bi’bak invites the Mobile Language Lab (Julia Kapelle) with the project TRICKMISCH.
The Mobile Language Lab is constantly on the move with its project TRICKMISCH: with trick tables, film-editing equipment, a mini-recording studio and a suitcase full of cut out silhouette figures, all sorts of stories have been cut and animated since 2014, together with refugee students from welcoming classes. The children and adolescents who are new in Germany and learn German invite us with their imaginative cartoon films into a surreal world of images. TRICKMISCH makes the process of learning German an active, joyful and self-directed experience. With each new film the picture dictionary is growing. On the website it is possible to create new animated films online.
The project TRICKMISCH was funded by the Berlin Projects Funds for Cultural Education.
