SOUVENIRS OF CHINA

Two weeks excursion with students in China.

Again a time change, a physical but also a cultural one. A “Lapse in Time” in definite. Within one day we plunged into a new world of images,noice and smell. 

I organized a one week workshop project “Souvenirs of China” with 45 students from Germany and China searching for a new way of souvenir interpretation with less stereotypes, and kitschy repetitions. By mixing the diversified ethnics we reached more complexity and polarisation in communication and execution. Both factors led to controversial results and raised the “limit of pain”.
