Strings / audio-visual installation

7-10.06.2018
TopLab: Schillerpromenade 4, 12049

When referring to visual arts, we can build an analogy between the string and the line, because just as the string is the sound source, the line is the source of the image.

Wie könnte man seinen Sonntag schöner verbringen als bei einer gemeinsamen Lesung über Kaffee, gefolgt von einem Einführungsworkshop in die Kunst des ‘Parkours’? Wir werden Matthew D. Lambs Text ‘Misuse of The Monument: The art of parkour and the discursive limits of a disciplinary architecture’ lesen, veröffentlicht im Journal of Urban Cultural Studies, und danach mit Paul vom Metropolis Parkour die Straßen unsicher machen (https://metropolisparkour.com/). Die Stadt spielerisch entdecken, sich körperlichen und mentalen Herausforderungen stellen und lernen mit Hindernissen und Angst umzugehen. Das und mehr macht Parkour aus. Der Workshop ist offen für alle – vorige Erfahrungen sind nicht notwendig!
