In this workshop we will experiment all three phases of artistic thinking and use this method to interrogate new ways of engaging with digital spaces. artistic thinking is a contemplative and experience-oriented form of design thinking. It considers intuition and emotion as productive and an essential accompaniment to rational ways of approaching problems. artistic thinking puts intuition and emotion to work, using them to recognise and break with conditioned behaviour patterns. The workshop takes a video and artworks as a starting point: through the de-coding and re-coding of those artworks, we undergo a process of observation and creation. Whether you are a novice or an expert in contemporary art, you will discover also during the process another way of looking at works by Jon Rafman, Francis Picabia, Amalia Ulman or Christo. Using artistic strategies, we experiment with how dissonance can nourish creativity and help in innovation processes. In addition, participants are finally invited to create a prototype of a work of art. In collaboration with design thinking experts, artist and curator, this approach allows them a practical approach that is not only cognitive, but also touches on the emotional and stimulates personal expression.
This workshop is tailor-made for change-makers, project managers, product developers, and art lovers. It is limited to 10 participants and will be conducted in English. You will be supervised by two coaches and two artists, who will provide you with all the material and skills necessary to create your own sketch of an "artwork". To cover part of the organization's cost each participant is invited to make a donation of 40 to 60 EUR to the non-profit association art-werk.
The workshop will be led by Bernard Vienat (curator and director of art-werk), Sebastian Gluschak (innovation consultant, TLGG), Carina Erdmann (artist, UDK), Romain Geiser (Head of Youth Empowerment & Activism, Amnesty International, Switzerland). After you register, we will be in touch to introduce ourselves. Together, we will ensure it is a meaningful and productive experience.
The workshop takes place from 10am to 6pm @ Studiolo Berlin, im Aufbau Haus, Prinzenstrasse 85/C, 10961 Berlin / Germany
