EU delegation visits cultural project in Fuchstal

EU delegation visits cultural project in Fuchstal

Digital backpacking – 15 languages, one goal

Fuchstal welcomes participants in the international EU project “Digital Backpacking”. What connects the Kultainer with the EU project and why an anklet from the Turkish War can be an example of storytelling in times of digital travel.

Fuchstal/Landsberg: They live in Denmark, Amsterdam, and Germany, but half of the participants were born in Syria, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Burundi, and Yemen. Nine moderators and reporters aged between 22 and 36 and five leaders of organizations are part of a project that aims to build contacts in crisis regions and facilitate a digital cultural exchange “as a digital backpacking trip”.

“The regions of Yemen, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Syria suffer not only from perennial conflicts and wars, suffer not only from a lack of food but above all from the need to be forgotten,” says Berit Muhlhausen, who, together with David Mason, built a mobile, small children’s circus for thousands of children in Afghanistan for over 18 years, which is still active in all regions today.

An important utensil of the “digital backpack trips” of this Erasmus project of the EU, through which the travel obstacles of the last two “Corona years” are to be digitally overcome, are mementos of stays abroad. Fuchstal has a very special “souvenir” to offer: A wrought-iron anklet in the village church. This tells the story of a prisoner of the Turkish Wars and his return home.

In autumn, more than 45 contributors to the project will meet in Berlin to bring the results together in different formats. The EU is particularly enthusiastic about the idea of a digital exhibition and is funding the project with €113,000.

Before visiting the church in Leeder, the international group of experts was welcomed by Fuchstal’s mayor Erwin Karg in front of the containers, who advised in view of the beautiful weather: “Be happy!” In his speech, Karg expressed special thanks for the participation of Gabriele Triebel, a member of the state parliament, and Margit Horner-Spindler, deputy district administrator.

Triebel emphasized the relevance of a travel project for young people: “Young people have not had the experience through the pandemic, which is deeply human with all of us. They have to learn it first.” Margit Horner-Spindler emphasized how important interpersonal exchange is in her opinion: “You get a different view of culture, politics, and religion. Only through exchange and remaining in dialogue do you ultimately achieve peace.”

Wolfgang Hauck, the partner in the international EU project, explained the connection between the Kultainers circulating in the Landsberg district and their predecessors, the very colorful Afghan “Funtainers” (fun, fun, and containers) and the Turkish flying libraries, the “Edutainers” – education for education. The Kultainers want to use mobile technology to support cultural exchange between people in one place.

One of the supporters and partners is the Hamburg-based Association “Dignity for Children”, which Anna Lena Johansson founded with her husband in 2003. She too knows the situation on the ground in crisis regions.

Wolfgang Hauck, dieKunstBauStelle, now met two Afghan trainers again, whom he trained as stilts trainers in Afghanistan in 2018. “Walking on stilts was, apart from juggling, the only activity that girls and women were also allowed to do. This gave the girls a new attitude towards life and experiences to have a ray of hope with the difficult situation,” says Hauck.

Social Circus” is the term used to describe social work with children and young people in which the techniques of the circus can be used to provide effective trauma education. “A look at the thousands of videos and pictures shows the social and emotional effect these offers have for living together in times of crisis,” says Mie Clemens Schwartz, an anthropologist who got to know the project in Kabul eight years ago.

This diverse composition of the team was at the beginning of the visit to Fuchstal. The welcome was spoken in 15 different languages, not including the Bavarian welcome by Mayor Karg.

Press release 16 April 2022


A European Erasmus project combines art and social work
Landsberg: The European Union supports a socio-cultural cooperation project in which the association dieKunstBauStelle takes over the realization of the digital design.
The qualification and experience of the partners from international socio-cultural work convinced the EU Commission, which is providing 200,000 euros for this purpose.
For the current working session, eight artists, social workers, and heads of social organizations came to Landsberg for four days in February.
Participants in the international meeting in Landsberg were the heads of a cultural and social center in Brindisi (Italy), an integration center for refugees and cultural center in Granada (Spain), a street art association in Amsterdam (Netherlands), and the socio-cultural association dieKunstBauStelle from Landsberg, which was the host.
The other locations of the funded EU project “Art No Stop” are Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Working sessions will be held there to pool the experience of sociocultural projects in a handbook, training courses, and an online platform.

