With 'RECKEL!' we see learning as a process actively involving the body and the senses, discovering and expressing through art what it feels like to be part of a community, to inhabit a body, a space or to speak a language, while retaining independence.
Our work tends to cross through this space rather than to circle around it: an exploration into materials, social and societal fabric, sounds and stories; wandering between encounters in search of truth and self in this Esch2022 space. The 'RECKEL!' project is an approach based on collective action as well as individual competencies. We start with an encounter between art, high school, secondary students and the public by learning from the context in which we evolve.
What is changing, what is moving, what will disappear and what will remain? These are questions that form the basis of reflections for our future plans: working with concepts of public space, citizen participation, collectivity and local impact, integrating the constant change in the meaning of documents and ruins, reflecting on the meaning of existing structures and creating links with the public as a partisan audience. Isolating these concepts and recognising them, making the material, oral and social remains of the past accessible again and relevant in the current context.
