Many of us find ourselves contemplating an environment (political, social, environmental), that is undergoing radical change. In this four day workshop, we will form a research lab together, bringing our own fears, wishes, ideas and hopes to explore radical and revolutionary ideas from the fringes of alternative thinking. Through discussions, excursions around the city and sessions of different practical exploratory thinking and doing, we will explore the application of these ideas in a society that could come during our lifetimes.
This workshop is presented in cooperation with the Studium Generale at the University of the Arts. This means the course will be open to students of the University. Thus the workshop-group is a mixture of regular students and international participants.
The British artists Sophia New and Daniel Belasco Rogers have been based in Berlin since 2001 and working together under the name plan b since 2002. Their work crosses the boundaries between visual art, new media, performance, installation, and socially engaged practice. It has been shown in festivals, exhibitions, theatres and on the streets of many different cities. They consider what they do to be site specific and relationship specific. Alongside participatory and performative projects they also have developed strategies to share their practice in educational contexts on a number of different courses in Germany and abroad.
