Daydreaming the Archive

Daydreaming the Archive is a live performative and audio walking tour guided by post_migrants from different professional and geographic backgrounds living in Frankfurt am Main. Guests are walked through an affective cartography of the city, woven between a lost and a regained sense of orientation: from a narrative of childhood memories of war in Bosnia in a Frankfurt doll clinic to the conjuring of Buenos Aires through opera singing in the streets of Bornheim, from redoing, at Frankfurt’s main cemetery, the steps walked many times in different latitudes to soundscapes that speak of lost, failed or awaited photographs from family archives.
