Welcome to co-create a scenario for a future post-consumerism and a collaborative society. We will discuss, make simple sketches, write words etc on wallpaper. On the big inflatable structure -The Cloud Cathedral - movies of sketches will be screened.
Hi, we are first time Borderlings. You are welcome to our afternoon tea party at 3pm every day (bring cups) were we co-create a scenario for a post-consumerist and collaborative society. Also kids are welcome in company with parents. We gather in groups of about 8-10 people around sheets of decorative wallpaper on the ground, where we discuss, make simple idea sketches, write words, patterns and whatever. The ideas of the future post-consumerism and collaborative society can be of any kind - social, political, technical etc etc. It can be realistic in a near future or very visionary utopian dreams in a longer perspective.
It will also be possible to record short scenario stories which later can be listened to with headphones in The Cloud Cathedral.
The simple sketches on the wallpaper will afterwards be filmed with a mobile phone and then screened with projectors on the ceiling in the big inflatable structure - The Cloud Cathedral. The screened dreams - simple sketches and words - will form something like a medieval church with painting in the ceiling or like ancient cave drawings.
Everybody is also welcome to use the cathedral for different purpose, for example meditation, a chorus mass with ohms or just lying down relaxing for a small chat and looking upwards to all screened dreams etc.
We, Tomas and Magdalena, will make a start to the discussion with a scenario of our own, that will be published here in june/july and at the workshops. We will also post a schedule for workshops etc.
You are most welcome and we think it will be a interesting, fun and serious workshops. After Borderland we will continue to build The Cloud Cathedral for 100 years, as Sagrada Familia in in Barcelona until it is finished.
Tomas Lundberg and Magdalena Forshamn, architects and curators, are based in Göteborg and run Folkstaden, a platform for exhibitions, collaborations and debate. www.folkstaden.se

Plan: Due to short time we will manufacture the inflatable structure before arriving to Boesdal, it will be about size: l =7 m, b=4, h= 4 m. The thin fabric will form a space with overpressure from fans. It will be attached to the ground with sandbags and wires.
There are also plans for a simple bedouin like shelter roof made of a tarpaulin.
