Neue Geschichten – Neue Welten

Within the framework of Neue Geschichten – Neue Welten (New Stories—New Worlds), artist Alexia Manzano and mediator Katja Ullmann develop new vocabularies with preschool and elementary school children, inspired by their engagement with the artworks in the 10th Berlin Biennale, and use this as a basis for encouraging the children to create their own narrative accounts of the world. The exhibition spaces, the building, and the route leading to the exhibition from the participating nursery school Kleine Auguststraße and Gustav Falke elementary school are explored. Trust is carefully established between the project participants, the exhibiting artists, and the team of the biennial. The children examine the works of the 10th Berlin Biennale and respond artistically to their perceptions, experiences, and impressions. Aesthetic research approaches—adapted to the early childhood realm—form the basis of the conditions, materials, and methods provided to the children. All processes are to be developed based on the children’s ideas. A large-format publication produced with the children presents their visual and tactile impulses and ideas.

The event will be held in German.
