Location: Kunstschule Krabax, Sierichstraße 124, 22299. Hamburg

The workshop will take form of dialogue and interactive exchange between the participants and will be in English. The workshop is a convocation of work of ideas, doubts, desires, and the question of words, as well the new images which appear and which question us. Expose yourself is a kind of invitation to reinvent yourself into the other.

To respond to this convocation, participants must have a contemporary awareness such as; migration and immigration, to associate and put all these parameters in the service of construction, and savor the beauty of meetings.
