In contrast to the rest of the u19 – CREATE YOUR WORLD festival, where lots of things can be tried out in open labs or learned in one-on-one conversations, there is stuff here that can be discovered only by careful examination and doesn’t come to light until you’re prepared to change your point of view.
You can consider it a sort of reward for sharpening your own senses. In this neighborhood of POSTCITY, festival visitors can come upon examples of anamorphosis, phenomena that become visible or legible only when one stands on a particular point and assumes a suitable perspective. Point of View addresses precisely these facts and circumstances, which can be understood just as well in a figurative sense. Interrelationships and meanings too can often be recognized only from a certain perspective.
Point of View is set up both on a large scale in the spacious halls of this former logistics facility as well as in tiny, inconspicuous corners everywhere. In the Point of View open lab, you can scrutinize this anamorphosis model and try it out yourself.
