Cities today are another nature. Their phenomena, countless that disrespect human and non-human life, have become landscapes of oppression and fatigue. It is on the basis of the structural and repetitive concealment and naturalization of urban, environmental and human problems that capital management does not solve them, only worsen them. To see and make see this strange urban nature is to open space for necessary debates, which lead to possible solutions. How can the body tell stories that no one sees? How does the camera capture this story of a body that transmutes itself into a landscape? We will have a meeting where plants that break through the asphalt will remind us that it is necessary to be stubborn.

The workshops with Uyra on 23 and 30 October are closely linked.

In collective practice, make-up, photo-performance and the creative process will be linked in preparation for a collective performative presentation at Kulturhaus Brotfabrik on 6 October as part of the Clichê Trash Festival.

Accordingly, it is a prerequisite for participation to be willing to attend both workshops. The workshops are open to everyone! It is important to bring your own participatory and collective spirit and a desire to reflect on your own privileges.

Limited number of participants, please register at
