Closing Event “Café Größenwahn”

With artistic interventions by guest artist Goezde Ilkin

Fri, 11 October, 15.30-19h

Gözde Ilkin (Istanbul) was a guest in the moving room in October 2019. Based on her artistic practice, she organized a workshop for children and young people during her stay as part of the “Aktionsraum Café Größenwahn”.

On the occasion of the closing event of the “Aktionsraum Café Größenwahn” she will show her own artistic interventions as well as collaborations with participating children and young people.


From the workshop description:

“I work with plants and collect second-hand fabrics from each visited country. The plants as a gardener and fabrics as a memory object help me to discover the geography and culture or a landscape.

During the workshop trees are main characters that we can  inspire by their communication patterns and behaviour. We ask some question about co-existence, collective living and working practices, inspired by characters and strategies of trees. We will try to create an experimental landscape by watching the trees as a home or  a geography. In three days,   we  can take some notes and sketches together about their form, colour, depict the characters of the trees” (Goezde Ilkin)
