Fusion-Club/Für morgen

Workshop offerings and exhibition tours for children and teens

At Fusion-Club children and teens use artistic methods to develop and produce participatory and experimental artworks (objects, paintings, prints, textiles) in dialogue with the exhibition. They are assisted by artists who work with glass, paper, textiles, printing, and drawing.

Each week up to sixty children and teens eleven years old and up have the opportunity to develop and produce work in various workshops. Participation in the workshops also provides:

  • individual support in small groups
  • free access to all exhibition venues with moderated tours and discussions with the exhibition team, visitors, artists, and their works
  • the possibility of presenting and selling the works produced and donating proceeds to a freely chosen charitable organization
  • the possibility of an internship
  • a certificate

Free workshop offerings and exhibition tours for children and teens during the week of Monday, July 30 to Friday, August 3, 2018:

Fusing glass with heat is an age-old technique that can be used to create a plate of glass out of colorful glass slides.

Produced is a colorful artwork that participants can pick up the next day.

Rula Ali
I came to Germany as a Syrian artist with a background in sculpture. When I arrived, I did not have a job or the right tools to create sculptures but was impressed by the different fabrics and the textile art scene in Germany. So I started exploring textile art. During my three years of living in Germany, I’ve used different textiles as material in order to express my ideas through installation, video, or painting, etc. I’ve taken part in various exhibitions and have conducted a number of textile workshops on various techniques including dyeing, stamping, patching, and art with textiles.

Berlin glass
Berlin Glas e. V. is a non-profit association that offers both German and international professional artists, students as well as children and teens the opportunity to work in Berlin with heated glass.

Anna-Lea Hebeisen
I’m Anna-Lea Hebeisen, a twenty-seven-year-old studying fashion design. I come from Switzerland, where I trained as a primary school teacher and worked for two years in classrooms and kindergarten.

Karoline Beeck
Karoline Beeck was born in Berlin in 1985. She lives and works in Weißensee with her three children. She studied at the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, and the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin, where she received her diploma and was master student under Else Gabriel. As a conceptual artist, Karoline Beeck works in a variety of media.

Julie Peter
Julie Peter, born in 1985, is a Danish artist living in Berlin. Her work explores the absurd using ordinary objects, ambiences, and spaces, whose ironic distance serves as a dreamy commentary on the norms of daily life. The work focuses on the binaries we create between the self and the other, between our own “primitive” self and our “educated” self. She finds that the opposites of belief and behavior reveal an implicit weirdness, a humor that reflects our own vulnerabilities.

Marlon Denzel van Rooyen
Marlon Denzel van Rooyen was born in 1995 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He currently lives and pursues his art practice in Berlin, Germany. In his work, he explores the history and legacy of colonialism through educational and artistic formats. He is one of the project coordinators of the Colonial Neighbours Archive, which forms part of the permanent collection of SAVVY Contemporary Berlin.
