Urban heartbeat tour team: Alicia Zamora

We would like to tell you more about the urban heartbeat tour team that will travel your countries during the tour. Besides of Jim Avignon, our guest artist and coordinator of the public painting actions, you will meet Holger Beier and Alicia Zamora. She is a sociologist, plastic artist and cultural executive.

Alicia is the responsible person for connecting the artists participating in the project with the local socio-political and cultural scenario in every country. Moreover, she is going to inform us about the tour writing a travel diary, regarding the most important happenings on tour.

As part of her work with the Goethe-Institute, last year Alicia started a pre-investigation trip visiting the countries which now represent the stations of the tour of interventions in public spaces, the results of her investigation allowed the Goethe-Institute to easily design the Tour Urban Heartbeat.

The pre-investigation makes it possible that every country develops its own artistic intervention focusing on its own sociocultural context and its specific scenario.

Alicia is looking forward to getting to know you!
