Journey to Mars

Logbooks. A collective creation project


10 creators, activists and thinkers and 10 young migrants, wards and former wards of state, are the crew members on the Journey to Mars, a project that brings them together to think about two major concepts: the future and the journey. The red planet becomes both the metaphor for a possible tomorrow and the horizon for a journey that the 20 crew members will make together in a series of meetings over two months.

The 20 participants in this Journey to Mars will be organized into groups or missions that use various creative languages to experiment with ways of thinking about the future, change and being uprooting. Their reflection on the future will be translated into the choice of a word that takes the form of five short audiovisual pieces directed by photographer and artist Tanit Plana that will be added to the audiovisual creation project A Vocabulary for the Future.

Thinking collectively always involves a shift. At the same time, labelling the future with words is just a way of reviewing our present: who we are and who we want to be. For all of these reasons, Journey to Mars will also be a book, a kind of Log that records the journey made by the participants and, at the same time, a space to think calmly about the meaning of leave, take off, arrive, move, say goodbye or welcome. The book, published jointly with Edicions Poncianes, will be an artistic object with texts, poems and illustrations by the 20 participants, along with photographs by Tanit Plana.

Journey to Mars is a project of the CCCB, La Sullivan, Edicions Poncianes and Punt de referència.

Do we know if a house is just a place? Or is it also a refuge? Is it just the walls or is it also the bodies that inhabit it, that have raised them, that will one day be enshrouded by them? A safe space that saves us. What makes a house stop being a house: it becoming a home. Without laws. ...
