Ágens: The divine plague – Human-ethical searching game – with observation in Pesterzsébet
’This part of the city, built on a drained marsh, is a mix of the poor and a middle class habitants, a collection site. I live in a wild zone of it. I love it!’ Ágens
Ágens – during a private ‘story writing’ – reveals the hidden parts of the district, and also its iconic places and iconic figures.
During this finder game, Ágens lives an exploratory, and analyst walking at the past (it’s the result of the contemplative time of the Covid19) and she steps in interaction with her casual audience, and also with the local community, through Camus’s (Archives de La Peste) and her texts. She offers questions and tasks. The whole story is linear, but it’s also interpretable and understandable by it parts.
