Werkstatt Wendorf

Werkstatt Wendorf


Werkstatt Wendorf is a countryside heterotopia: an open attempt to shift reality and view society from a different angle. Literally translated, heterotopia are places in a state of being different, places of Otherness. They are interested in the heterotopic character of spaces and language, in how the use of different words, objects and spaces can change the world we live in. If you have a project that you feel fits in with this philosophy and you think the countryside is a good place to practice solemn concentration, please send a short proposal.
