Mulackstrasse 12, 10119 Berlin-Mitte

The concept store Baerck invited Depot Basel to Berlin. In their showroom on Mulackstrasse a selection of works that have been exhibited in Depot Basel, or have been created there since Depot Basel’s was founded in 2011, are presented. At the same time, the results of the Workshop ‹Wildes Denken› – initiated by Depot Basel and Baerck – are shown. The objects on display – all of them unique pieces – are for sale until the 2nd February 2013.

‹Wildes Denken› is a workshop for improvisation, for using creativity spontaneously and practically. A group of invited participants will – within 3 days – create ‹Objects for the table› out of (residual) material, provided by Depot Basel and Baerck. The focus is more on the experiment and the direct, spontaneous making, and less on a reflected and structured design process. Just as the anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss has written in ‹La Pensée Sauvage›: “The hobbyist does not invent entirely new things, but he improvises and combines materials that he has at hand.”
