OUTCAST REGISTRATION is a gender-specific arts-based research project that focuses on an issue that western European countries have consistently ignored.
Although women drug addicts represent “only” 4 to 14% of Europe’s total population of drug users and are thus considered by the legal system and society as a “negligible phenomenon”, around 65% of the inmates in women’s prisons are drug addicts.
How can it be that this state of affairs leads to the marginalisation of this group, and what has brought them into this precarious position?

OUTCAST REGISTRATION – a user interface that interacts with a virtual sound installation transforms current and future European biographies of drug-addicted women into a European Outcast Choir (EOC).
Tenfold awareness in cultural and public spaces that the European Outcast Choir is a matter of public concern.