On 1 March, the exhibition of the project “FutureFlashback” will be opened at the T. C. Istanbul University by the Dean Prof. Dr. Hayati Develi, Head of Department of the Faculty of Literature Prof. Dr. Necdet Neydim, and the Turkish project leader Dr. Ensa Filazi. The project leader of the IELEV School, Stephan Reischl, who co-developed the concept with Wolfgang Hauck, will also participate.
The project leader and initiator, Wolfgang Hauck, from the association dieKunstBauStelle, will travel to Istanbul with Anke Neudel, the association’s project coordinator for international cooperation.
The project began in 2019 at the secondary school in Landsberg and gradually spread further and further internationally. First came the public school İELEV in Istanbul, then schools in Ukraine, and then Istanbul University with the Faculty of Literature.
In order to make this project multilingual, the Interpreting and Translating (German-Turkish) Department of Istanbul University was involved in this project and contributed to the intercultural cooperation.
A total of 50 audio contributions from the students were divided among the students from different semesters of the department, transcribed, translated into Turkish, and read in again as audio contributions. The division of work between the students was assisted by Alper Akbay, a graduate of the department. Transcriptions, translations as well as audio recordings were completed by Ayşenur Yavuz, Sümeyra Tatlı, Deniz Varol, Yasin Atar, Hatice İnci, Tolga Maden, Sümmeye Saliha Kantar, Sema Durmuşlar, Şimal İda evik and Ersin İşbilir. The official website was translated into Turkish by graduate Suna Yıldırım.
Now, for the first time, all language versions are being shown in Istanbul. It is just too tragic that the exhibition in Ukraine was launched in January 2021 and now the traveling exhibition has to be postponed.
The first part of the exhibition was already on display in Landsberg on the main square. There, one could call up the sound recordings of the young people’s contributions with QR codes. This connected the digital and analog worlds,
The digital exhibition is independent and can be accessed at:
The various international participations were supported by:
Kultur macht stark, Türkische Gemeinde ein Deutschland Mein Land- Zeit für Zukunft, Deutsch-Türkische Jugendbrücke, Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future EVZ, Multicultural Ukraine (MKUA).

Praise and applause for a tremendous achievement

Fashion Costume Project “The Red Thread – Trau Dich” by the cultural association “dieKunstBauStelle e.V.” and “Stelzer” presented in the gym in the Platanenstraße an impressive final presentation with top-class costume creations and great acting performances on stilts.

For the third time now, the fashion costume project “The Red Thread” of the Landsberg Cultural Association “dieKunstBauStelle e.V.” has been promoted with funding from the program “Kultur macht stark. “Alliances for Education” carried out by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Landsberg Young people from Landsberg and the surrounding area, pupils, Landsbergers and Syrian refugees, have been working together since July with great verve to work on their works, and finally in a great final performance on stilts to introduce the Landsberg audience.

In this year’s Long Night of Art, the weather conditions were not the best, so the delicate costumes and masks were shown only in one exhibition. Now the fascinating results of the costume and theater workshop could be presented as a final performance in the gymnasium of the elementary school Platanenstraße.

Metal and raffia costumes and a forest of masks

There was an exciting and well-conceived production – with costumes that live on the opposite: metal materials and bast fabric were combined in the creation. In addition, participants held animal masks attached to wooden sticks in their hand during the presentation. With pig, rabbit, elephant & Co., they created a whole forest full of masks.

“For this unusual production this year, it was particularly elaborate and demanding to make the costumes by hand,” emphasizes Renate Stoiber, former head of the costume department of the Bayreuth Festival. “The young people have shown a lot of patience. A big thank you goes to you and of course to the many helpers in the background. Without her dedication and tireless commitment, we would never have made it. “

A piece of the teenagers

Peter Pruchniewitz, theater director of the Stelzer, studied with the young people in the autumn holidays with the newly created costumes and masks a performance with musical accompaniment, which has drawn the audience immediately in its spell. “The young actors have worked out everything themselves, brought in many ideas, developed the dramaturgy and selected the music themselves,” stresses Pruchniewitz. “It was a piece of the teens, completely self-made.”

But there was a big round of applause from the audience: “The young people really did something – and that in addition to the school, exams and homework,” says Maggie from Erpfting after the production, while they were still together cozy with coffee and cake together. “Also acting I found the dramatic story played very convincingly”.

