OpTV - Blockparty

At a local Blockparty on the Joubertplantsoen in Transvaal, OpTV set up an interactive TV-studio in collaboration with Annechien Meier and Sabrina Lindemann from OpTrek. Visitors were asked the questions: “Where do you come from?” and “Where are you going?”. These seem like simple questions, but in a neighbourhood where the inhabitants are moved out in favour of urban renewal, and in a climate where ethnic origins are regarded with increasing suspicion, it generates answers on many different levels. Participants were offered a map according to the scale of their response, on which they could trace the answers.
