Writing Inspired by Art

Are you looking to expand your creative writing practice?✍️

Does visual artwork inspire / speak to you?🎨

Are you looking for new subjects/topics to inspire your writing?🖼️

Join us for this one-of-a-kind writing series that teaches the forms and methods of creative writing on art! We push further than the technical ways of describing a piece, but moreover ask, how does this piece inspire you? This course encourages the creative writer to tap into the ways in which a piece of visual art inspires your story-telling. Within this course, you will develop a short completed (edited with feedback) literary piece, and also have the opportunity to present your piece to the public during the exhibition finissage on the following evening. (please see schedule below for a more detailed description).

This course is open to all levels of writing / all languages / all levels of art studies.

Which pieces of visual art will we be using as inspiration?

This month, we will be diving into the work of artist,Valentine Emilia Bossert.
Valentine Emilia Bossert is a visual artist and philosopher born in Switzerland in 1990. She studied in London and now lives and work in Berlin. Since 2012, she has been part of numerous exhibitions internationally. This is her first solo exhibition in Berlin.
Her art practice dissects what it means to be human by exploring consciousness through dreams, memories, impressions and repetition, and it particularly focuses on the topic of utopia.
We will discuss and dive into Valentine’s art work and discover the stories we wish to tell- inspired by her pieces on display at the art gallery, The Workshop in Kreuzberg!
