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!

Our Fotocomic on the problem of a group of young people from different nations – with little change in the bag – to get food, has a curious resolution.
In order to make the mysterious transformation of the paper pizza from the Foodomats into a really real and edible pizza even more spectacular, we wanted to “conceal” exactly this process – namely the transformation – for the photos in steam and fog. To make the spell even clearer. To make it even more mysterious. Therefore, our consultant Conny, who works as a photographer, had the idea to work with dry ice.
Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide (CO2), which sublimates under normal pressure at -78.48 ° C, ie passes directly into the gas phase, without first melting. Dry ice is produced by depressurizing liquefied carbon dioxide under pressure. Part of the carbon dioxide vaporizes and removes the heat required for evaporation from the rest of the carbon dioxide, which cools it down. The result is so-called frozen carbonic acid snow. This is then, depending on the application, pressed into the desired shape.
The implementation of our idea was unfortunately not possible. First of all, it is obviously an art in itself to find a dry ice dealer nearby. After extensive research, our consultant Conny has made a find – in Igling. Unfortunately that did not help, we were unlucky. Exactly in our project period, the entire southern Germany area was affected by delivery problems with dry ice. The reason: Suppliers had problems with the carbon dioxide. We could have gone to Hamburg, because in northern Germany these problems did not exist – but of course this is somewhat absurd for the transport of dry ice.
So, with a heavy heart, we said goodbye to our idea of making pizza disappear in mysterious steam. Nevertheless: Our Fotocomic has become so great – a funny story with a surreal end. Even without dry ice, fog and steam.
Our poor, hungry, but unfortunately dangling youngsters are desperate: But they have the saving idea: Food from the machine … from the Landsberger Foodmaten, which they come across at the hospital. Here they are pulling food out of the machine – in a box, similar to a pack of cigarettes. The food is in paper form in this box and, as we will see later, can actually be made edible.
In fact, the food tomatoes are not available in Landsberg. But there is the art machine. The Landsberg Art Machine is a converted old cigarette vending machine, from which you can “pull” an original piece of art for five euros. From well-known and unknown artists – originals, signed and numbered.
For our purposes and our comic, of course, we had to transform it. It’s possible with Photoshop, but it was quite expensive. Jannis and Nico were incredibly fit and during a project afternoon spared no effort to produce the food tomato, from which you could finally pull pizza, roast pork and spaghetti … However, in a somewhat strange appearing appearance. Which, of course, poses new challenges.
Workshops during the summer holidays 2017
Information and registration by e-mail:
Creative instead of boring: Just in time for the start of the summer holidays, the Landsberger Kulturverein «dieKunstBauStelle e.V.», «The Stelzer» and the Mittelschule Landsberg will once again start their joint project “Der Rote Faden” (The Red Thread ) with costume and theater workshops for teenagers 13 years and older.
As in previous years, this summer also offers the opportunity to learn about design, stilts and theater performance in one fell swoop.
Between 1 August and 14 September, free summer workshops will take place, which will be presented in a final presentation at Landsberger Langen Kunstnacht on 16 September. To be completed.
Started in August with the costume workshops, which takes Renate Stoiber, former head of the costume department of the Bayreuther Festspiele under their care. “We will again build exciting and cool things,” says Stoiber.
“This time, we are also using materials from the construction market. We screw, drill, saw and glue and create a “forest of masks” – the guys are also welcome to this time and are very welcome. “
The theater and stilts workshop is run by the sons, “Here the youngsters learn to walk and play on stilts,” says Wolfgang Hauck, theater director. “After all, they will present the costumes at the” Langen Kunstnacht “as an exhibition and performance.”
The participation is free of charge, as the project “Youth is the center!”, Within the framework of the program “Culture makes strong. Alliances for education “is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The dates are discussed with the participants.
Young people between the ages of 13 and 18 are now welcome to participate.
“There are so many people, of whom many foreign people show their love without thinking of profit
People serve people in crises and many moments
People turn to people when they are cold
People donate to people, people educate people. “
This is the first sentence of the song «Menschen» by the German Rapper UMSE. As the title says, this is devoted to the human being: there are good, evil, and those in between, there are big, small, old, young, very different characters with different character traits.
