De/tours forms part of a yearlong exploration of Marseille-Provence 2013 (European Capital of Culture). As Europe entered a fifth year of crisis Decentrederspace invited a number of international artists to contribute to a residency programme, based in Marseille.
Work made by the artists included performances, situations and artistic research practices that responded to the idea of ‘European Capital of Culture’ from a marginal outside, and wholly foreign perspective. All these artistic interventions were offered as detours or digressions from the official Marseille-Provence 2013 Capital of Culture programme, creating temporary artistic insertions as cultural exchange, and as offerings in/to Marseille. In this film Decentrederspace has collected together something of the residues and memories of these artistic intrusions. counterproductions 2013
