“As one dreams, so one should paint” (Werner Heldt)
Dream, longing, home Berlin and freedom are the themes of the exhibition by artists Werner Heldt and Burkhard Held at the Stiftung Kunstforum Berliner Volksbank.
In the workshop, we would like to concentrate on our own view and ask ourselves how our surroundings can change in the future.
With pen and paper, we will visit the exhibition 100 Years of Held(t)en: Werner Heldt and Burkhard Held and explore the composition of the pictorial worlds, the staging and their stylistic forms of expression. How are pictures constructed? How are people and their surroundings depicted?
We make a spontaneous, spatial sketch on site and let the works of art inspire us. The way there and the street in front of the Kunstforum can also be included.
In the workshop, we take this first draft as a starting point and continue to draw our imaginary space from it in our heads. Future architecture, our own spaces, Berlin and excerpts from the neighborhood are our graphic introduction to the topic.
The near and the far are connected. A window, a view from the inside to the outside, can transport us to another world or reveal layers of history. Starting from this site-specific sketch, we develop our own spatial image. Pencils, markers, wax crayons and other graphic tools are our basis.
This creates a connection between dream and reality, from which an abstract, invented and utopian space can be assembled.
