About The Event
Lili Jenks (PaperGlue"n"Scotch) is a language educator and street artist that has combined interactive and educational language projects with performance arts to educate children, adolescents and university students across Europe and South America. Claire Terrien (Public Games) is a Berlin based artist and architect that performs in the public space.
More recently Lili and Claire have been working closely with residents of Berlin Neukölln and Lichtenberg on a new community project, LingoBingo. The LingoBingo StreetCart is a tool designed for the public space that generates language games with the participation of the inhabitants of a city.
Discuss and discover their original way of bringing neighbors and cultures closer together through play and a bit of healthy competition.
During their residency Lili and Claire will engage with Geneva's brand new Cité Internationale in Petit-Saconnex to create together didactic games about language and habitat. The new neighbourhood is coming alive with the new international operational center of Médecins Sans Frontière, housing for 500 students of the Graduate Institute and housing by Terra and Casa.
