More than ever before, our world is defined by mobility. But who is allowed to travel and who is not is unequally regulated - by visas, passports, entry regulations and much more. Furthermore, completely different rules apply to goods moving in global trade networks. For this Trickmisch workshop we invite children and parents to spend a Saturday afternoon describing different forms of being on the move and to illustrate these via short, animated films on a light table. Two sources of inspiration will help you find word material for your animated films: snake poems á la Meret Oppenheim and absurd word combinations like the surrealists. These texts will then be brought to life as animated film stories. 

Julia Kapelle studied film and photography (visual communication) at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg and the UdK at the Institute for Art in Context. In her artistic work she deals with media image production and processes of collective authorship. 

Since 2014, Trickmisch has been working with refugee students from welcome classes to cut and animate all kinds of stories using trick tables, film editing stations, a mini recording studio, and a suitcase full of silhouette figures.
