Every school year, HKW carries out project days with Berlin schools focusing on artistic research. Based on the themes at HKW and in collaboration with artists, the students conduct investigations and process their findings artistically. Afterwards, project days offer the opportunity for exhibitions, presentations, workshops and exchange. An Internet presentation takes experiences from the analog to the digital and documents the results.
The aim is to integrate new knowledge developments into school practice and to enable students to explore the world by means of artistic research. An interdisciplinary approach is pursued that includes artistic disciplines such as architecture, film, and photography.
New Experts! What knowledge of displacement and migration is relevant for young people? An artistic research project is training Berlin students at 12 SESB schools as new experts in the immigration society.
