Moving in Free Zones #2 is a project which implied the realization of a workshop involving inhabitants of Oud-Charlois, Carnisse and Tarwewijk (South of Rotterdam) and students of Urban Body/TU Delft in order to produce the film ZUID in collaboration with the filmmaker Jacopo Mario Gandolfi. MFZ#2 was realized in collaboration with Urban Body/TU Delft.
The intention of the workshop was to understand the use of the public space by the inhabitants of Charlois and to stimulate dreams, whishes and aspirations of inhabitants concerning their future lives in the neighborhood, by means of a film. The process of the film involved a filmmaker, inhabitans of Charlois and students of Urban Body/TU Delft to interact and create the sequences of the film. The film portrays the neighborhood by telling about 6 stories belonging to 6 main characters and extras which are selected inhabitants of the submentioned areas. The 6 private stories converge in the last sequence of the film in which inhabitants re-appropriate a public square and reveal themselves and their dreams in the public sphere by changing it.
In respect to that, the task of the students of Urban Body/TU Delft was to understand and to translate dreams of the inhabitants/characters into installations which have been built in Moerkerkeplein (Tarwewijk) on occasion of the last sequence. This last sequence was conceived also as a public event for the neighborhood which consolidated our presence in the area and stimulated new design proposals by Urban Body/TU Delft’s students concerning the public domain in Charlois.
