Before opening of exhibition, in our office, we had a lot of
workshop with children. It was twice a week. We provide also pizza, drinks and snacks for children, to make them fully motivated. The aim of the workshop is to collect information about ‘local people about construction of new bridge’ and also collecting students’ own ideas about new bridge. In all workshops, they were happy and I think they are all great team-players.
I could not attend all of the workshops because of my German course or I attend late. Children divided into groups, we prepared microphone and recording devices for them, and they made a lot of interviews about ‘new bridge ideas for Landsberg’ with local people. The other groups stayed in the office and talked each other or played games.
Sometimes the weather was not good, sometimes it was sunny, some of the students were quite shy, some of them were brave to make interview but they are all motivated and happy in all conditions. After they completed all of the interviews, they prepared their own ideas for new bridge. They painted it on a papers that we gave, and took a little notes. The ideas of the children were too creative and some of them were really logical that made me surprised. We collected all of these paintings to prepare them for our exhibition. With all children we took a photo and distributed our exhibition’s poster to the shops in Landsberg. I helped some children to write information of their paintings in German language.
I found that the students are all great team- member and they have logical opinions about everything. Also they are all friendly and funny, sometimes they made us tired but it is normal. I had a good relationship with the students, I tried to speak with them mostly in German but when we stuck, they all have good English knowledge, we spoke in English. It improved me a lot also the pizzas were delicious.

Between 20 December 2019 and 7 January 2020, there was an exhibition in Landsberg which is created by dieKunstBauStelle e.V. , named ‘Landsberg Stories’. The idea is Wolfgang Hauck’s and as a volunteers, we helped him for preparation and for other works. We ordered fences and decorate the inside hall like ‘labyrinth’ in order to make the exhibition more attractive.
It was difficult, when we placed the fence to the top of the hall but it worth. We, ‘the four volunteer’ shared the days and stay in exhibition. I stayed for 4 days and in my days there were less people, because of the holiday and cold weather, so it is sad for me. But altogether more than 400 visitors came to the exhibition.
The exhibition consists lots of interesting and different topics. The most interesting one for me is, interviews with the people, coming from outside of Germany and the difficulties that they have faced during adaptation period.
Also photo of Hitler with his car in Landsberg and the Hitler toy, are interesting for me. Moreover, I observed that people find the exhibition impressive, and I think we combined lots of different topics like construction, history and culture. This means that we did a great job!

Press meeting with students, 19 December 2019 at 11:00 a.m.
Vernissage and opening, 19 December 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
It is not without current reason that topics such as traffic, bridge building, migration or modern contemporary history are the focus of this project.
Different results from the work of recent years will be presented. In addition to innovative and forward-looking proposals on mobility or bridge construction, there are also many surveys and interviews to be heard and seen that the pupils have conducted in the city.
The programme was first initiated by the assosiation dieKunstBauStelle 2014 under the direction of Wolfgang Hauck and has since been implemented in a variety of ways together with the Mittelschule Landsberg am Lech.
We invite you to this unusual and diverse exhibition.
You will certainly learn more about Landsberg and Landsberger than you might think.

The exhibition is sponsored by the city of Landsberg.
On September 2019, I arrived to Landsberg am Lech as a volunteer after a trip from Istanbul to Munich. It is small and peaceful city which divided into new and old part like most of the cities in Germany. I find old part more beautiful and historical, new part there are nice markets for shopping. People are always smiling to me and they are extremely polite. One of the best activity for me to do in Landsberg is sitting near Lech river and listening the sound of Lech. The location of the city is nice so when I get bored, I can easily go to Munich or Augsburg with Deutsche Bahn or car. People’s interest to ‘art’ impressed me so much in Landsberg, also in the region of Bavaria. Although I find the weather in general Germany, cloudy and cold, Landsberg is different, generally sunny which makes me happy. My days in Landsberg is going quiet and peaceful, thanks to dieKunstBauStelle e.V. for this opportunity.

Young people from the Mittelschule Landsberg have dealt with this future scenario, interviewed citizens and put their ideas on canvas with experts.
“With the ideas of the young people, we have reached a highly professional level. The drafts could also come from a design study course or an engineering studio,” says project manager Wolfgang Hauck of KunstBauStelle e.V. Landsberg.
What will the future be like?
and… look at it.
The exhibition is in the Mittelschule Landsberg:

Trip to the BMW World
In March we made an exciting trip to Munich with our workshop participants to visit the BMW World. We travelled by train and subway to a place full of stories and history and to experience the history of a global brand. to experience visions for tomorrow and the future of mobility. What could be better suited to our theme, we found. The young people were immediately involved when we made the suggestion and were already looking forward to this special day.
When we arrived, the spectacular architecture of BMW Welt was already inspiring us from the outside – it looks futuristic and impressive. It arouses curiosity about the universe of future mobility, and we were already looking forward to seeing what lies behind it.
But before we took a closer look, we first had an appointment. Because we booked a research workshop for our young people, where they could go on a great journey of discovery. The three topics were mobility, sustainability and globality. After a quiz, they were able to work in teams at various stations to become real young engineers – test, try out and develop. They had a lot of fun and worked well together as a team.
After following in the footsteps of the BMW developers, we were able to take a look at the inner workings of building the future. Here we were presented with the latest BMW luxury models, an exhibition of the BMW Group that showed us important business topics, such as the mobility of tomorrow. We learned that BMW i stands for the future of mobility like no other BMW Group brand – through visionary vehicle concepts and mobility services, inspiring design and a consistent focus on sustainability. We got to know the small, cute MINI and the big, proud and very luxurious Rolls-Roye. And we learned that the company’s first vehicle was a motorcycle, the BMW R32 from 1923. The variety of today’s models was right there at BMW Welt – traditional engineering skills and innovative technology were combined here.
In the midst of all these pioneering vehicles, we had a photo and film session with our young people. Of course, not without first discussing this with BMW corporate communications. For this, the students took on the role of BMW engineers, who present a new development and are interviewed about it. And so it came about that the young people were able to present their own sketches on the topic of mobility of the future – at least for our photos and video shoots – right in the middle of the BMW World. Beautiful shots were taken as the works were of course presented once again from a very special perspective.
Full of impressions, but also a little tired, we drove back to Landsberg. It was a fulfilled day. And our young people were all there with great enthusiasm and enthusiasm. We can do something like that again, was the tenor. We will, for sure!
Following on from our paper airplane competition last year, our current youth workshops also deal with the topic of “flying” in the broadest sense. The children show us how they imagine mobility in the future. Really great futuristic possibilities have been created that show us how traffic in cities could perhaps soon be handled. And with what spectacular flight or driving models one will be able to move around.
Whether teleporters, flying skateboards, electric scooters that can be operated via mobile phone: There are always new and ever more imaginative ideas, some still a little vague, others already very precise and mature. Whether this is realistic and whether it would be feasible at some point is not important.
After all, Alois Wolfmüller couldn’t imagine back then that there would actually be airplanes, and above all, in what form and to what extent people fly nowadays. Nevertheless, he thought about flight models, put them down on paper and developed them.
And he never doubted his ideas. When it comes to visions, nothing should stop you. Because only if there are people with imagination, imagination, visions and a strong will, something can move forward, things can be created new.
