The project focuses on the voluntary work of people with cognitive impairments. The commitment of these people is hardly noticed in society. As a rule, they are only perceived as recipients of help. The project breaks with this one-sided perception.
In an accompanied artistic process under the direction of the artist Carola Rümper, the participants developed photographs that represent their own honorary office. The photographic results are summarized in the memo game life spot.
In the exhibition, all the photographs taken can be seen lying on the floor as a giant memo. The expansive installation is at the same time a walk-in playing surface, each individual playing card measuring 45x45cm. As in the smaller model, the visitors are invited to find the same pairs of images.
The memory game is a socially known and popular medium to bring people together. A play form, which introduces visually into a topic. In life spot, idiosyncratic motifs are chosen for a special theme. Inclusion or participation of all humans in the society moves as topic into the foreground. Through the memo game form, the theme is brought "playfully" into society.
Artistic Direction: Carola Rümper
