After having finished the event "Border Speaking" in 2009 along the borders in Central Europe, Atelier Limo is glad to inform you that the website of their new project "the Detour" is now online: www.detour2011.eu
By suggesting the project “the Detour” to Turku 2011 and Tallinn 2011, our aim was to raise the issue of shared memory between Finland and Estonia. To do so, we decided to link up both towns by solid land, making a detour by St Petersburg and Russia, the Great Eastern neighbour that has influenced the history of these two nations.
All the photographs, the sounds and the stories we collected during our journeys around the Gulf of Finland as well as the interviews of the people we met are all made available on this internet site. In the next weeks, we'll be again in Russia, Finland and Estonia to collect more material for our documentary film. We will inform you on our website.
In the meanwhile, we wish you a nice discovery!
