In the south, in Playa Blanca, we examine today with a group of artists learners the relationship between art and culture. On a highly visible area, we are looking for traces of the recent past and we are witnesses of lying prostrate culture. The abandoned, resting after construction areas carry big names but the whole area is deserted, empty and desolate.
Also with this workshop we will continue the cooperation with the Lanzarote besed organisation LAPAS in Haría.
We will visit people and organisations that have the aim in their personal life or a social aim to live sustainable. We will visit hereby Zonzamas, the garbage incineration plant in the middle of the island, located in an old vulcano, formerly used as a sacred place….imagine this!!!
We will make interviews with different kind of people, asking them what kind of possibilities they see living sustainable.
Like in the workshop “TRACES OF YOUR CULTURE” we are planning to meet with different learner groups one day in the week over several weeks, making videos, audio recordings, drawings,…. and merging the results in the end during an exhibition or any other form of presentation. The workshop will be supported by the local BIOSHERE RESERVE.
Target group are people of all ages living on the island Lanzarote as well as people coming from abroad with an interest of sustainable living.
Berlin really changed a lot. Having seen burning cars all over Oranienstraße some years ago, accompanied by demonstrants throwing stones, demonstrating against right power, struggling for equality and fighting against the police all around you now can find a big street festival with a variation of different styles of music, from Techno to Old School Rock and indian vibes.
Brave new Berlin
Jose Farray is not only a great photographer but also a good cartographer. With three other colleagues, he crosses regularly and systematically the “mal país” in the north of the island, photographing and cartographing old tracks, finding objects and assignim them to the map via GPS.
We were fortunate that he took us on the trail.
In the workshop “TRACES OF YOUR CULTURE” we searching for answers to the question, which characters can be read out from the traces of our culture for us today. What interpretations do we get regarding these traces because of half-knowledge or lack of knowledge and how can we use the results for us today. We will work with means of the arts, making drawings and sketches, videographic explorations and photographic investigations.
The questions should lead us in the best case to creative results ….with performances, short films, through dance or installation ……
