In 2018, Platform MAKE. has been focusing on waste(d) materials including plastic waste (see Precious Plastic Project) and aluminum scrap (see Raw Art Sand Casting). With 2018 going to its end, our theme is going to its end. Inspired by Wes Anderson’s Trash Island, we considered this lecture the perfect–imperfect place to be for you (and us) this December.

Ever since we started building Dave Hakkens recycling machines (see Wintersession 2018) with a dozen art and design students, Ludwig Stadler has been one of the driving forces in keeping these machines going.

In the context of the New Urban Production (Neue Urbane Produktion) exhibition at HALLE 14, Ludwig and friends will be offering a two-day recycling workshop focused on collecting, sorting, shredding and melting wasted plastics into new application ideas. For those who always wanted to get started with do-it-yourself plastics recycling, join the team!
