Project at ZK/U - Roos Cornelius

Roos Cornelius ( Netherlands )

In the context of the ZK/U Residency, Roos Cornelius will focus on an intriguing object that is oscillating somewhere in between reality and fiction, namely, the rumor. As long as a rumor is unconfirmed, it is neither true nor false; it neither is, nor isn’t. The rumor has proven to be an effective tool in both social and political contexts, having both a terrorizing and a freeing potential. Yet, a rumor seems to follow an interesting set of psychological rules, which Roos Cornelius intends to examine carefully during her project in Berlin. She will create several rumors around a specific building in Berlin. The building has been empty for years, but will suddenly seem to be inhabited again. At least, that’s what the neighbors will think.
