Our perception of space is shaped by habitual and conventional relationships to it, by the tangible and intangible laws of place. Our movement through city space is deeply affected by dominant spatial frameworks. These are constructed by municipal authorities, the tourism or heritage industries, architects and planners, real estate agents, surveillance camera manufacturers, and so on, with the aid of devices such as guidebooks, maps/plans, information sheets, guided tours, CCTC and security, signposts and pathways.
As the backbone of the Belluard Bollwerk International 2008, Wrights & Sites, BBI and the Pour-cent culturel Migros present a programme of new „mis-guided” work by international artists that aims to disupt these frameworks and reveal the unexpected, the „elsewheres” in the city of Fribourg (Switzerland).
