LAB [zaˈlɔŋ] is a networking event in the TRANSFORMATION PLUS LAB dedicated to:

- Inspiring keynote talks

Our first LAB Zalon of the year focuses on „Global Inspirations & Local Heroes – a retrospective on the creative process” presented by the internationally renowned artist Caro Krebietke and will include the opportunity to participate in a group artwork.
About „Global Inspirations - Local Heroes”
Caro Krebietke - artist in residence of New York, Norway, Russia (and many more) - will give us the opportunity to hear about her work and her own formula to the creative process: A dialogue with her’ environment and people of various backgrounds. She will share how her work is mostly expressed in the unspecified nature of objects and found materials, and that it is their characteristics and texture, that often determines the direction of her artistic intentions, and how thus, some of her projects partially invent themselves and involve chance as well as the personal dynamics of other people involved. Hence she will give insights on why she experiences the process of creating art to follow an own inner logic that incorporates as much artistic as scientific methods.
