for arts schools and
academies in NRW
Feldstärke NRW (North-Rhine Westphalia) 2016 took place from 1st to 4th July 2016 at PACT. The four-day programme was divided into an internal and a public part.
A: Workshop with Xavier Le Roy und Scarlet Yu
On the second and third days, half of the Feldstärke participants at a time attended a workshop with the artists Scarlet Yu and Xavier Le Roy. They developed ideas and concepts around the theme of the body as sculpture.
B: Independent group work phaseIn parallel with the above workshop, the participants worked in four self-selected groups on specific themes which they had chosen during a group discussion on the second day. From the two-day group work, four artistic offerings emerged: a concert, two performances and a workshop. These were presented to the public in the form of a tour.
The public part of Feldstärke invited interested parties to experience the diverse and inter-disciplinary creations of the students in the form of a public tour. As in previous years, PACT Zollverein made every room in the building available for this including cloakrooms, changing rooms, showers, hallways, conservatory etc.
