What do the houses look like? Do they stand on the ground or hang in the air? How much space do you need to play? Are there any cars left? Do we ride a cable car or fly?
In a shop-window exhibition at the KinderKünsteZentrum, children show their ideas for living in the city of the future: In the workshop of the artist Simone Schander, urban installations made of cardboard and fabric were created as well as stories in which children record their ideas, needs and wishes for a future living together in their city.
Together with the sculptor Tine Steen, daycare center children examined various building materials such as clay, plastic, and fabric. They developed models and objects, tested old handicraft techniques from house construction and learned how the boundaries between city and nature can be dissolved.
The workshop by artist Björn Heyn invited them to explore cities and their appearance: How does a city in the mountains differ from a city under water? What are the possible and desirable ways of getting around within the city? The children designed and built futuristic vehicles out of cardboard, wood and other materials.
All objects and works will conquer the shop windows in the neighborhood around the KinderKünsteZentrum
in the next few days and can be seen there until mid-December!
