The tiger has now been in Berlin for many years. He loves currywurst, has got used to the gray weather, and found new friends. However, he is still constantly asked: Where do you actually come from? Is your fur real? Are you dangerous? Can I stroke you?

A lot of people are frightened of him, others find him elegant or somehow interesting. Either way he is always seen as being different, even though he has long since found a new home in Berlin. He has begun to ask himself who he actually is. In search of compatriots he has heard of a place with 2 or 3, or even more tigers, and heads off straight away to meet them.

In the workshop participants will explore the figure of the tiger between fantasy and projection. With a sketchbook and an introduction to exciting artistic techniques you will draw your own tiger picture.

On May 21, these will form part of a board game on the tiger’s travels and stories. At the end every participant will receive a game to take home with them.

On June 11, these will form part of a cutout animation film on the tiger’s travels and stories. At the end every participant will receive a copy of the film.

Workshop leaders:

Tuna Arkun

The workshops are oriented on bi'bak’s ongoing project series The tiger is coming… .
