Julika Mayer & Karoline Hoffmann (DE)
What things do
There’s gold, there’s light, there’s air, there it sparkles, there it floats, you also get out of breath sometimes, there it’s empty, there it’s full, there it’s there, then it’s gone, then there are many, then I’m alone. How can that be? (Come in everyone.) Children are best at asking questions. And observe. And try things out, too: together we discover a glittering world _ In „DING.” (THING.) we let ourselves be surprised by the stories that emerge. Together we see how something comes into being, (almost) by itself. In search of chance, a piece emerges, with body and material, sound and light.
