Project description
TROLLHAUS – MAISON DE TROLLS examines public and private spheres in the age of digital networks in the cases of Tunisia and Switzerland. The team of artists – made up of actors, cyber activists and internet experts – explore the question of what role computer know-how and platforms such as Facebook and twitter had during Arab revolutions.  An answer will also be sought to how acts of speaking and network forms, and the virtual world, impact our real public spaces. The team of artists will develop a stage installation in which the actors, accompanied by a Tunisian musician, will switch rooms with the use of a fictional elevator. The real and tangible stage space will be contrasted with the abstract and virtual world – in addition, know-how and future variations of knowledge will be projected.