“It was a real dance theater on stilts,” stresses Brunhilde from Kaufering. “The costumes were so elaborately worked. I especially liked the idea with the animal masks. “Ute from Bremen was particularly fascinated by how much work and energy the young people put into this project. “I think it’s great that they do handicrafts in their spare time and also stage themselves and present them on stilts for more than half an hour,” she says.

Wolfgang Hauck, director of Stelzer, was very happy. “After the successful festival Licca Line, we had another opportunity to realize a bigger project for and with young people in Landsberg. That was a very special opportunity that would not have been possible without the funding. “

The extracurricular project, which theKunstBauStelle is implementing together with the project partners “Die Stelzer” and Mittelschule Landsberg, is part of the measure “Jugend ins Zentrum!”, Which is part of the program “Kultur macht stark. Alliances for Education “funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Project «Türkenmariandl» presented at TGD-Conferenze at Berlin

Berlin, 4.12.2015, Rotes Rathaus

Türkische Gemeinde in Deutschland – Almanya Türk Toplumu

‘Mein Land – Zeit für Zukunft’ – ein Programm der Türkischen Gemeinde in Deutschland, zu dessen Gelingen dieKunstBauStelle, die Mittelschule Landsberg am Lech und das Landsberger Tagblatt seit dem Startschuss 2013 mit zahlreichen Projekten immer wieder beigetragen haben. Nun trafen sich Projektleiter und Kooperationspartner zur Fachtagung ‘Partizipation als Prozess – Vielfalt in der Wirkung?! Stolpersteine & best practice-Ansätze in der Jugendkulturarbeit’ mitten im Herzen Berlins. Die Projekte werden über das Bundesprogramm ‘Kultur macht stark’ gefördert.

Projektleiter Klaus Komatz und pädagogische Leiterin Lena Graser warfen zusammen mit Vertretern der über 60 Bündnisse im Roten Rathaus einen Blick in die Vergangenheit. Schautafeln, Videos, Tonaufnahmen und Live-Berichte präsentierten großartige Projekte aus ganz Deutschland. Ergebnisse aus dem ‘Türkenmariandl’ und ‘Erzähl’ deine Geschichte’ durften da natürlich nicht fehlen und waren in der Ausstellung mit Bild- und Tonmaterial vertreten. Mit der Erfahrung von bereits neun durchgeführten Projekten gaben Wolfgang Hauck (dieKunstBauStelle), Lilli Huber (Soziologin und ehemalige wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin des ISB) und Christine Stahl (Mittelschule Landsberg am Lech) neuen Projektteilnehmern kompetent Auskunft über Tricks und Kniffe für gelingende Workshops.

Auch der Blick in die Zukunft fehlte nicht. Im Rahmen der drei Workshops ‘Interkulturelle Bildung – Wirksamkeit und Relevanz kultureller Bildung im Kontext von Diversität’, ‘Was heißt eigentlich bildungsbenachteiligt? – Reflexion über die Zielgruppe der Jugendlichen und Auseinandersetzun mit Herausforderungen in der Praxis’ und ‘Erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit im Bündnis – Hemmnisse und Chancen nachhaltiger Kooperationen und strategischer Partnerschaften” tauschten alte Hasen und Neulinge intensiv Erfahrungen aus und arbeiteten konstruktiv an Entwicklungsfeldern.

“Nachdem die Zusammenarbeit mit der Mittelschule in den vergangenen Jahren so wunderbar geklappt hat, steigen wir in eine vierte und fünfte Projektphase ein, die in den kommenden beiden Jahren stattfinden wird”, erklärt Hauck. Wer jetzt denkt, da wird Unterricht auf den Nachmittag ausgedehnt, der irrt. Bei allen Workshops haben die Jugendlichen das Thema festgelegt und Ergebnisse selbst erforscht. “Somit war die Motivation sehr groß und alle Schüler*innen, die an einer Schreibwerkstatt, einem Foto- oder Medienworkshop teilgenommen haben, waren hellauf begeistert und beim Anblick der Ausstellung sehr stolz auf ihre Werke” so Stahl.

