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.

on Wednesdays 03:00 p.m. to 05:00 p.m.
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.

Momentum – dialogical guided tour

with Fenia Franz

Longing describes the desire for something, for a state or a time, combined with the feeling of not being able to achieve what is longed for.
But what is the "now"? The present moment is already past as soon as we become aware of it. The immediate present seems to blur inseparably with future and past.
Selected works will be examined that deal with the "now" in the artistic creative process, the capturing and transience of a moment.

Every Saturday 2:00 - 3:00 pm & Wednesday 3:30 - 4:30 pm

Dates: 29.02., 04.03., 07.03., 11.03., 14.03.*, 18.03., 21.03., 25.03., 28.03., 01.04., 04.04., 18.04., 22.04., 02.05., 06.05., 09.05.

* The tour on 14.03. will be in English.


In the here and now – with all senses

Open workshop offer with Fenia Franz

See, hear, touch, taste, smell. With these senses we perceive our surroundings.
In the Labor M workshop we offer you a selection of small artistic experiments that sharpen your senses: We watch time pass by, grope in the dark and play with light. We sniff at the past, find out what a minute tastes like and predict the future.

For all ages, children from 6 years

Every Saturday 3:00 - 5:30 pm
& Wednesday 4:30 - 5:30 pm

Dates: 29.02., 04.03., 07.03., 11.03., 14.03., 18.03., 21.03., 25.03., 28.03., 01.04., 18.04., 22.04., 02.05., 06.05., 09.05.


Onomatopoeia Workshop

with Atsushi Fukunaga

Onomatopoeia is the linguistic imitation of the sounds of our environment. A word that sounds like what it describes. These onomatopoeic terms vary according to region, language and culture. The Japanese artist Atsushi Fukunaga explores this phenomenon and lets children and adults in different countries imitate the sounds of their environment with their own voice.
In each of the four recording sessions of 60 minutes each, the artist explores the sounds around Biesdorf Castle with you. The results will be combined into a sound installation and presented on 10.05. 2020 in Labor M.

In addition to the workshop, Labor M offers a playful exploration of the exhibition Sehnsucht nach dem Jetzt. 

For groups and families with children 8 years and older.
Group size per session up to 5 people.

Registration at:     

Saturday 25.04.2020, from 12:00 to 16:00 o'clock
