Already during the Culture and Youth Culture Days 2013, the aim of the Wort:Bilder project was to offer a highly professional offer for visitor groups from social institutions such as senior citizens' homes, youth settlements or Lebenshilfe. With the Chiemgau Culture Days 2014, the lighthouse project is now being continued in an expanded form. It is not about art history, but about the joy of observation and one's own creativity.
The two young stage poets Pauline Füg (Bavarian Culture Prize winner and graduate psychologist) and Henrikje Stanze (graduate professional pedagogue and nursing scientist) developed the concept on the basis of new creative work with dementia patients at the New York "Museum of Modern Art", which they were allowed to test there together with Gary Glazner and adopt exclusively for Germany. Especially for DASMAXIMUM they make this innovative approach to art possible for a broader audience.
They take selected works by Georg Baselitz, Dan Flavin or Andy Warhol as a starting point to transform images and sculptures of contemporary art into words. What is new here is the loose and interdisciplinary character, which allows a new work to emerge on a different level in the community. This allows even infrequent museum visitors access to art - and conversely, the art public to share in the unbiased view.
