show.Rooms_local is a one-time performance in a vacancy or an intervention in public space.
Based on biographical narratives, show.Rooms creates the series "My story is a museum - biographical art path". These evenings offer the public alternative city tours, which include personal experiences of people as stations in public space. The people that take center-stage, the so-called guides of each individual "biographical art path", become in this project narrators of their own story, giving insight to tales of the city that are otherwise not accessible to a broad public. This gives a presence to stories, experiences and people connected to a city that otherwise get little attention from the public. By connecting the life experiences of the guides to the city’s past and current development, opportunities for alternative takes on the writing of a city’s history are made visible.
The preparation of such interventions encompasses biography workshops by show.Rooms for the guides. The workshops bring together biographical and remembrance work, thus identifying one focus topic for the intervention.
