event curation / Visual identity

Refuge Wordwide Berlin

“In her book «In Memory of The Present», Sophie Douala  invited inspiring friends and relatives to share stories and memories of their past, which she reinterpreted in a collection of visual essays. The book gives a hint of what a better future could feel like, inspired by positive ghosts.

For this new chapter of the book, Sophie has invited contributors to perform around the stories that inspired their contribution as well as the publishing house Look Back and Laugh to showcase their work.”

The all day program which took place at the Berlin based community radio Refuge Worldwide featured an exhibition, an art market, a poetry reading, a food installation, a live musical performance and a dj set.

A celebration of the vibrant and eclectic European creative scene.
