In a package

identity-1Walking through the University on Arts in Berlin, we have met the artist zazzarootto from Italy and his amazing art work. We directly invited him for the IDENTITY symposium next year on the island Lanzarote, bacause he seems to work directly on questions related to this workshop.

Trip nach Züri

In connection with the development of the IDENTITY symposium our way led us to Switzerland, to Zurich, where we found a highly qualified supporter for our project with the curator and art historian S. Wintsch.





Together we visited  organisations, galleries and the exhibition AAA, that you will see all over the city with severalobjeczts..


Ninel C. zu Gast bei art aspects


As part of a conference to the Foundation Program in Berlin with lectures by Otto Scharmer, choreographer, artist and PhD candidate Ninel C. came for a visit to art aspects, whereas she described, practically clear  subjects and methods currently being studied in the world of Otto Scharmer and how she can integrate it for herselve in her work. Very exciting and very funny.

In April, we will begin with the Identity Symposium for students from all over Europe from 18 and 30 years. Following the Art and Nature Symposium taking place also on Lanzarote.

artaspects_Nachhaltigkeit_07In Arrecife, mitten im Industriegebiet, gibt es die einzige Biodieselanlage der Insel.  Wir besuchten die Anlage und ließen uns über die zukünftige Entwicklung auf diesem Gebiet unterrichten. Später besuchten wir in diesem Zusammenhang auch das Biosphärenreservat bei der Inselregierung, wo man uns über die langsamen Fortschritte in dieser Richtung informierte.



artaspects_Spuren deiner Kultur_38LAPAS member Stefan Isenmann is a connoisseur of the Canary Islands. On countless trips to the islands his knowledge accumulates. Near the Castillo Santa Barbara we explored the excavations that were conducted by an Italian team and point out that the name of Lanzarote is of Italian origin.

Besuch aus Hamburg

If you haven`t seen your friends for a longer term, it is a pleasure to come together again. So we were lucky to meet John again, one of our foundation member of art aspect, who is living and studying in Hamburg. He passed by, showing us his first catalogue with amazing art works.

It was always a pleasure to talk with John. This meeting, he surprised us with its first catalog and his new friend Jimmy.


artaspects_Nachhaltigkeit_32A dedicated pilot project of agricultural organization Tanganilla led us to meet with the head of the organization, Klaus Guttenberger, at Zonzamas, the local rubbish dump. Since November 2012 the organisation created the first compost, which should be a clear sign of the reuse of biological materials.
Still, it is a drop in the bucket. The future will show how things develope.




artaspects_Spuren deiner Kultur_54In the south, in Playa Blanca, we examine today with a group of artists learners the relationship between art and culture. On a highly visible area, we are looking for traces of the recent past and we are witnesses of lying prostrate culture. The abandoned, resting after construction areas carry big names but the whole area is deserted, empty and desolate.
