Artist Statement:


    TentVision was implemented by the Bremen artists Jürgen Amthor, Marion Bösen, Patricia Lambertus. The three artists performed and exhibited art works in public space that were created together with by-passers and artists from Durban as a “re-survey” of urbanity as a social and cultural space with art as a medium of exchange between the spheres and people. Therefore the artists set up a tent at different places in Durban, KZNSA Gallery, BAT Center, City Hall, Durban Art Gallery, UShaka Marine World and DUT University. People could enter the tent and share images of Durban with the artists. In a looping slideshow all shared images piled up forming layers of memories and views. Not only locals shared images with the artists but also conference participants. Result was a collection of personal visual statements on Durban from the inside and outside perspective.
