The targeted place for our intervention will be Berlin Central Station, where we will exhibit the created works at the end of the workshop.

Berlin Central Station is a busy intersection of everyday life routine and tourist attraction, a conglomerate of private and public transportation, a blend of different social and political circles and bears witness of its own past and present. We will explore this pulsating crossroads above- and underground, for each participant to find an approach.

In this workshop participants will approach their project with the use of the medium sound and gain a deeper understanding of public space and art therein. You will have the opportunity of getting artistic experience in open-minded surroundings with international participants from various backgrounds.

Target group

Various artistic approaches are welcome, nonetheless, you are expected to have basic knowledge and skills with the chosen equipment and material to realize your project. E.g., if you want to work with field recording, you need to have basic knowledge of the equipment and be able to carry out the recording, edit, and arrange the sound on your own. Some equipment can be provided by the university, however, bringing your own material/equipment will definitely benefit you.
