MAGIC LANGUAGE// GAME OF WHISPERS


2015-09-09


Magic language///Game of whispers is an innovative curatorial concept based on the children’s game known by many names, including ‘téléphone arabe’, ‘chinese whispers’ and ‘the messenger game’, where a person whispers a message to the next, passing the message through a line of people until the last person announces the message to the entire group. Curator Marianne Zamecznik developed this method for selecting contemporary crafts from across the Nordic region.
It is been a privilege to be part of this project working as a curator for Sweden.
