The RedBall Project

Next Stop: Lausanne
Posted by Gestalten—05/2013

The RedBall is still rolling. Leaving behind a crowd of impressed Parisians, Kurt Perschke's project moves on to Lausanne, Switzerland in early July. Beyond that, a series of videos will be released over the next weeks, revealing how the red ball inserts itself into new urban environments over and over again and how it activates people's emotions and reactions. As a playful nomadic intervention, it does not only carry the effect of surprise, but also lets the city dwellers experience their everyday surrounding from a fresh perspective. The project opens a door to thoughts of "what-if" and supports mental experiments on changing and enlivening the urban space.

According to the artist: "That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the RedBall Project. The larger arc of the project is how each city responds to that invitation and, over time, what the developing story reveals about our individual and cultural imagination."

Perschke's RedBall Project and other strategies of public art are featured in Going Public.
