3rd Berlin summer artworkshop 2018

Zuse Meyer 3rd Art Workshop in Berlin Doing Art with the Artist
2018 September 7th /8th

Zuse Meyer, internationally active, German artist and poet, with teaching experiences at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tongji University Shanghai and Tainan National University of the Arts, is holding the 3rd summer workshop in Berlin.

Everybody is aware and sensitive to a certain extent.
This workshop is about getting in touch with yourself – your perception / feelings/ thoughts – in order to expand and deepen your awareness – thus your creativity.

This two-day-journey through Berlin is a journey towards your inner self. No matter how complex and strong the stimulations from the outer world might be – the center of awareness can only be IN YOURSELF. You are the center/ the starting point of all your creations.
Art is not about perceiving or doing something in a general way – there is no standard, no measure to be fulfilled. Art is about getting in touch with your feelings, your intelligence and your sensitivity. Your most valuable creations are the creations that only YOU can do – nobody else can express what only you can express – your own precious world.
Create your own magnificent journey during two days in Berlin.

Information über den Workshop
A three-day-intensive Art Workshop of Zuse Meyer
Zuse Meyerによるカノービオの三日間の集中アートワークショップ2018 (日本語は最後をご覧ください)
One of the most gorgeous secret spots of European civilization ‒ the shore of the Lake Maggiore at the southern edge of the Alps ‒ here, the small town of Cannobio, founded by the Romans around 2000 years before.
The splendor of the lake, the huge blue sky and the lush green mountains, their reflections on the water, silent gardens, architecture full of history ‒ the affluent beauty of the Lake Maggiore has attracted and inspired an illustrious number of European artists for centuries, among them the German writer Hermann Hesse*.
The goal of the workshop will be to raise awareness and sensitivity towards the surroundings and towards our feelings and personal ways of perception. “The joy of life, is the joy of being conscious”. Spending three days within the relaxing, soft atmosphere of the lake, being stimulated by a totally fresh environment and infinite forms of beauty, we can open ourselves in new, joyful and creative ways. The exquisite preciousness of the hours will be deepened and expressed through the multiple creative approaches.
