Radio report: Trafic in 50 years

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?

Listen up!

and… look at it.

Ausflug in die BMW Welt

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!


A meeting of experts Germany and Turkey in Istanbul

April 8-13, 2019
The governor Harun Kaya of the Istanbul district of Küçükçekmece with 760,000 inhabitants and the department for project development and implementation and the German cultural association dieKunstBauStelle e.V. held an exchange of experts and advisory meetings in Istanbul in April. The activities under the title “ZUsammenKUNFT” were implemented with the support of the German-Turkish Youth Bridge program.
The Project Development Department (PGUB) of the Küçükçekmece District aims to reach disadvantaged children and young people aged 10-18 and migrants living in the district with cultural and educational projects.
Wolfgang Hauck, project manager, chairman of the association dieKunstBauStelle e.V., joined the project, board of the Association of Free Performing Arts of Bavaria and director of the theatre “Die Stelzer”; Monica Schubert, founder and director of the theatre and art school mobilé; Harald Rüschenbaum, artistic director of the Bavarian Youth Jazz Orchestra, Professor Dagmar Boeck-Siebenhaar, from the Free University in Berlin; Selah Okul, Integration Commissioner of the city of Marktoberdorf and head of the working group “Asyl”; Josef Eder, dancer, and choreographer; Stephan Reischl, a former expert at the Goethe Institute in Ankara for German as a foreign language; Nai Wen Chang, an international director, and producer; Emre Tutus, dance teacher and the education experts of the PGUB department of the Küçükçekmece district together. They visited institutions, associations, and schools and held consultations with the directors, heads of administration, and political representatives. The visits to non-governmental organizations, which have extensive experience in the care of refugee and educationally disadvantaged young people, served to explore possibilities for cooperation.
PGUB experts, who also participated in an intensive workshop together with 11 teachers, are already planning a series of social and cultural studies in the Küçükçekmece district. Therefore, further meetings and a continuation of the expert exchange are to follow.
During the meeting with the guests from Germany in the district administration, it was always not emphasized how important it is for the shaping of the common future in Europe to unite young people and promote their active participation in society. With the unifying power of art and culture, the educational work in exchange and cooperation between Germany and Turkey should be strengthened. This important meeting has consolidated the foundations for this.
Several articles have been published on this meeting in Turkey.

Mobility concepts for the future

Fliang 2019 – Mobility concepts for the future

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.

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

In our workshop “Fliàng 2019” we develop mobility concepts of the future together with pupils of the Landsberg secondary school. There are no limits to the imagination. Very futuristic, imaginative, creative and adventurous concepts have been successfully developed. We would like to introduce them briefly:

Carina has the idea of a teleporter: “In Landsberg there are several stations for teleporters, one of them is located at the Bayertor. You can go into the teleporter for just one euro, enter your destination address – and you’re there. Who wouldn’t wish for such a thing?

Jenny shows us her ideas of flying shoes and a city bus with a built-in whirlpool that people can use during their bus ride. She is particularly fond of flying shoes: “Just put the shoes on and take off. That would be so great,” she enthuses.

Hamad sees flying wheelchairs, teleporters and robots in the city of the future. “The robots carry the heavy school supplies – satchels, gym bags, etc. – for us students on our way to school,” she explains, imagining it to be quite pleasant. Even when she thinks of all the other things the robots could do… “for example, activities that are actually quite annoying.

For Ivan, the roads of the future are conveyor belts. Cars will no longer have to drive, pedestrians will no longer have to walk, because they will move on conveyor belts. But the disadvantage of this actually practical idea is: there is less nature, fewer trees and parks. Because the conveyor belts simply need space.

In Luca’s vision of the future, roads are no longer used at all. There are underground tunnels that run on electromagnetic trains. You can stop and get off every ten meters – so you can get to any place you want without having to change trains or walk long distances.

Sophia, on the other hand, also sees a piece of the past in the future. There are carriages as a means of transport again. Just like in the past, they are driven by horses. However, there are now – optionally open or closed – bus stops for horses.

