We dare to do something and suddenly everything is possible. A moment of uncertainty and freedom at the same time, in which nobody knows what will happen next. We want to trace such moments in the workshop REMIX Die große Freiheit in der Kunst (REMIX The Great Freedom in Art). The occasion is the exhibition Aufbrüche. Abbrüche. Umbrüche. Kunst in Ost-Berlin 1985–1995 in the Stiftung Kunstforum Berliner Volksbank. It shows art from the years of reunification by East German artists and how they experienced the time of upheaval. A time that brought confusion and helplessness, but also suddenly offered great freedom and opened up completely new possibilities. After visiting the exhibition, we take all artistic liberties in the workshop. We cut, we glue, we draw, we paint and paint over whatever we can get our hands on. Using catalogues, posters, newspapers, magazines, cardboard, foam rubber and various colours, we combine old with new and foreign with our own, layer by layer. This is how completely free and personal mixed media works of art are created.
