Happening with 250 inhabitants of Kiruna, north of Sweden.
This Happening/ project was motivated by the sadness, numbness and fear that people had towards the situation of 'relocating their town' Kiruna because of the expanding of the huge iron mine it has.
It was an invitation for the people to form a collective body and stand at a symbolic spot, and to engage in the ‘rope pulling’ game as an invitation to reclaim their role in the political economical push pull game that will decide the future of their town.
I wondered how would it be to physically confront the crack? and if the crack would be the cause of a crack in the memory and history of the town?
