mis-guided was co-produced with Belluard Bollwerk International, Fribourg (Switzerland), where it formed the twelve-day backbone to the Festival in 2008. Six artists from 276 international applicants were commissioned to intervene into the cityscape, and were mentored by Wrights & Sites in the months leading up to BBI. They were Alexander Hana (Switzerland), Christian Hasucha (Germany), Nicolas Galeazzi (Switzerland), Blaise Roulin & Yoann Chassot (Switzerland), Rajni Shah (UK), and Robert Walker (Switzerland). The city’s former railway station was converted into a ‘Tourist Mis-Information Centre’, where Wrights & Sites curated a series of artists’ talks, discussions with local and international tourist bodies, a film programme, exhibitions, and a sound installation. Additionally, Wrights & Sites led two public derivés.