20 Jahre Türkische Gemeinde in Deutschland

Dieses Treffen war integriert in die Feierlichkeiten zum 20 jährigen Bestehen der türkischen Gemeinde in Deutschland

Neben dem türkischen Botschafter Hüseyin Avni Karslıoğlu, sprachen die Bundesministerin für Bildung und Forschung Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka die Grußworte. Daneben gehörten auch Bundestagsabgeordnete, Vertreter der Verbände und anderer Partnerorganisationen zu den Teilnehmern.

“Bestmögliche Bildungschancen für Kinder und Jugendliche, unabhängig von ihrer sozialen Herkunft,” forderte Wanka. Kolat Dilek, Bürgermeisterin von Berlin und Senatorin für Arbeit, Integration und Frauen, betonte, daß jeder Euro in die Integartion von Flüchtlingen uns allen zu Gute kommen wird.

ARCHITECTUS LUCIS – viele Eindrücke

Mittlerweile haben wir unser großes Abschlussevent hinter uns gelassen, die Ausstellung ist vorbei, die Werke sind zerstört. Was bleibt, sind wunderschöne Erinnerungen an eine tolle Zeit eines gemeinschaftlichen Arbeitens, gemeinsamen Kreativ-Seins und an einen guten Austausch miteinander.

Unser Projekt und dessen Ergebnisse sind auch bei den Ausstellungsbesuchern sehr gut angekommen. Auch die Mitmachaktion – jeder musste sich zunächst ein Objekt aus Karton bauen, um die Ausstellung überhaupt besuchen zu dürfen – hat allen nach anfänglichem Zögern großen Spaß gemacht. Und es ist kaum zu glauben, welch kreative Objekte konstruiert worden sind: Von Miniaturstühlen, wundersamen Hüten, Flugobjekten bis hin zu Spock-Ohren – alles war dabei. Dabei haben die Besucher selbst erfahren, welch eindrucksvolle Dinge man mit ganz einfachen Materialien erschaffen kann. “Man bastelt etwas eigentlich Sinnloses, und die Leute lachen einen an”, freut sich Rainer aus Landsberg. Und Simone aus Untermeitingen findet es faszinierend, wie filigran und sogar plastisch man mit einem solch robusten Karton arbeiten kann. “Durch die Mitmachaktion kann man sich gut vorstellen, welchen Spaß die Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer mit dem Projekt hatten”, sagt Ulrike aus Landsberg.

Hannah und Sebastian, aus der 12. Jahrgangsstufe des IKG, haben mit ihrer Schule selbst mitgewirkt. “Das Endergebnis jetzt so zu sehen, ist aber noch einmal etwas ganz anderes”, stellen sie fest – und sind begeistert. Cornelia und Bettina, Lehrerinnen an der Montessorischule Kaufering, die auch sehr aktiv mit ihren Schülerinnen und Schülern am Projekt teilgenommen hat, sind “begeistert und bereichert”, wie sie selbst sagen. Besonders faszinieren sie die Kreativität und die Ideen, die die Schülerinnen und Schüler mit einbringen konnten. Aber auch die Freiheiten, die ihnen dabei gelassen wurden. “Es ist gut, dass die Schülerinnen und Schüler mal sehen: ‘Hier entsteht etwas richtig Tolles, wenn Ihr Euch frei und vertieft mit etwas beschäftigt’.”

Das Zerstören als Abschlussaktion war zwar für viele Besucher und Teilnehmer traurig, da ja sehr viel Arbeit in den Werken steckte und diese so kunstvoll und gelungen waren. Wie zum Beispiel der 11-jährige Jonas aus Landsberg. Er hätte sich gewünscht, dass die Werke mindestens noch eine Woche ausgestellt würden. Dennoch fand er die Zerstörungsaktion “cool”. Insgesamt wurde das Prinzip und die Absicht, die dahinter steckte, durchaus verstanden. “Ich finde es erleichternd und befreiend”, sagt die 23-jährige Leandra aus Graben. “Man hat etwas gemacht, das schön ist. Im Moment des Höhepunktes, in dem Moment, wo es am schönsten aussieht, wird es wieder kaputt gemacht. Durch diese Einmaligkeit gewinnt das Projekt noch einmal an Bedeutung. Man konnte etwas sehen, dass man so nie wieder sehen wird. Außerdem: Wie heißt es so schön? Man soll nicht zu viel altes Zeug mit sich herumschleppen!”
