Playing Arts connects art and life through the play.

Playing Arts is a network arisen 15 years ago in Germany which animates people to perform their own projects and actions. Stimulated by art impulses one’s own creative action is induced.

 After 4 successful workshops in Bangkok and Chiangmai the following book was made:
Playing Arts in a Thai way, full of examples how Playing Arts has been adapted in Thailand.

The exhibition shows pictures and traces from the workshops.

- Transforming objects shows the transformation of everyday-life objects. Released from their earmarking unimagined possibilities can arise.

- Inspiration by an artworkshows how artworks can animate to creative actions, if one is courageous enough to play the game.

- Making an own playing arts projectshows examples how passer-by get involved in creative projects.

 clips of German Playing Arts projects made this exhibition an “encounter of the cultures”.
