Let’s explore unusual perspectives: let’s observe and experience bodies differently from the way we do in everyday life. What do our bodies have that fascinate us? What generates tension or unfamiliarness? Where is there variety? Human bodies are often represented in an idealised form. And the participants of this workshop will seek out new points of view. Artistic languages involve a variety of different levels. Drawing, sculptural design, modelling, material experiments or actions: How does an artistic method change our perception? What does it make possible?

Participants will have the option to work individually or with others to design something physical. These physical things can serve as inspiration for independent objects. This new level will thus open up the possibility for sculptural work in the form of large spatial sculptures. The workshop will become a test lab where things can be tried out, practised and negotiated. In addition to building up confidence in this subject area, it will impart relevant practical knowledge of artistic methods. Having and interest in artistic work and the desire to experiment are prerequisites for attending the workshop. No prior artistic knowledge is necessary. This workshop is designed for experts from schools, social work, therapy and psychosocial practices as well as people with interest and an open mind.

Workshop participants will: explore new artistic methods; learn more about how to apply the methods; forge new connections and practise intermedia; make the most of the process of working collectively; get acquainted with new materials; acquire more knowledge of artistic works, and of spatial design and perception; and experience process-oriented learning.
