Berlin Oberschöneweide –
An Artistic Search

A school project supported by the Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung
05. – 07.10.2020

Berlin, 1945–2000: A Photographic Subject, an exhibition sponsored by the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen, presents diverse photographic positions that underscore the social, political, and cultural changes that Berlin underwent over the course of 55 years. This overview of the city is the starting point for the workshop Berlin Oberschöneweide – An Artistic Search.

The diverse history of Oberschöneweide, a former industrial area, and the experience of place can stimulate one’s interest and imagination. In search of motives that correspond to those presented by the exhibition, the students will look for characters, images, and stories that surround them in their everyday lives.

Whether in exchange with one another or the things found on site, the students will develop their own stories and put them on paper using different materials and techniques, including frottage, collage, drawing, photographing, and printing. The resulting works will be presented on the first floor of the Reinbeckhallen’s exhibition hall.

Supervision | Ulrike Koloska (art historian and freelance artist, expert for graphic and book art) and
Angelika Ludwig (freelance artist, specialized in painting and graphic print)
