Labor M – Art Mediation

Labor M is the art education programme of Schloss Biesdorf, the municipal gallery of the Berlin district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf.

As part of various event formats, we develop approaches to contemporary art for you. We offer guided tours of the exhibitions, workshops and other events for children, adults and families and develop artistic-practical projects for schools.

Videos, digital workshops and materials on the exhibitions can be found in the media library. But there are also offers on site – more on this in the following under "Actions and Workshops".

Accompanying programme to the "Werterauschen | Value Noise" exhibition

WERTERAUSCHEN | VALUE NOISES

Guided tour in English through the exhibition
with Fenia Franz

During the tour of the exhibition, visitors will gain insights into the contexts and backgrounds of selected works of art from the fields of painting, photography, video and installation. The works are used to look at various aspects of values in our society – in the economic, social and technological sense – and to show how they affect our lives and our decision-making possibilities.

Limited number of participants, please register by the day before at the latest.

 

Printing banknotes with solar energy

Open workshop for all ages
with Fenia Franz and Caspar Pauli

In order to fill the cash box of our shop of priceless things, we produce banknotes using the free energy of the sun and the technique of cyanotype. The motif is created by irradiating a light-sensitive paper. What goes on your notes and what are they worth in the end? Visit us in our mobile money printing workshop in the park and join in the production!

Saturday, September 25, 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

"Open Workshop" events are hosted by fluent English speakers and can be run bilingually.
