from all over the world
At every venue of the tour, ifa invites local designers to show their works together with Pure Gold. The workshops that take place at the international touring exhibition venues with local designer and maker scenes are guided by Axel Kufus and the design duo Studio Lapatsch|Unger (Annika Unger and Anja Lapatsch). A direct result of the workshops are Upcycables, simple and non-verbal video instructions in stop-motion format that invite the spectator to imitate and gain a new perspective on waste materials.
