exhibition in-person

‘farbenfroh’ is a participatory exhibition of painting equipment that integrates watercolours into mobile objects as a transforming element for creative play and artistic work. (1-99 years) The collection consists of earth pigment colours, inspired by the dictionary of colour combinations by the Japanese artist Wada Sanz.

Unlike a stationary paint box, ‘farbenfroh’ seeks to relate to the body and builds a relationship into the creative moment. The interactive installation welcomes children and adults alike.

Ruth Spitzer is a German-Canadian designer and educator.
