The workshop “AmericanCity” addresses the deployment of amerika-inspired icons and the proliferation of amerikan symbolism in the urban context of Halle. The encyclopaedic collation of amerika-inspired motifs and impressions by means of photography and drawing is to be linked with essay-style descriptions of present conditions at the places where these can be found. Storytelling combined with illustrations of amerikan symbolism in Halle will chronicle both the users of this symbolism and the background to its local appropriation. It is planned to publish the results in the forthcoming Festival catalogue or in a separate format.
Workshop with Anna Berkenbusch, professor for communication design.
