With the educational project ICH SO DU SO, we embark on a journey of discovery: In search of what makes us special, we discover that we actually have more in common than what makes us different.
The educational project takes place in the region of Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. It aims to raise awareness and celebrate diversity in all its varieties among students in the region and beyond.
Students will have the opportunity to choose from a range of workshops and express their ideas of normality and difference through creating their own animated films, texts, photographs, comics, movies and shadow puppets.
The project is based on an existing non-fictional book by the artists' community Labor Ateliergemeinschaft. The book "Ich so du so - Alles super normal" features comics, many contributions from children, pictures and funny texts, all of which encourage us to look at ourselves in a new and different way.
"And they give you courage to be who you are and to let others be who they are - just normal and very special."
But what is normal? The nonfiction book “Ich so du so” comes with a Normal-O-Meter that helps measure our normalcy most precisely. Am I extremely normal? Extremely abnormal? Or rather moderately abnormal?
