Have fun exploring!
An overview of the WELTSTUDIO
The WELTSTUDIO features three cartographers specially designed for this space. They allow visitors to experience various methods of making maps in a new and creative way, and to critically question those methods. The three cartographers, the weaving cartographer, the body cartographer and the rolling cartographer, focus on your individual and shared connections with Berlin and the world.
How can you map your own global relations? A person-sized map in the form of a human figure encourages creative self-localisation in the world. Out of this come unique maps between the self and the world that depict the creators in their individual relationships, experiences and opinions in a global context. The posters, designed by individuals or in teams, will be displayed in the WELTSTUDIO for all to see.
A large, wooden loom invites WELTSTUDIO visitors to reflect on their geographical and emotional relationship to Berlin. Four questions serve as the starting point for textile maps, with the colouring of each individual thread representing an individual story. All the interwoven answers produce unique, ever-growing woven maps that reveal the diversity of the participants.
