When you enter a city, you enter a story. Each city has its own distinctive spirit. Historical layers, cultural background and people shape unique mental environment full of different senses and visual indicators. Patchworks of narratives,stories of people, city myths and folklore form mental code. Visual code are expressed in objects of physical reality. Each person reads and sees these codes differently.
Belarus is a white spot on the map of Europe for many foreigners, in other words - Terra Incognita. Terra Incognita implies exploration and discoveries, fresh impressions and cultural exchange. Often local residents plunged into daily routine stop noticing the beauty and unique features of their land, which is more visible for newcomers. We invite you to discover Terra Incognita during workshop week.
The workshops idea is the research of Minsk visual and mental codes. Participants are expected to find and express their external perception of Minsk using such tools as photo, video, graphic and digital design. As a result of workshops, we see a variety of media products such as photo and video presentations, posters, video clips, short movies etc., which would show the perception of the city code.
