    VVunsch VVerkstatt at NODE

    June 26th – 29th during the NODE Festival in Frankfurt, Germany

    Not a workshop, but a participatory performance. The VVunsch VVerkstatt is an installation/intervention that deals with making wishes come true.

    Throughout the NODE festival the VVunsch VVerkstatt will provide a place for discussing the role of technology as a tool for making wishes come true. Any NODE visitor can participate in this serious wish making activity and use their skills to make somebody else’s wish come true.

    To create the atmosphere of the werkstatt (engl. workshop), the VVunsch VVerkstatt will be equipped with work benches, tools and materials to build with. Participants will be provided with a VVerkkittel (workwear) in order to play the role of the handVVerker (maker).
