Pictorial staging of urban spaces is the theme of the workshop. The project consists of explorations in the city of Berlin and their translation into graphic images using the printing technique of risography. Different strategies of image making will be explored through experimental design tools. How can manual and technical methods be used to remix new visual expressions and how do they relate to urban reality?

Berlin as a public stage will be the trigger for our design process. Intangible moments shared with one another during field research, will be visually expressed using risography: Specific technical conditions influence the aesthetics in such a way, that the printing process becomes a creative tool in itself.

Our observations will find their way back into the public space as posters. This shows how an architectural scenery can be condensed into a graphic image to become a unique visual expression.
