LuYang: DOKU Experience Center
Deutsche Bank "Artist of the Year" 2022
Children’s book reading and workshop for 1st – 3rd graders
BookArt: Manuals for Superheroes
November 7 and 14, 2022, 9 – 10:30 am
Superheroes are an inexhaustible source of fantastic stories. But watch out! In the fireworks of explosions, extraordinary abilities, and daring rescue operations, the search for one’s own identity and life’s mission is always at stake. In the exhibition, Lu Yang has a gender-neutral avatar take on a wide variety of forms and mixes the Buddhist search for meaning with laser beams and the aesthetics of gaudy video games. In keeping with this, we read from Jacoby & Stuart’s Handbuch für Superhelden, explore the profiles and pop imagery of Sebastien Perez and Benjamin Lacombe, and learn from Elias and Agnes Våhlund’s graphic novel how, with the right book and the right attitude, you can become a superhero yourself. Flying artist or quick-change artist, cape, mask, or camouflage? What would your superpower be and what does it have to do with you? In the workshop that follows, you can become creative and design your own superhero identity.
In cooperation with the bookstore Krumulus
Workshop for 5th graders on up
LuYang creates fantastic virtual worlds in which heroes defend big cities, fly into space, or fight against unknown powers. The characters wear colorful and sparkling armor and, of course, magical hero accessories. We go on a mission together in LuYang’s world. What superpower have you always wanted? With recycled materials, feathers, glitter stones, and neon tubes we will create our own spectacular hero accessories.
Workshop for 7th graders on up
In the exhibition LuYang, in the person of the avatar DOKU, transforms into six beings with different characteristics. What image worlds does LuYang create to depict rebirth, growth, and decay? The collage technique is a good medium to realize these themes artistically. So that we can create a collage, bring photos of yourself that we can transform into something new with scissors and glue. What happens when I take away or reassemble particular characteristics that make up my appearance? Up to what point do I recognize myself and when does something new emerge?

Reading of the children’s book Abracadabra by Marta Comín and workshop
February 6 and 13, 2023, 9 – 10:30 am
"Abracadabra" — this book is a case. A magic case! Daniel got it from his uncle for his birthday. If you flip through the pages, a few pieces of sugar turn into flying birds in the blink of an eye, and flowers grow out of blocks. Spanish book artist Marta Comín can really work magic. In clear, graphic forms, she hides amazing images that only become visible through the holes and cutouts on the next page. As in the exhibition "ESCRIBIR TODOS SUS NOMBRES", our visual habits are turned upside down with minimalist means. In an interactive reading you can immerse yourself in Marta Comín’s pictorial games and become a magician yourself in the subsequent workshop.

The Language of Patterns

Workshop for 7th graders on up
