Super Terram - Dérive

In the framework of the Summer Assembly 2030, the Super Terram team organised a 'dérive' - a semi-programmed exploration of an unknown terrain - on Schaerbeek-Formation. This derelict railway site - the largest open, undeveloped space in the Brussels Capital Region - is little known to Brussels citizens.

During this dérive, some thirty participants explored the site and experimented with alternative approaches to the urban soils it contains. Participants explored the terrain in eight stages. They went from point to point in groups, drawing inspiration from fragments of historical narratives, science fiction, archaeological notes, etc.

The result was a playful, creative and collective wandering from which alternative stories emerged for Schaerbeek-Formation as well as for life related to the soils that are there.
