MACHEN - is a series of workshop talks, a combination of artist talk and workshop, in which the audience has the opportunity to enter into a conversation with the invited artists about making of art. It is about making something that has to do with textiles, about handwork, which is often seen as a women's domain, about the idea of doing things together and working with textiles as a social practice. Machen is a collaboration with Frankfurter Kranz.
The workshop talks will each be accompanied by one-night exhibitions at STUDIOSPACE Lange Strasse 31, Frankfurt am Main.

With MACHEN: SUSAN DONATH & VRONI SCHWEGLER the series of workshop talks was launched on April 15, 2021.
This workshop talk was dedicated to the theme of death, as the focal point of their artistic work.
Susan Donath works on a conceptual exploratory level, while Vroni Schwegler takes a direct approach to the subject in her artworks. Donath's investigations result in stringent sculptural works, Schwegler's in sensual painting.
