About the Workshop

How does the political and social context you live in influence your relation to yourself and the world? Would you sometimes wonder about your identity?

In the exhibition „In Multiplicity“, currently on display at the Gallery Under the Mango Tree, the Jamaican/German artist – Barbara Walker shares profound stories of migration, social history, identity, body and self awareness . While the exhibition invites viewers to introspect and explore the complexities of histories while navigating the past and present, it also hints that the future depends on how we interact with the present.

Experimenting with deep information channels that include Meditation, observing, intuition, imagination and body memory as vitals to creating one’s own path, “Moving perspectives “ is an interactive workshop conducted by Lavia Lin ( artist ) and Elsa Rousson ( dancer) inviting participants to explore those themes through unique dance and painting interaction that delves into identity, acceptance, positivity, and the appreciation of one’s own personal history.

Through creative exploration, you will engage in a dialogue with Walker’s artworks, merging movements with colors to ignite the light within yourself. This workshop is a way to enhance the possibility to understand ourselves and appreciate the presence of the other, our intertwining personal and political narratives, and experiencing the story of art.
