Participants will take a tour acquainting them with artist Thomas Demand’s practice, who recreates places where notable events took place using paper and cardboard and subsequently photographs them. After the tour, the group will create their own assemblages of Garage’s interior space.

Thomas Demand is both a photographer and an architect. He approaches the theme of memory in a peculiar way, building paper and cardboard decorations that recreate locations where certain important events took place. The scenery itself can be of different sizes, but the artist’s printed images are always of a giant, full-size scale. The viewer thus gets the feeling that they can step into this odd, cold reality that looks so much like our world. Participants of the workshop will explore the artist's method before trying to transform the surrounding space into a paper panorama.
