Where are all the places we have lost?

Where are all the places we have lost? And which role do they still play in our lives? How do we remember places we experienced in the past, and that are now apparently lost forever? Think about squares, clubs, museums, schools, churches, parks, famous or not, where we grew up or visited on special occasions. Could it be possible to re-construct them for an audience through a personal narration? If so, which cultural values this narration would have?
Invisible Architectures project deals with these questions and many other relevant ones, by employing performative and scientific research strategies. Its aim is to test the critical role of subjective processes of remembrance, and their position towards the lack of an inclusive collective memory.
 
Simone Basani and Alice Ciresola, residents at LAZNIA CCA, are currently working on ‘Invisible Architectures’ project, focused on the memories of Tricity’s citizens about their own lost places. Take a look at the trailer of the project, where Beata is telling about her lost place in Gdansk:

 
The project is conducted in collaboration with the Immigrant Support Center in Gdansk.
