MigrArte is a series of participative art works, designed in collaboration with the organisation MaMis en Moviemento, Rocio Vasquez and Sonia Peters. In this framework, works of art – installations, photography, drawings, dance – are designed together with children and women with migration background. When language fails us, art bridges. The process includes cooking sessions and trips through art spaces in Berlin, such as Hamburger Bahnhof or Südgelände.

Post It is a participative art work designed for and together with the staff and students of the Hertie School. The two elements of the site specific project (photo 60 X 90 and video) are composed out of hundreds of used post its collected from students and employees of the organisation over a time span of two years. The work was presented as part of the exhibition “Personal Expressions”, curated by Gabriele Brühl and Diana Mirza-Grisco, and the project was supported by the fellows & friends programme of the Hertie Foundation.

Through the Key Hole and Arbeitstisch are two participative art works designed for and together with the community of a house project. The first exhibition is historical and looks back at the past of the building, including press and stories from the time when the house project was occupied and then bought by the people who occupied it, as well as historical and recent photos and installations. The second exhibition explores through photography the connections between the work places of the people living in the house project, by making use of a birds eye view, as a unifying factor.

Location and project partner: Leben und Wohnen im Kiez e.V., Berlin.
