Partner Organisation

Atelier Mondial

Her practice is primarily concerned with performing broken moments in official languages. Currently, Munnik’s research interests are on immigrant-descended youth culture, dialects, and how to transcribe these languages while maintaining their integrity.

Munnik explains: “For this project, I propose to collaborate with young speakers of coded languages, developed in and around urban spaces in Switzerland. I want to develop a project for transcribing youth vernaculars collaboratively, which should reflect the nature of code-switching as a practice: something which cannot be fixed and mutates depending on its environment.”
