    EU Green Card Lottery project: some positioning problems in the age of global migrations

    Project "EU Green Card Lottery" (EUGCL) is based on a Internet site www.green-card-lottery-eu.org that mimics the tricky websites that claim to be official US Green Card Lotteries. This project is about migrations, frontiers, continental institutions, but it is also deeply link to spatial issues.

    This fictitious website is presented alongside its database that presents pictures and personal information of all the thousands of people that applied to our project lottery. Being confronted to potential real migrants from all over the Third World provoke on the spectator from the First World a reflection about the very point at which (s)he stands. Here the Internet technologies allow to rediscover a omplex stratification of spaces: the location of the presentation (let’s say Chicago), the location of the website & database (the virtual Web), the location of the project carrier (Europe), the location of the real applicants (95% coming from the Third World). All these places are converging into this project’s single experience. EUGCL reproduces a pyramid of locations, that tries to push up the idea of the reproduction of power relations into the supposed horizontality of the Web. Depending on where you are looking at this website, you have a completely different approach of its « nature ». Invisible walls for real cultural / economical / political / topographical / technogical frontiers.

     Société Réaliste is a Paris-based cooperative created by Ferenc Gróf and Jean-Baptiste Naudy in June 2004. This cooperative manages the development of several research and economical structures such as a laboratory for urban signs, an immigration agency, a political trend design bureau, an administration dedicated to the politics of the space, a legislative consulting firm, a counter-biennial or a company designing marketing models for the contemporary art field.
