call for participation

tracing Godwin

For the exhibition tracing mobility the artist georg klein is looking for 
people in Europe, who want to participate in the project tracing Godwin : 
Godwin is an illegal immigrant from Nigeria, who came via Libya and Lampedusa 
to Naples. Without language knowledge, without passport, without familiy 
support and without professional education his perspective is bad. But he 
doesn't complain. For selling Godwin has to appear in public. As an illegal he 
has to avoid the public. Nowhere in Europe he is welcome. He is not allowed to 
go further.

His trace is now extended virtually to countries and cities where Godwin never 
could come. His photo with the pot clothes he is selling appears in more and 
more cities in a site-specific way: with the background of just that wall where 
the poster is hanging.

Everybody in Europe can send a photo of a wall, where Godwin should appear. 

1 - Send your photo of a wall (upright, frontal perspective, 3m distance, high 
resolution) to following email adress: 
Your photo will be used as a background for Godwin and sent back as a jpg-file. 

2 - Please print out your Godwin photo in a big format (poster) and hang it at 
your chosen wall.

3 - Please make a photo of your wall with your Godwin poster and send it back 
for documentation together with the adress of the wall. If you want to be 
mentioned, please tell your name and nationality.
