Artistic work in the defendence and maintenance of peace and solidarity has been the central concern of this seminar. Especially the methods of aesthetic research and its practice in the field of peace-pedagogic and solidarity have been in the focus of this intense week with participants from different European regions. Peacekeeping and solidarity are central concerns of Kinderfreunde Mühlviertel. To pass over the knowledge about these topics is one of their most important aims. Artistic methods and the methodic concept of the aesthetic research suit in a very good way to these purposes, as it became visible within this seminar.

Experiments and research-work by means of photography, installations and performance-art. To make the program perfect, we had an excursion to the Memorial of Hartheim and to Lentos arts-museum in Linz. During the time of stay in Linz we had micro-performances in the streets of Linz for to collect practical experiences about the topics of the seminar. The participants learned about the theoretical and practical fundamentals of various artistic technics, especially photography, performance-art, theatre and installation. Inputs of theory offered the necessary background knowledge, practical exercises assured the abilities of utilization. Presentations in the end of the seminar of self- conceptualized and applied artistic productions have shown the amazing variety of the learned contents of this seminar.
