Thursday 13. December 6 pm, CORPO 6 galerie, courtyard, entrance C, first floor, Herzbergstrasse 55, 10365 Berlin.
“Out of Place_an ongoing archive” is an open and continuously upgradable archive, which was established with the aim of providing an overview of the widest possible range of theoretical references and ideas concerning the concept of nomadism in relation to the forms of contemporary artistic production. Behind the project is the idea that being out of place is the condition which enables a person to continuously reposition himself in one place. This process, not only physical, it is necessary to build the constantly changing sense of our presence in the space. The installation contains around eighty documents sent by artists, critics and curators. The first corpus of the archive has been shown in the section Independents3 of ArtVerona, Italy, in October. The visitors will be asked to contribute once again to the construction of the archive by participating directly in the cataloguing and indexing of the various contributions present in Out of Place. In this way, as a welcome guest, the archive will find its temporary location within CORPO 6.

December 1, 2012
Over the day of December 1st, we recorded all the words and sentences sent by the participants, using the old "fresco" technique, on the walls of "Lu Cafausu". It was a moment of celebration and reflection, as well as an attempt to create a physical space where all the individual stories, references and affects can compose a whole. It also functioned as a homage to "Lu Cafausu", an "imaginary place that really exists".
We met on December 1st, 2012, from noon to the sunset, around "Lu Cafausu".
In early November, people from across the world celebrate the Day of the Dead, remembering those who passed away and often visiting their graves. In one way or another, we all try to establish contact with our loved ones, and sometimes we consider our own common and mortal destiny, therefore reflecting upon death in general.
On occasion of the 3rd edition of “The Celebration of the Living (who reflect upon death)”, we have proposed a collective action, open to everyone, which has been held in different places at the same time. Each participant has met his/her loved ones, friends and relatives who passed away. Everyone has tried to imagine and configure the right way to get in touch with the dead either through ritual, gesture, or thought.
A plurality of people was in contact, at exactly the same moment, with others who are no longer with us. This created a shared space of life and death. A space between they, the dead, and we, the living, who share their destiny of finitude.
All contributions sent by participants can be found at www.lucafausu.tk.
Thanks to Marsèlleria for its support and for making this event possible.
