At this live event, ten young people from Landsberg Secondary School, aged between 12 and 16 years, will meet in a digital meeting.
Accompanied by experienced media designers as speakers, they will exchange experiences and ideas, and playfully explore their perspectives and common interests in programming.
From this online dialogue at the first meeting, teams and partnerships will be formed, each of which will solve a task and try out to what extent programming as dialogue can be used to identify and solve problems.
The two days are planned as an experiment, in which possibilities of coding are presented, tried and tested.
One task will be to help design an interactive and digital showroom, for example, and to learn how to create the user interface.

GRANTS AND PARTNERS
Future Fashion 222.0
A trip to the exhibition in Munich:
“The exhibition Thierry Mugler: Couturissime presents around 150 haute couture and prêt-à-porter outfits by the visionary couturier, director, photographer, perfumer and dancer, most of which have never been exhibited before, as well as accessories, stage costumes, videos, almost unknown design drawings and archive materials. Numerous works by famous fashion photographers round off the show”.
With a group of our workshop participants we were able to visit a special exhibition.
“Cool” – the commentary by Maja. There is nothing to add to it.
Media project during the summer holidays 2020
The association dieKunstBauStelle offers a holiday project for young people in Landsberg.
Together with the secondary school Landsberg a new holiday project for young people is starting.
A media project to tell the history and stories of Landsberg.
Within the framework of the project series “Türkenmariandl” the socio-cultural association dieKunstBauStelle offers a new open holiday project for Landsberg children and young people.
“We would like to set out with young people to continue a work that began back in 1998 – when pupils at Landsberg secondary school mapped the trees along the eastern city wall,” says Wolfgang Hauck, project initiator and chairman of the association.
The young people can be creative and give free rein to their imagination. For example, researching legends and sagas around the trees.
Each tree should tell its own story – which is recorded in sound recordings and videos. They can also be curious to hear what the sound of a tree bark sounds like. Sound collages will be recorded for this purpose. “A nature installation that we would like to enrich with comments, videos and other ideas,” says Wolfgang Hauck.
The result will be a virtual reality presentation that will invite visitors to experience and take a new form of walking.
In this way, this little-noticed “botanical garden of Landsberg” on the city wall will be revived and discovered. Directly on site or online with VR presentations.
The project, which is being carried out in cooperation with the Landsberg secondary school, is freely accessible and designed as a holiday project for Landsberg’s young people. The participation is free of charge.
A first meeting will take place on Monday, August 3, at 14:00 at the Bayertor.
Who is interested: Just send an e-mail to
The project is supported by the program “Kultur macht stark” of the Federal Ministry and “Mein Land, Zeit für Zukunft” of the Turkish community in Germany.

A new view of the present
Project Future Flashback – a journey into the present
“And how do you see the present now?”
With our brand new project “Future Flashback” we have started a time travel into the present: From the future, from the year 2220, we travel back into the past, into the year 2020. In other words, into the present. We explore objects, everyday situations and explore life in the year 2020, which is sometimes funny and mysterious. In the year 2220, for example, people have long since been wearing implanted chips that take over all the functions that we now have to perform with our mobile phones.
Some of us think that’s really great. But others are also critical of the whole thing. And ask themselves: How much technology is actually good for me? Isn’t that something you lose as a result? Be that as it may: The project has made a difference to all of us. Namely, it made us think. And that we see the world differently somehow.
Some see the future in a rosy light, because everything is much more practical. Like Nicole. She sees the world a bit differently now, for example the thing with the implanted chips: “It would be cool if it worked like this – for example, when it comes to money: You wouldn’t lose your money so quickly if the payment was processed via the chip,” she says. Phillip also says: “After spending a month thinking about the future and inventing things yourself, you realize that some technical achievements – like a hoverbike, for example – would be more enjoyable. If I had that now, a lot of things would be easier.”
Others have a more neutral point of view. But they too now see the world from a completely different perspective. “I see the world with completely different eyes now”, says Maya. “For example, when I walk around and look at an object, I think: Nowadays this object has a certain meaning. What if in the future it has a completely different meaning?”
And still others doubt this world from the future. “I find the world better the way it is now,” Lisa says. “When everything is so perfect, it’s kind of boring, too. You have nothing to work on anymore, because everything is just there.” And her friend Paula joins her: “A perfect world is no longer great.” And yet she thinks it’s better in the year we’re in now.

Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad
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.

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!
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
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.
