Remont
Case Study

Intro

Remont has existed since 1999 as an independent, self-organised structure. The most important thing which Remont staff had to work out in their practical work is to operate within an unstable, changeable, undefined environment and, at the very same time, to remain a support for many others.

Many layers of this unstable environment – geo-political, social, cultural, global, local, personal… lead to paradoxical everyday situations which require flexible reactions and sometimes truly personal decision-making. On this occasion we will try to depict and analyse paradoxical, blurred, grey-zone situations from our everyday working experience in some kind of open textual form or correspondence among actors.

Assumptions:
  • Old floating cultural models in new environmental constellations are partly or totally non functional
  • Cultural initiatives and the public should find a way to overcome simple, prevalent consuming models
  • Everything can start by admitting and depicting invalid situations
  • Redefined needs and roles should lead to new, functional models
