Exhibition / Workshop

How things will finally change

October 16 – 18, 2014,

In a 3-day workshop the makers of the animation film „How things will finally change”, will present their concept of the film and the working methods and processes. In exchange with participants, the workshop intends to contribute to bringing the work on the film a step further.

The film is based on the illustrated children’s book “Communism. A small story about how things will finally change” and it will consist in two parts. Part one explains the capitalist economy and the recent crisis related to it. Part two depicts several utopian attempts to realize a better world.

The modules of the workshop can be visited independently from each other:
