Labor M – Art Communication

+++ The following online workshop was created in the context of the exhibition "Longing for the Now" +++



DIGITAL WORKSHOP "Im Jetzt geht was!" 

The workshop "Im Jetzt geht was!" contains suggestions, questions and exercise suggestions for the artistic examination of the topic "time" and the experience of the present moment. It is available in videos or as a text document. No account on Youtube or Dropbox is required to use or download the materials.

In German only.

The offer is aimed at children from about 8 years of age and adults who enjoy the topic. It can be used privately alone or as a group, or as a stimulus for artistic distance learning.

It presents exemplary works of art from the exhibition "Longing for the Now", which deal with various temporal phenomena and the "now" in the artistic creative process.

For this purpose we use working materials, image and sound recordings that have been produced for the workshop format for school classes (secondary level I). The examples from the exhibition serve as impulses for practical experiments and perception games.

The use of the material is free of charge like all offers of Labor M / Schloss Biesdorf.

Dialogical guided tour

The dream of home autonomy versus neighbourly togetherness. What wishes, needs and conflicts does life in the suburban housing estate entail?

Show houses - on model

Open workshop offer for all age groups

Build a house, but how? Many construction companies offer prefabricated houses that can be built quickly and easily. But how do you think about how such a house can also work well for the people who are supposed to live in it? For example, how many rooms do you need and how much space per person?

How many floors can you actually stack on top of each other and what shape will the roof take?

From simple wooden elements we develop our own small show house!

With Fenia Franz

Saturdays 03:00 - 05:30 p.m.
Dates: 29.08., 05.09., 12.09., 19.09., 26.09., 03.10.2020



Show houses - on the screen

Workshop for adults and children from 12 years

Planning, building and furnishing rooms is not only exciting on a model or drawing board, but has also become the entertaining content of many computer and video games. In this workshop we use a digital simulation game to build, furnish and even animate houses.

Dates: 02.09., 09.09., 16.09., 23.09., 30.09., 07.09.2020
