My personal tour through the impressive & historic Zweckel machine hall.

For me, working here is also connected to my childhood, which I was able to experience in the Ruhr area, as both my grandparents and my father come from Gladbeck.

Many thanks to our marketing department @ruhrtriennale especially to Franca Lohmann and Fabio Gorchs🙏

As part of the funding program “Integration through Qualification (IQ),
which aims to sustainably improve the labor market integration of adults with a migration background, I helped Lela @lelaviktor to be able to work again in her profession as a make-up artist in Germany through an adaptation qualification.

It was very clear to me that Lela is a young, passionate woman who I would like to shake hands with.

Special thanks go to Vitaly Parulin for accompanying us and to Susanne Dorn from the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Selbständiger Migranten e.V. for the interview in the brochure.

“With great emotion and passion, four pre-school classes from the Wilhelmsburg district school explored the topic of masks at the end of March”

In our MY MASKERADE project, five-year-olds approach the mask from an artistic, fun-filled angle and achieve extremely impressive results.

For me personally, it was a very special experience to share my passion for make-up artistry with pupils from my district and to have initiated this fantastic project with Edmund Siemers.

It was very nice and fulfilling for me to be able to give the students the space to explore their imagination and to present it in a creative way.

Many thanks to Edmund Siemers for the realization of this project, co-founder of the Förderwerk Elbinsel e.V., the Edmund Siemers Foundation
