Hillbrowification

“SPACE TALES, future cities” is a platform for interdisciplinary and international artistic exchange between artists from South Africa and Germany about architectures of exclusion, migration and xenophobia. Through a series of artistic collaborations, the aim is to create a transversal dialogue on these topics. The artistic proposals deal with the idea of creating “architectures of the future”: reversing exclusion through the performativity of fictions, from docu-fiction to futurisms.

Hillbrowfication was a project conducted by Constanza Macras in collaboration with choreographer Lizi Estaras, fashion designer Roman Handt, dramaturg Tamara Saphir and Gerard Bester.
