Massaging the Asylum System and Creative Strategies of Care: A Workshop by Project Art Works and Trampoline House by Trampoline House

Location: Fridericianum Trampoline House

Languages: English


In this two-day workshop, lumbung members Project Art Works and Trampoline House imagine what a better asylum system could look like. Bringing together people with flight or migration experience and documenta fifteen visitors with an interest in migration and asylum policies, the workshop merges Project Art Works’ method of visualizing the systems of care that people with complex support needs are dependent upon with Trampoline House’s practice of creating spaces for equal participation and empowerment of displaced people.

During the first day of the workshop, participants will convene in Trampoline House’s exhibition space in the Hübner venue in Kassel to discuss the EU’s failing migration model and make different ‘cosmologies of care’ based on key aspects of participants’ experiences of migration and asylum, ending with a new model that can provide protection for everyone seeking safety in Europe.

On the second day, participants will move to Project Art Works’ installation in the Fridericianum and work together with Project Art Works artists, participants and audiences to imagine asylum through a final drawing within the cosmologies of care installation that has been evolving over the 100 days of documenta fifteen.
