Labor M – Art Communication

Several times a week, art communication flanks all exhibitions in Schloss Biesdorf. Labor M offers unconventional and experimental approaches to the artistic content of the exhibitions. In its own "lab space", the workshop on the ground floor of the castle, it offers workshops for different ages and target groups. There are open activities for all those interested in the afternoon and on weekends.


Open studio workshop

We invite you to work together in the open studio workshop, where you can actively experiment with artistic working methods that refer to selected works from the current exhibition.
We will look at these works together in advance in the exhibition.

all ages

Dialogical guided tour with workshop afterwards

The programme on Saturday is suitable for the whole family: After we welcome you, there will be an entertaining tour through the exhibition, where you can talk in a relaxed atmosphere about the works on display and your children or grandchildren will be addressed. After a short break, the art workshop opens its doors to all young and old who want to create something with their hands and try it out creatively. Parents and grandparents are also welcome to take another look at the exhibition during this time.

Before – Behind

Dialogical Guided Tour                                

The Berlin Wall fell 30 years ago. For 28 years it had divided the city and the people who lived there into two halves. How were interpersonal and interstate aspects of this border shown, strained and overcome by artistic means?
In front of the artworks in the exhibition, we talk about them and take a critical look at the walls of today and at the people who live with them.

with Fenia Franz

Saturdays, 02:00-03:00 p.m.
Dates: 02.11. / 09.11. / 16.11. / 23.11. / 30.11. / 07.12. / 14.12.2019 // 11.01. / 18.01. / 25.01. / 01.02.2020


Wall Tattoos

Workshop for all ages

Walls, walls, facades of architectural spaces in the city – these surfaces are often painted, sprayed and glued. We are inspired by artists who did this before and immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
What would you paint on a wall to immortalize yourself? What message do you yourself have to the outside world?
In our studio workshop we develop motifs that we don't bring to the walls of the city, but in the form of removable tattoos on our own skin – which can itself be a facade and a boundary. What hides and what limits it?

Saturday, 03:30-05:30 p.m.
Dates: 02.11. / 09.11. /  23.11. / 30.11. / 07.12. / 14.12.2019 // 11.01. / 18.01. / 25.01. / 01.02.2020


Wall painting workshop

for children 10 years and older

Say your own opinion, leave a trace, reach other people and move with art in public, visible to all – do you think that's good?
Together we will look at how the artists made their contribution to the Berlin Wall and create their own motifs and statements. We think about how and where our messages, created and sprayed with stencils and stickers, would take on a life of their own.

Wednesdays, 03:30-05:30 p.m.
Dates: 06.11. / 20.11. / 04.12. / 18.12.2019 // 08.01. / 22.01. / 12.02. / 19.02.2020
