Workshop von Prof. Senta Connert und Katja Bonnländer (Bildnerisches Gestalten und Therapie):

Places of Remembrance – A practical experiment to reconstruct memories through developing a city
map


People who suffer from dementia, for example Alzheimer's, suffer from memory loss. Events that occurred
long ago, but which can be emotionally significant for us, often lie in childhood. But in what ways can we bring
back to life emotionally significant memories for our present life or for the development of new designs for
ourselves and for being recognized as a person instead of a patient? How can a world and an architecture for
persons who suffer from dementia look like - so that their live can be a personal live?

 

The aim of the workshop is to come in contact with our memories and to build a map and to tell about the experience
after. The students investigate whether and which memories are brought to life with this method. They
observe whether details become more and more detailed, whether there are special smells and colors, surface
textures, haptic or acoustic memories. Whether long-forgotten people appear with whom they are perhaps
connected by a special event or who have played an important role in their lives. As we sketch and model in
ever greater detail, we investigate whether narratives emerge during this process and whether we want to
share them with others.
