Summerworkshop

"Searching for traces", 6 - 10 July 2020
at the Visual Art School Basel, Münchenstein - www.visualartschool.ch

  • What are traces? Where do they come from?
  • What type of traces exist?
  • How do they change the inside and the outside?
  • How do hidden or forgotten traces come to the surface again?
  • What quality is behind which trace?
  • What force/power/energy/strength is involved in creating a trace?

We go on a journey in search for answers by drawing and painting with the aim of finding our own expressiveness in the reduction.

The driving force behind this process is as important as the trace

itself. For this we experiment primarily with ink, watercolor, collage and, in addition to the usual brushes, we also use the traces of nature (woods, panicles, etc.) to create new traces.

 

Depending on the interest and the (remaining) time, we will recycle old

traces (used paper) and create our own paper.
