Isman Jesmi is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by artist Emeka Ogboh.

Ogboh says, “Each of the three projects I mentored delve into transformative experiences of conflicts, and explore their traces in the body’s deep-tissue level, through the senses. I have selected Iman Jesmi, whose work Sensory Souvenir explores the impact of immigration on cities and how migrants must adapt to their new surroundings, to continue as my Forecast mentee.

"His project provides the possibility of engaging with the multiplicities of sensorial faculties, and has the potential to continue evolving organically in its exploration of migration and immigrant experiences across the world. Migration continues to be part and parcel of humanity, with political, economic, and social conditions constantly changing and creating new migratory scenarios. The core aspect of Jesmi’s Sensory Souvenir involves engaging with the urban space as a place of cross-cultural interactions and encounters, and this approach provides rich and diverse anthropological findings on human behavior.”

Simona Deaconescu is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by dancer and choreographer Compagnie Mathilde Monnier.

Monnier will accompany Romanian artist and choreographer Deaconescu in her research into the links between dance and epidemics in the work Ramanenjana.

“Dance is a medium for understanding how we can live together,” Monnier says. “We are at a moment in history when the body has become a central focus in our lives. Simona has undertaken a journey in time and space to draw on a history that, albeit not her own, has invaded our lives over the past two years. It is based on events that took place in nineteenth-century Madagascar, where European observers reported massive group dances that spread like an epidemic. Through her research into archival material, but also through the links she has forged with Malagasy choreographer Gaby Saranouffi, Simona questions the reception of those rituals of passage and of healing, and seeks to recontextualize them.”

Özge Samancı is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by cartoonist Ulli Lust.

Lust is mentoring Samancı, whose graphic novel Evil Eye is slated for publication in 2023 by Uncivilized Books.

Lust says, “It has been a great pleasure to be able to work with the three artists over the past months. Each is a passionate and gifted storyteller and I will continue to follow their projects. I will accompany Özge in the final refinement of her work Evil Eye. Set in contemporary Istanbul against the backdrop of upcoming elections, the story captivates the reader with vivid descriptions and the author’s precise power of observation. It is less about political and more about socio-political challenges, especially those faced by young women in a classically patriarchal culture, which Özge describes with deadpan humor. A mysterious murder case, which two math students become key witnesses in, drives the plot forward.“

Flora Détraz - PLI is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by Sofia Jernberg - singer, composer.

Jernberg will accompany dancer and choreographer Détraz with the performative work C-R-I, in which Détraz incorporates vocal improvisation, centered around the act of screaming, into a live solo performance.

Jernberg says, “Because of her ability to invent and master a vocal language she set out to explore, weaving it together with a distinct choreographic practice to create a work that is truly unique to her, I have chosen to further the mentorship process with Flora Détraz.”

Jaya Klara Brekke is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by digital policy expert Francesca Bria.

“In the post-pandemic phase, we have a historic opportunity to lay the foundations for a renewal of our societies, projecting us into a digital, sustainable, and carbon-neutral future. Today this means, above all, addressing our twin challenges of the climate crisis and the need to reconquer our digital sovereignty and democratize the digital transition,” says Bria.

“All the nominees I selected are rethinking our common digital space by raising awareness, developing new narratives, and experimenting with alternative solidarity-based infrastructures for collective action. In particular, the work of Jaya Klara Brekke presents an incredible potential, since it opens up new interfaces for the perception of our post-human condition. Her Dashboards for Posthuman Life stimulates a new type of imagination, sensitivity, and intelligence, making us understand how one‘s actions and data affect other humans and nonhumans facing the crisis of the Anthropocene.“

Luísa Sol is the mentee of #Forecast6 chosen by architect Tatiana Bilbao.

Bilbao will accompany Sol on her project Architectures of Inclusion and Exclusion, which catalogues images of homes in the media to understand the relationship between the built environment, aspirational projections, and who gets to participate in creating the onscreen notions of home we are exposed to.

Bilbao says, “The project problematizes the mediatized notions of ‘home,’ and highlights the role of media in the construction of our built environment. Luísa’s project aims to understand how these notions have not only created grave discriminations but have also been the tool with which to perpetuate them. By creating a physical representation of the archetypical (Western) idea of a home and projecting on it a barrage of images culled from screens, Luísa invites viewers to consider this collective construct and its omissions.”

M.S. Harkness, Time Under Tension

M.S.Harkness is nominated in the category Translating Sensations, mentored by Ulli Lust. Her project for Forecast is a 260-page graphic memoir which examines the author’s life in her twenties as she uses movement and weightlifting to find balance while living with past sexual trauma. The narrative takes place over one year of her life as she becomes a certified personal trainer.

