Although I can’t be physically in Djerba this year due to a health problem I want to be part in this wonderful project which is in my eyes a wonderful opportunity to continue the efforts which started two years ago in Tunis at the Goethe Institute and were followed by Interference in the Medina of Tunis in 2016. I was really deeply touched by the hospitality and openness of the new friends I met at there. For Hartung and Trenz light and text are possibilities to discover and react on unknown places and sites as well to get in contact with the local audience, to share and discuss experiences and hopes.
Let’s continue this dialogue by the means of light!

For more than twenty years Detlef Hartung und Georg Trenz have been working with architectural interventions with typography. In their spatial projections, they explore the relationship among text, image, public space, light and sensory perception. With their textual projections they have animated buildings such as churches, theaters and galleries. Their facades or interiors appear to be set in constant transformation due to the interaction of the projected content, the architectural structures and the viewers’ position.
