Report a Missing Person
As an experimental and inclusive micro laboratory “Pourquoi jamais” is interested in fostering artistic creation in an interdisciplinary, collective and socially engaged perspective. Pourquoi jamais was born in 2008 with the creation of a show, Le Cadeau. Constantly building new relationships, their commitment to social matters is materialized through collaborations with other local organizations.
A phone booth from another era emits a persistent ring. Like in a film, you answer the call. A cheerful voice is on the other end of the line, which is incongruous to the sinister atmosphere. Thanks to an interactive automated calling system, you are asked to signal the disappearance of an unkown woman.
After a chain of zany, absurd, cynical, at times biting options, Report a Missing Person lives as an interdisciplinary installation focusing on issues related to the many disappearances that exist both in our history and the present day. Don’t lose your way!
