AFFECT presents: The Waiting Room

“The Waiting Room”,
a participatory event led by Diego Agulló and artists from AFFECT Module IV
Sunday 30.08.2015 from 4 to 9pm


A waiting room, tables, chairs, reception. Forms, applications, questionnaires. You take a place, waiting for your turn. Your name is called and you are led to a different space. Behind the door is your interview partner. It may be an interviewer, your best friend, a trader, a dancer, an actor, maybe even yourself – you never know what to expect.

The Waiting Room opens space for encounters between strangers and it plays with the social rules of curiosity and interest, everyday behaviour and communication. You always come back to where you started: the waiting room, which itself becomes the space for mixing up the impressions and suspending the patterns.

The Waiting Room was initiated by Diego Agulló, Dimitry Paranyushkin, Peter Stamer, Clement Layes. http://waitingwaiting.com/
