HIDDEN FACES works with an original Swiss theme, with centuries-old customs, and at the same time can be applied intensively to the foreign people who are seeking asylum here. We tell this man about ourselves, of our peculiarity as a Swiss, and then leave them free to design: their mask, on which they can also stick their story, if they so wish. A playful way of dealing with tradition and modernity, with the Hiersein and the Woanders-come here.
The workshop brings a few positive moments to the participants and helps them to create colorful memories in a difficult time. The masks are the witnesses of this time. A book is also planned, which captures their stories. The project brings very little light into the routine of everyday life and simultaneously leaves something permanent.
