What if the moon were just a jump away?
Publication of script based on research on Participatory Budget, 9th Mercosul Biennal
What if the moon were just a jump away? is publication of a script based on conversations from research of artists Bik Van der Pol into the Participatory Budget (PB) in Porto Alegre (Brazil). This material has been (re)composed to allow the different voices that occur in each instance of the discussion of PB to become manifest as a dispute, as a discursive and imaginative fight in space. The moon, an image shared and owned by all inhabitants of this planet, is conjured as an other location towards which it might be possible to exercise and activate a new participatory imagination, to eventually implement change to take hold here on earth.
