Form Follows Aktion

25 - 30 July 2017 ZK/U

On the site of the ZK/U, we have defined 4 project locations. The guiding objective is to reflect on the interactions between the building and the municipal park, and to propose new definitions for the internal / external relations that result from it.

Guided by different workshops, you will create structures, or installations, which should be considered as a “parasite» –an experimental, temporarily new kind of usage.

On each site, the work will be done by a team of 10 people (5 French and 5 Germans), with three main objectives: designing, building and running a project. We will propose ideas for using the spaces, but you are free to interpret the context and develop your creativity!

The idea behind is also to be able to test many possibilities of parasites (para-sites) installed at the ZK/U. As you will discover, the configuration of the building and park has a number of qualities, and unexplored potentials, which we want to find new answers for.

APPLY UNTIL 10th of July
