Whether with or without prior knowledge: Everyone finds a place in the Open Workshop! We take the Bauhäuslers and their interest in experimentation as a model for our own work in the workshop. For the Bauhäuslers, experimentation with techniques and materials was a basic prerequisite for creation. We would like to take up this idea and print our own typefaces, develop letters and collages, build masks and shoot stop-motion animations. There are no limits to the imagination! Participants will be accompanied by artists, designers and art educators.

Did you know that in Chile an entire desert is being used as a garbage dump for clothes? The Atacama Desert clearly shows what is in store for us if we continue to consume and consume in the current way. In the Open Workshop we want to find solutions for this problem. Especially in times of climate crisis we need alternatives. Together we will make new things out of old textiles and return them to the material cycle.
Hygiene education – advertising strategies
8 + 15 + 22 + 29 June and 6 + 13 July
In our workshop, 35mm films, including industrial and commercial films, film trailers, and short films will be misappropriated. The film strips are re-mounted with a cutting device and processed by hand with pens, brushes, spatulas, scissors as well as adhesive pictures. In this way, a new, creative, abstract short film with advertising images and slogans on the subject of hygiene is created in the workshops. The result is digitized and later made available online to the participants.
Vegan, Vegetarian, Flexitarian

Who am I and what do I eat? We will collect recipes and find a new form for a personal cookbook. In the workshops in August and September, among other things, we will make experiments with light and color, see what looks really delicious, cook a soup together and think up our own recipes.
26 Oct and 2 + 9 + 16 + 23 + 30 Nov
Small and large investigations in the Open Workshop provide insights into the world of water as an invaluable elixir of life. We engage in exercises on the perception and effect of water. Light reflections, transparency, reflections and optical illusions play a role. We smell and taste water in its various forms, dye T-shirts, make inks, boil down natural materials and blot them onto different types of paper. All with the tool water!
