bi'baxchange aims to showcase cross-border collaborations with cultural actors, project spaces and initiatives. Based on interdisciplinary and transnational cooperation projects, bi'baxchange seeks to exchange ideas, perspectives and know-how. In lecture performances, pop-up exhibitions, readings and presentations, bi'baxchange focuses on the decentralized, rhizomic connection between art, design, academics, participation, urban space and local activism.
The Berlin team from "Trickmisch - das mobile Sprachlabor" made a digital stopover in Malaysia and organized a film competition. In this student project, students from 12 Malaysian secondary schools created their own cartoons by creating their own silhouettes and articulated figures, animating them using the stop-trick technique and then setting their texts to music themselves.
The project drew on old Malaysian traditions in form and content: on the one hand, the students illustrated and told the content of old Malaysian fairy tales. On the other hand, the form of the silhouettes is closely related to the old Malaysian narrative form - the shadow theater wayang kulit.
We are pleased that the project is our guest with a presentation.
