The Earth Beneath
Sun July 31, 1pm – 5pm
Sun August 7, 11am – 3pm
Why is Berlin so flat? Why are there mountains? Why are there earthquakes? What are volcanoes made of?
We want to talk about where the landscape around us came from and how geology shapes our everyday lives. We work with sand, clay, rocks, water as well as clay and various media to delve deep into the history of the local landscape.
Artist and designer Cam-Anh Luong and researcher in Triassic Vertebrate Paleontology and Evolutionary Science Roland Sookias present a workshop on geology and landscape design.
The second part of the workshop we work with VR:
VR – Virtual Reality is a computer-generated reality with a 3D image.
Erde-Workshops take place on Sundays at Strandbad Tegelsee /Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung. Participation in the workshops is free of charge, registration is not required. The workshops are led by the members of Moabit Mountain College and focus on artistic practice in connection with ecology and sustainability. Strandbad Tegelsee us serves as a very special open-air laboratory.
Erde Workshopis is a part of the two-year collaborative project Artistic Ecologies: New Compasses, Tools and Alliances conceived in collaboration with WHW, Zagreb, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, and Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, Berlin.
