Picturing Encounters 2020 Art Show

The vernissage of our exhibition ‘Picturing Encounters’ took place on September 17th 2020. It was a pleasant evening during which visitors were able to enjoy the works of our artists.

The works presented are the result of a 3-weeklong intense collaborative process, during which storytellers and illustrators worked together to create an illustrated story. In the exhibition you will be able to appreciate the illustrations, read the stories and hear the stories told in the storytellers’ own voice. In short, it’s definitely worth a visit!

A special thanks and congratulations goes out to all the workshop participants.

Storytellers: Tabea Magura, Thomas Klein, Judith Ahues, Judith Albrecht
Illustrators: Marco Klein, Eric Fu-Tso Juan, Tahmine Ranjbar Soleymani, Evelin Piñeros

Medienwerkstatt Encounters invites you to our Facebook Watch Party: “Kiezstories”, focusing on the topic “back to the street”, or: “which impact has Corona made in our neighbourhoods?”

2 groups set out on a search – the result are two short films which portray how places in Berlin have changed since the lockdown.

After the screening there will be an opportunity for a Q&A with the filmmakers.
