A collaboration of children, adolescents and young adults from the ASB refugee home Alt-Moabit with the KW Institute for Contemporary Art BERLIN e.V.
Questioning which connection could be made between the different locations of the KW and the shelter children, adolescents and young adults from Alt-Moabit and external artists and students have been walking together from one spot to the other exploring locations such as Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden and current exhibitions at KW.
Within artistic processes such as drawing and photography, perceptions and impressions have been collected and archived.
Experiences, images, impressions, feelings and sensations have been thus transformed, stored and developed within individual archival principles. That gave rise to a collection of different media which has been processed by each of the participants within private albums.
These albums have been meant to archive the traces of actions, events and meetings. Each album itself represents a migrating memory and is at the same time a portable museum. This temporality and mobility is a reference to the state of instability and uncertainty in a world of flight and war.
The workshops have been all about the moment and the presence itself.
Parallel to the workshops opportunities for dialogue between the staff and visitors have been created. The workshop participants could, for example, perform the previously visited exhibitions and convey their thoughts to the works within the context of the exhibitions RIGGED of the artist Kate Cooper and SITE VISIT of Ryan Trecartin.
The joint group album as a result of the workshop can be downloaded:
