We discussed culural, geographical, historical contexts of the work by Daniel Blaufuks and the stories of our families. We discovered we are all mixed, our roots were spread out around the worls. Many students had african ancesters, one grand father was a nazi soldier, others were Portuguese soldiers in Africa, racism, colonisation and war issues were raised. Drawng out our family portraits we discovered things that our parents had kept in silence. All kind of archives were used; objects, photographs, post cards, oral histories. The end products were very different from drawing, to objects and collages. The important was the thinking process, drawing to unserstand ourselves.
The students chose a particular time period when emerging packages were collected at home (eg Christmas). Then it was all transported to school. The task was to create a 3d artpiece on cardboard called HAPPY CONSUMER. How happy is the consumer who pollutes the surroundings of themselves?

50 students from Sally Studio made human sculptures with unexpected messages during one month to place them in different positions in cityspace. Each sculpture is done for special places in the cityspace where they should capture the attention of passers-by and communicate their surprising idea. You can find beggars, popstars as well as office workers as clowns among the sculptures.

During this workshop, students learned about the history of street art, thought of their own message to the world they would want to communicate anonymously, sketched their ideas, obtained the ability to make a stencil by cutting PVC and finally realized their ideas collectively on a temporary wall made of cardboard boxes.

The aim and tasks were to carry out a spontaneous project from the surrounding materials. The work – out and realization of the project – a fully accomplished students team work.