Jeremy’s electric bus is a very special bus – a double-decker bus, in the upper part of which you can sleep. The dashboard is fully digitalized, including voice control and fully automatic transmission. “This electric bus is designed to bundle trips and thus reduce individual trips,” he explains. He is already thinking in fairly economical and ecological terms.

Many great ideas, three of which we would like to take a closer look at and make something of in different groups with different design possibilities: Comics with a preceding storyboard, an accident report about an air collision between a (flying) car and an electric scooter and a marketing strategy for the carriage of the future. So we get deeper into the matter. And we are all very curious to see what will come of it.

Giant wings of cable ties

Giant wings of cable ties

Parallel to our paper airplane workshop, our workshop leader Renate has prepared an “object for all”. We are building a six-meter replica of a wing model, she said.  No sooner said than done. Anyone who was interested could take part and create an impressive grand piano from about 12,000 cable ties.
And so on both workshop days from morning till late at night, we tied, pulled, loosened and reattached. With changing tinkerers, some only for a short time, some who lasted very long. A laborious, but also grounding and relaxing work, in which a great cohesion of all participants was created. Alone through the sheer will to be able to complete the object by the end of the project. And that it was actually completed in the short time available – each and every one of us made his or her contribution.
The completion was not so easy, because our 10,000 cable ties ran out and we had to buy 2,000 more as soon as possible. And also with these it became already again scarce. Hard to believe how many cable ties fit into the inner wire of the wing.
But we did it, and on Sunday afternoon we installed our replica of the Wolfmüller wing model on Hellmairplatz as part of a major ballooning campaign. Everybody who wanted was allowed to decorate the balloons with a message or a drawing. Afterwards we let them all rise into the air together. A really fascinating and contentwise well fitting finale for a very beautiful and loving project.

Fliáng – von der Idee zum Projekt


If you stand in Herzog-Ernst-Str. 179b in front of Edmund Epple’s book and record shop Discy-MusikBuchHandlung and look not only into the shop window but a little further up, you will see an inconspicuous memorial plaque. It commemorates the aviation pioneer Alois Wolfmüller, who was born in this house in Landsberg in 1864. Last year was the 70th anniversary of his death: On 3 October 1948 he died in Oberstdorf. Among other things, Wolfmüller created the first glider for sailing apparatus on a mechanical basis and thus solved one of Otto Lilienthal’s greatest technical problems to date.


Edmund Epple saw this board very often, and it was only a matter of time before the idea of an Alois Wolfmüller paper plane competition was born. “In the shop I also have the exhibition catalogue from 1991 handy next to the cash register. Stories and biographies like that need to be enlivened.” No sooner said than done – and Wolfgang Hauck, artist and director of the association dieKunstBauStelle, was just right with his idea. “More than just an exhibition, a project to participate in should emerge from it,” says Hauck, “one should lend a hand oneself. After all, Alois Wolfmüller is an example of private initiative, courage and commitment.


The idea also convinced the Rotary Club Ammersee-Römerstraße, which approved the financial start-up aid in winter 2017 to develop the concept for the project.



Little by little an entertaining program was developed. And finally, a concept could be developed, which could then be implemented with the support programmes “Kultur macht stark” and “Mein Land, Zeit für die Zukunft” of the Turkish community in Germany.

Exchange of experience at the international level

Directors and heads of the urban project development department in Istanbul are guests of the cultural association «dieKunstBauStelle». Launch of a major joint EU program.

Visit from Istanbul to the Landsberg Cultural Association “dieKunstBauStelle e.V.”: From 19 to 25 June 2018, a delegation of white administrators and two project managers from the Istanbul City Council came to Landsberg am Lech. Its special department is abbreviated to PGUB and stands for “Project Development and Implementation Unit” of the district of Küçükçekmece, the largest district of Istanbul with 760,000 inhabitants alone. Under the direction of the Landsberg Association, a larger EU program will be developed in Istanbul in the next few years. On Wednesday, the guests met with Wolfgang Hauck, the initiator and chairman of the club dieKunstBauStelle and the Mayor of Landsberg Matthias Neuner in the historic town hall. The guests were given a tour of the historic town hall and, of course, mutual gifts were not missing on this occasion. Afterwards, opportunities for cooperation and cultural exchange at different levels were discussed.


