bi’bakwerk #05


In the workshop “ANGELS” we deal with heavenly creatures. With the children we will visit the Bode Museum and look at and draw Angel pictures and sculptures. The drawings are then gradually abstracted from the children and transferred to stencils. The angels of the children are sprayed with water-soluble colour on walls, advertising pillars, on the floor, on lampposts in their own neighbourhood.

The children catapult the figures in this way from the museum context into the middle of the reality of their Berliner district Wedding. The heavenly creatures, which are taken from their pedestal, start their own life on the road and share a piece of their luster with all who have eyes to notice them. The transience and fragility of these heavenly beings is demonstrated by the fact that the colour fades and is washed away by the rain.