What is clear, however, is that more people want a very specific variety: “Positive people, I mean these people, who are never aggressive and restrict themselves to harmony.”
New, own video for the song
Because the song is so important from the very moment of his message and fits perfectly into our time, we decided to use it for our project. After all, it is about humanity, tolerance and integration. On the one hand, we will produce a new video of the song with the refugees as well as the pupils of the IKG. On the other hand, we would like to re-record it and let it be re-recorded by the project participants. The idea was for Tobias Dengler, grammar school teacher for German and history at the IKG, currently “seconded” as the class leader of the refugee classes at the Berufsschule.
However, in order to produce moving pictures to the song, it is important for us to get involved in the language and to understand the text, which is of course not self-evident to our young refugees. That is why we went through it in groupwork – in each case with the students of the IKG as mentors – have read it, discussed it and then finally gather ideas for the individual sequences to the video. For only those who understand the partly quite profound lines is able to realize a pictorial realization.
“The song fits very well with our theme,” says 16-year-old Sophia, who accompanies the refugees as an IKG student. “We explain to the refugees what they are doing and how the lines are to be understood.” The song shows that there are other sides and opportunities for people to get a better deal with each other. “
“I think it’s good that we’re doing something with music,” says 18-year-old Saimon from Eritrea. “It’s fun to make a new video for the song, I like the song because it’s about it “I can already understand the text, but sometimes it is hard for me to express myself.” Speaking and learning the German language is – apart from that From co-operation with German youngsters – an additional important reason for participating in the project. “Speak German and have fun – that’s why I come,” Saimon emphasizes.
We have already begun with the visual implementation. That can be a lot of fun. But also a lot of patience had to be applied. “One is not the first, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, who has to make the decision, so do it or throw a coin,” raps Umse. The fact that it is not easy to show the thrown coin as a video sequence, our project participants have been able to convince themselves. It takes a few attempts until everyone is completely satisfied. Finally everything has to be right: light, shadow, position, litter of the coin, etc.
The 17-year-old Max, a student of the IKG, who is almost from the beginning, finds this project phase the most exciting. “It ‘s great to have the big picture now, to create a new music video, which makes sense and motivates, because music is added as a new component to the project, and it’ s even more interesting Is so multi-dimensional.”
Everyone can, of course, bring their own ideas and suggestions – everything is taken into account and tried to realize. Zeya, a 20-year-old from Iraq, is particularly pleased with the project: “Everyone has an idea, that is important. We eat and play and work together, that makes me great fun.”
But there is still much to be done. In the next step, we will cut past video material – matching the lyrics. And we are all very excited about what will come out in the end.
The Rotary Club Ammersee-Römerstraße supports the cultural education programs of the Landsberger Kulturverein «dieKunstBauStelle e.V.» with investments in media technology.
A new camera with accessories and sound technology for photo and film worth 2,000 euros could be purchased. The handover takes place during a workshop in Landsberg am Lech.
“We are very impressed by the association “dieKunstBauStelle e.V.” and is convinced by its work, quality and the sense behind the whole,” says President Nicole Truckenbrodt. “We always see that we are acting locally and globally with our measures,” continued Truckenbrodt. “Germans, together with refugees across the world, are creating something new, which we all do not know yet what it will become – and that is great. The project really opens up prospects for both sides and arouses hope for all of us. “
Wolfgang Hauck, board member of the association is very pleased with the donation: «Investments are not possible in our funding programs. With the donation of the Rotary Club Ammersee-Römerstraße, we are now able to use media technology for three teams. »
The participants are also looking forward to the current projects. Two media projects are currently running, in which the new equipment is being used intensively. The media workshop «TAMAM» is conducted as mentors with around 20 refugees between the ages of 18 and 26, with the support of IKG students. A further project with young people from the Mittelschule continues the workshop series “Türkenmariandl”. The focus is on video and film – from the creation of a storyboard to the realization of videos.
