The skin is the membrane that separates and protects the human body from the outside world. However, as the utmost organ it is way more than just a barrier against environmental influences: through it, humans are in contact with their environment and can perceive their surroundings. The students experience the skin as a multi-layered phenomenon: As a living archive that saves experiences and retains traces of history; as a medium of resilience and resistance; as a fluid border through which living beings constantly interact with their surroundings. If someone feels ‘thin-skinned’, reacts to something with ‘goosebumps’, or has ‘a thick skin’human skin´, as well as skin of other living beings and plants serves as inspiration for practices of care, resilience, and resistance that can be examined by artistic means, that is, by way of drawing, photography, filming, and experiments with sound and imagery.
