’Horses in Orbit’ is a research on memory. It narrates the story of both artists, who met in Nürnberg in 2011, and entangles it with two historical characters who belonged to that city during different times: Kaspar Hauser, the lost child of Europe and possible hare of the Royal House in Baden, and Georg Hartmann, an important scientist and creator of astronomical and navigation instruments in the Medieval times. From these two characters, the artists recognize and develop new ideas around orientation, space, sense of being lost, reencounter, domestication and numbed sensitivity.
Cristina Moreno García and Laia Ventayol García invite you to participate in this meeting to look after your own or found memories and experiences around Nürnberg’s map.
Tour from our memories and experiences exchanged on day 1.
Meeting point: Unschlittplatz, 90403, Nuremberg (this is the place where Kaspar Hauser was found for the first time). Please bring a bike and some recording tools.
The workshop will be held in German & English.
