During a workshop participants make multiple curiosities – small, conceptual projects – centred around a specific (desired) topic. A range of short assignments (pressure-cooker format) help them in questioning the topic, and finding new interpretations.

在工作坊期间,参与者将利用自己的好奇心创作很多的作品——从一个特定的主题延展的概念性的小项目。在强压下创作出一系列作品的方式,让他们可以提出很多与主题相关的问题,并找到新的传达方式。

工作坊的过程

At the first day of this workshop the students rediscovered a street they know very well: the street opposite of the university. They used various recording devices to document the things they discovered, this was the starting point for their first curiosity.

Day 2 till 4 of the workshop where filled with presenting, discussing and making curiosities (small projects inspired by the street and each other).

On the 5th and final day of the workshop the students worked on the exhibition and looked critically at how to present their work in the best suitable way.

It was great to work with the enthusiastic and diligent students!

工作坊的第一天,同学们重新探索了一条他们熟悉的街道,这条街就在学校对面。他们用了很多方法去记录他们的发现,这是第一个与“好奇”相关的项目的起点。

第二天直到第四天,由街道或同学之间互相启发的小创作继续进行,同时我们也进行了展示和讨论。

第五天,也是工作坊的最后一天,同学们主要忙于布展,并运用批判性思维完善展示的方式,直到以最适合的方式呈现。

与热情又勤奋的同学们一起努力的感觉真棒!
