Wachter and Jud are working collaboratively on extended research into current refugee policy and the lack of communication and isolation that surrounds asylum seeker detainees. Through their work, Wachter and Jud aim to consider an expanded dialogue that attempts to hear the voices of people living in detention to include the currently excluded perspectives on this complex humanitarian issue. Christoph Wachter & Mathias Jud have worked together on participatory community projects since 2000 and their collaboration fuses art, science and technology. The duo have received numerous international awards and accolades from Ars Electronica, Transmediale, the Saxon State Ministry for Science and the Arts, Swiss Federal Office of Culture just to name a few.
