StoryTelling:Europe!
StoryWalks and AudioStation by Melika Ramić & protagonists of Brunnenmarket
June 23 & 24, 2022
Presentation at Brunnenpassage: 23rd of June till September 2022

From April to the end of June 2022, the Brunnenpassage will implement an artistic project together with a class of the elementary school Gaullachergasse and the artists Melika Ramić and Livia Heiß.

The Brunnenmarket is the longest street market in Europe with people from all over the world. In StoryTelling:Europe! stories and perspectives on a peaceful, diverse, future Europe are collected. Together, the children visit store owners and workers at the Brunnenmarket. In small groups, they explore stores, pubs and market stalls to get to know the business and the people behind it, and invite the actors of the market for talks and interviews on biographical, both local and transnational topics.

At the end of June, the students will present their experiences from this transmedial storytelling project to an audience in the form of StoryWalks. They guide the visitors to places at the Brunnenmarket, discover hidden stories and invent new ones together.

Public audio guided StoryWalks: June 23 and 24, 2022.
AudioStation and exhibition at Brunnenpassage: 23rd of June till September 2022

StoryTelling:Europe! is an intergenerational and transcultural project that uses artistic means to foster a community as well as a dialogue about our future in a jointly shaped Europe.
The StoryWalks are supported by OEAD.

StoryTelling:Europe! is part of the European Pavilion: an initiative by the European Cultural Foundation that aims to support and promote artistic projects that imagine desirable and sustainable futures for Europe.

StoryTelling:Europe! will be further presented at an exhibition at the Volkskunde Museum Vienna in autumn this year.

StoryTelling:Europe! – A Viennese Caravansarai

StoryTelling:Europe!
A Viennese Caravanserai – a project by Asma Aiad & the business owners of the Brunnenmarket
June to October 2022

A Viennese Caravanserai explores and illuminates the history and dynamics of Europe at Brunnenmarket from a very new perspective.

Questions of social and European solidarity are more present than ever, especially here – at the longest street market in Europe, the Brunnenmarket. Here, a space for people from all over the world should be created to tell the stories about a future Europe. The inspiration for this is the ambience of a Caravanserai, where many different people come together to rest and exchange ideas. At the focus of A’Wiener Karavanserai are the stories of those who make this market what it is.
What makes living together in this Viennese Caravanserai easier and what makes it more difficult? How should a cosmopolitan Europe pictured as a Caravanserai of our day’s look like and how not? What can be learned or unlearned from each other?
Asma Aiad, a conceptual artist, activist and youth worker, develops A Viennese Caravanserei, a mixed-media stationery exhibition co-created with the protagonists of the Brunnenmarket.

Exhibition Opening with guided tours: June 24, 2022
