At Fusion-Club children and teens use artistic methods to develop and produce participatory and experimental artworks (objects, paintings, prints, textiles) in dialogue with the exhibition. They are assisted by artists who work with glass, paper, textiles, printing, and drawing.

Each week up to sixty children and teens eleven years old and up have the opportunity to develop and produce work in various workshops. Participation in the workshops also provides:
– individual support in small groups
– free access to all exhibition venues with moderated tours and discussions with the exhibition team, visitors, artists, and their works
– the possibility of presenting and selling the works produced and donating proceeds to a freely chosen charitable organization
– the possibility of an internship
– a certificate

Please register for the workshops three days in advance at fusion-club@berlinbiennale.de or by phone at +49 30 24 34 59-984. Please indicate the age of the participant when registering.

THURSDAY, 9.8.2018

Print Workshop with Karoline Beeck
We’ll examine the ideas behind the title of the 10th Berlin Biennale: We don’t need another hero. What does this title mean: who do you think is a hero or heroine? We’ll use this theme to experiment with various printing techniques including linocut, monotype, screen printing, and drawing.

Glass Workshop with the team from Berlin Glas e. V.
Fusing glass with heat is an age-old technique that can be used to create a plate of glass out of colorful glass slides. Inspired by works from the exhibition we’ll produce a colorful artwork!

Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg 10, 10557 Berlin, meeting point Ausstellungscounter

Textile Workshop with Anna Lea Hebeisen
In our Textile Workshop we’ll show you how to bring an old T-shirt back to life. Using a sewing machine, needle, brush or steam, you’ll create your new favorite clothing item that only you own. The 10th Berlin Biennale exhibition will serve as our source of inspiration for ideas.