Help for disadvantaged youth

The department PGUB was launched in 2015 to develop projects aimed at young people and young adults to develop in the district Küçükçekmece. There live alone 190,000 young people and young Erachsene between the ages of 13 to 30 years. The district is very populated by refugees and migrants due to its privileged location and the strong character of industry and craft industries and therefore also a social hotspot in the seething million metropolis. In this district alone, whose name means “the small drawer” in German, the development department manages a total of 152 schools, 8,500 teachers and 161,000 pupils. “We want to help young people find their way back into social activities, drive their personal development and re-value their value as humans,” says Neslishan Sagbas Önal, EU project coordinator at the Istanbul City Council.
The expertise of the experienced Landsberger Wolfgang Hauck is very much in demand. He has been involved in many areas of cultural education, the Verein derKunstBauStelle, international theatrical work with the Stelzern and as Chairman of the Association of the Free Performing Arts in many areas wide network has. “Essentially, with our support, the organization wants to develop projects in Istanbul that will be implemented in schools, youth facilities and social centers. Our part is primarily projects of a cultural nature, but there is also a great deal of interest in sports activities and vocational training measures, “says Project Manager Hauck. The delegation was very inspired by the many formats and opportunities, but also by the decades of experience in the cultural and educational work, both in Landsberg, as well as other organization in Germany existing “We in turn benefit from the great experience of the Turkish project partner and the major cultural departments in Istanbul, “says Hauck. “For us, the EU project can hardly be accomplished because of the required staff costs.”
“German-Turkish Youth Bridge”
The aim of the visit was to exchange experiences, to plan measures in the cultural, sports and educational fields of education and to establish partnerships. “We are here to see what kind of activities are offered and realized here for these youngsters, especially in the field of art, theater and music, to promote and integrate the disadvantaged youth in our district,” says Önal.

The group has already visited cultural institutions in Bavaria to transfer knowledge. In addition to educational institutions such as the vocational school in Marktoberdorf, extracurricular measures were also attended, such as the theater school “mobile” in Marktoberdorf or the theater “Eukitea” in Diedorf, which has gained a lot of experience with prevention theater. “But our partners also want to get to know our experiences in cultural work with refugees, the problems that arise and their solutions,” continued Hauck. “It is important to mix German and Turkish youth – to create a bridge,” adds Önal – “a German-Turkish youth bridge.”

Wolfgang Hauck is impressed by “how open-minded and how strong the state initiatives in Istanbul are”. “Through our Culturel Relief Program in Turkey and work for the Goethe Institute in recent years, we have become well known in Turkey. The commitment of the cooperation in the base and administration is considerable and shows other, hopeful aspects of Turkey, as one knows from the Turkish joie de vivre and hospitality. ”

Invitation to Istanbul in autumn

But also the Landsberg hospitality can be seen. “We are very pleased how cordially we have been received here,” says Metim Nari, Administrative Director of the National Education Department of the District of Küçükçekmece. “We love the city, its many historical aspects, the architecture and also its nature. And we are very impressed by the work of our partner and the art and culture in Bavaria and Landsberg am Lech. ”

Finally, there will be a counter-invitation in the autumn: “For October or November 2018, a kick-off with stilts and costumes is planned in Istanbul, with the focus on disadvantaged youth and refugees in Küçükçekmece,” says Hauck. “Here we would like to use our experience – but only in elite schools where we have otherwise carried out our projects, but in schools and institutions in social hotspots.” That is therefore obvious, since from a project in 2015, many more stilts in Istanbul are located. “In addition, a further expert meeting is planned in order to be able to put together the programs from the EU Erasmus funding together and in the long term.” With that, the international exchange of experience will lead to the next, promising round.
