For children and young people aged 12 and over with an appetite for art, photography and experimentation.


We will take a look at what the artist and architect Sofia Karim does with her Samosa paper bags, how many different ones there are and what stories lie behind them. Afterwards, we will design our own bag(s) – it can be written, painted, glued, stamped or printed with a colour printer. We think about what messages we have on our hearts and thus create our very own reportages on paper.

The bags can become three-dimensional objects or simply form the flat background for our own creative works. Finally, we photograph our favourite bags with a professional camera and lighting and thus collect the material to present our works later, e.g. on a video screen in the Kunsthaus.

Please collect paper bags of all sizes in advance and bring them with you!
