Swiss visual artist Alex Schauwecker is interested in art that discovers the common ground of two worlds and challenges the conventional perception of reality. This is a participatory exhibition with the aim of engaging young people from the local community to explore the subject though drawings and poetry. On 13 and 20 January the artist will lead two workshops to create a joint wall painting. Private View on 20 January includes musical performance by the artist.
