MUSEUM OSTWALL - (Level 4 + 5)


Art workshop: Big steps and a hand's breadth - my body as a measure // Workshop
How does our body relate to space? Works of art from the Museum Ostwall's collection presentation "Body & Soul. Thinking, Feeling, Brushing Teeth" deal with this question in different ways: Sometimes people's bodies are quite compact and clearly demarcate themselves from the surrounding space, sometimes the posture is expansive. In the exhibition we make experiments with our own body and try out to grasp the space with steps, our hand span and our body size. In the KunstAktionsRaum we will create our own artwork for body-space-measurement.
