Invisible: beyond the plinths

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Artefacts can be cultural geographies if explored through the invisible technical, cultural, social, and geopolitical systems behind their existence. Preserved by museums, artefacts from different cultures, places, and time periods. Made of different materials and techniques, artefacts are starting points to understand our global history. And, most importantly, to critically question some urgent aspects of our shared reality.

Question, Reframe, Expose, Repeat

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Stories are attached to made objects through aesthetics, functionality, craftsmanship and heritage. Designed to reinforce cultural and political narratives, they are produced to carry meaning just as much as purpose. In this workshop, using a range of research and investigation techniques, we will take a critical look at the objects in the Museum’s collection and explore ways in which they can be employed for understanding and addressing the urgencies of today.

Casting Journeys ///fully booked///

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Where do metals come from? Are they the result of a bombardment of meteorites, added to our planet by lucky coincidence? How did the journeys of metals as traded goods change over time? And as we are facing a planetary exhaustion of resources, how will we source, displace, and use metals in the future?

TOY CORNERS

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

When children play, they introduce content into the context: their surroundings take on symbolic value. The meaning associated with the place depends on the players’ actions. Playgrounds should be sequences of open stimuli that accompany the movements of families and to which children give meaning, either on their own or in a horizontal interaction with one another and with adults.

The Museum as a Festival

Workshop

School

Location:

Design Campus Dresden

Festivals are spaces of collective experimentation. New dimensions are created by ephemeral projects that incubate moods and forms of sensibility that last beyond the time of the event. During the workshop, The Museum as a Festival’, participants will explore the interlace of musical, artistic, and environmental aspects to contemplate the present and the future in an innovative way. The purpose is to create a space where an event, limited in time, could have the potential to transform temporary works of art in durable and meaningful representations. This would change the perspective of the museum experience from a static interaction to a more dynamic exchange.