Titled Time Under Tension, the work is M.S. Harkness’s third autobiographical graphic novel. By expanding on the themes of trauma memoir from her previous comics, Harkness hopes to visualize a narrative centered around her journey to recovery.

Since her nomination for a Forecast mentorship in May, Harkness has been editing her work for tone and clarity, as well as re-building parts of her narrative to reflect more ethical choices in storytelling from personal experiences. At the Forecast Forum, she will read passages from her book developed during this period.

Tune in to watch the work on our livestreamed #ForecastForum from September 9–11, 6pm daily on forecast-platform.com

Sarah Oberrauch, Playground Stories

Curator and educator Sarah Oberrauch is nominated in the category From Stories to Spaces, mentored by Tatiana Bilbao. Her proposal is an imaginative playground that would stimulate children's creativity rather than include objects meant for directed use.

Oberrauch is working together with children to develop a playground with, rather than for, kids, and examine the relationship between play and space.

Inspired by the landscape of the Italian Alps, she looks at mountain summits and other physical barriers as a starting point from which to potentially overcome, through play, physical as well as mental obstacles such as fear, failure, or shame.

Oberrauch’s goal is to funnel excessive energy into socially bonding activities to foster a feeling of community. She seeks to create an environment in which kids and adults can experience their bodies not only through movements choreographed by its usage, but also in thrilling moments of loss of control.

At the digital Forecast Forum, Oberrauch invites viewers to experience and interpret space playfully through a video work.

Tune in to watch the work on our livestreamed #ForecastForum from September 9–11, 6pm daily on forecast-platform.com

Flora Détraz, C-R-I

Dancer and choreographer Flora Détraz is nominated in the category Sound as Organized Time, mentored by Sofia Jernberg. For Forecast, she is creating a solo performance centered on the act of screaming.

The project’s first phase will examine how screams are used in different cultures. Especially women, she argues, are taught to position their bodies and voices in harmonious, inobtrusive ways. Through choreographic tools involving weight, support, articulation, presence, space, and rhythm, she probes various ways of embodying voice. With this exploration, Détraz seeks to delve into the deeply nonrational, provocative, erotic, and feminine spiritual potential of releasing a scream.

At the Forecast Forum, Détraz will screen an experimental film with an original soundtrack based on screams as an expression of rage, sudden stupefaction, or a terrific pleasure. In the middle of a forest mirroring the invisible, there’s a face floating. Playing with distortion, transfiguration, and dismemberment, the artist is facing her own ghosts.

Tune in to the livestreamed #ForecastForum from September 9-11 on Forecast-platform.com

Mentorships for Audacious Minds

Forecast’s Fifth Edition Kicks Off with New Format

The six international mentors have selected 18 projects to accompany in Forecast’s fifth edition. Out of nearly 500 applications from 98 countries, the six distinguished mentors for the fifth edition of Forecast—chef Manu Buffara (Brazil), curator Koyo Kouoh (Cameroon), writer and researcher Evgeny Morozov (Belarus), visual artist and theater director Markus Öhrn (Sweden), musician Du Yun (China), and photographer and filmmaker Tobias Zielony (Germany)—have each selected three proposals.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Forecast has updated its format to decentralize its resources and enable an extended mentoring period for all 18 nominees. All nominated projects will benefit from mentoring through the end of October. This updated format is regarded not merely as a substitute to the originally planned Forecast Forum in Berlin—which had to be called off due to the coronavirus—but as an alternative form of exchange and support.

The selection process is two-tiered. The mentors will remotely accompany the projects and choose one mentee each on November 1. Those six mentees’ projects will be further accompanied to completion, and presented at the Forecast Festival in April 2021 in Berlin.

This is the fourth time that the association Onsdagsskolen by architect Susanne Eeg organizes an international workshop in Skagen. Each time inviting ten students and recent graduates to spend a week in Skagen to learn about the life and architecture of the small town and exploring a new spatial thesis. HOW TO APPLY /// The Skagen summer school is open to both students and professionals with a background in relevant fields or those who are interested in exploring new interdisciplinary environments. Applicants are expected to have basic experience working with spatial design. To apply, please submit a one page motivational letter and a short portfolio / showreel (via a file sharing link) to: [email protected] no later than June 14th 2019. The participation fee is 3.500 DKK (470€) per person and includes tuition fees, accommodation and full board. All participants will be accommodated together in a large house.
