Collective Drawing
What possibilities arise when we understand drawing as a tool for intervention and participation in urban and social contexts? In this experimental workshop, led by architect and illustrator Lukas Hamilcaro, participants will experience drawing through the production of spatial and visual-tactile narratives that connect them. Drawing will be considered as a multisensory movement that deals with the embodiment of perception. It links situations with actions. As such, drawing is ideally suited to initiate acts of intervening and producing relations. The participants of the workshop will create a large-scale collective drawing, which will be publicly exhibited during the KISD conference »Intervening Drawing«, June 6-8, 2024.

Time: May 27 – June 6, 2024, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Venue: Köln International School of Design, TH Köln, Ubierring 40, 50678 Köln, room 240.

Lukas Hamilcaro (b. 1991) is an architect-illustrator based in Marseille, working in the fields of temporary architecture, urban design, scenography and illustration. He studied architecture at the École nationale supérieure d’architecture Paris Val de Seine and at the Universidad Federal do Rio de Janeiro. He has worked for many years with raumlaborberlin and the ETC collective, pioneers of collaborative architecture. He often works in a participatory approach, and conducts many workshops with different types of public, including students, people with disability, children’s and marginalized communities. For him, architecture and visual art is a way to experiment space with a common-tool that aims to share public imagination.
