DIY Paperbag

20.03.2015 - 31.05.2015

Create your own Paperbag!
Open workshop inviting to experiment and make things ourselves

Grab a ruler, scissors and some glue and create your DIY paperbag for different purposes. Engage yourself in our DIY role play and slip into the role of a “designer”, a “do-it-yourselfer” or a “production staff member”. The concept of do it yourself (DIY) stands in a field of tension that extends between the creative work of do-it-yourselfers and the professional designers. What turns someone into an expert or a layperson in a field of knowledge? The distinctions between the different roles are becoming increasingly blurred. The “abbreviated” depiction of the roles aims at encouraging people to discuss and reflect on their own experience while creating their favorite DIY bag.

With Sophia Eyb, Mirjam Egloff, Esther Engeli, students Zurich University of the Arts (Master Art Education and Master Transdisciplinarity)

Friday to Sunday, 20 to 29 March, and Tuesday to Sunday, 5 to 10 May 2015, during the museum opening hours. No registration required. During educational events places in the open workshop are limited.
