RAUSCH with us!

What does design have to do with sustainability? And what can design be? How can it be used to create a positive feeling for the future and ignite the creative will within us?

Let us listen, talk and RAUSCH!

We have invited experts to give us deeper insights into their worlds: Whether it’s scientists or web developers, street artists or fashion designers: The future is being fine-tuned, printed and coded. Nature is providing material; the recycling of which is being carefully considered. The Internet is being measured in CO2, and statements are being made with pen and paper. We will get creative and conjure visions in people’s minds!

Come and let yourself be inspired, get involved – and take a good helping of it with you when you go.

Our workshops are very popular, and the number of participants is limited due to the Coronavirus regulations in the museum. Sign up through binding registration: each workshop is linked with our partner rausgegangen.de – it only takes a couple of clicks to sign up! The presentations and film screenings can be visited without registration, they are, however, limited to 60 visitors. If you want to guarantee entrance to these, please register beforehand. For every part of the programme it is mandatory to wear a mask mask/face covering (covering both mouth and nose) at all times and maintain suggested physical distance between you and other visitors. Please be sure to visit our website before your visit to the Festival as we reserve the right to make changes to our concept due to the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Saturday 5.9.2020 – Design for the future

Saving resources with design

To kick off our programme we will be going back to the basics: Which material do we use in design in order to truly save resources? Will we soon be growing products themselves? And what are we building upon for our tomorrow? Our experts will put you in a RAUSCH with the world of possibilities.

Workshop (German)

3D Repairs – making your own spare parts with a 3D printer

Anika Paape, 3d-reparieren.de

3D printing your own replacement parts? How does that work? We want to answer this question and even plan on doing one or two 3D repairs on the spot. Do you hope to repair one of your own broken devices using a 3D printer? Then bring it along with you and together we will determine if it is a good candidate for a 3D repair. And we’ll answer questions like: How do I get it into my computer? And out of the printer? If you are interested, just send a picture of the device you want to repair prior to the workshop to anika@3d-reparieren.de.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

Design for the Circular Economy – more than product design

Susanne Volz, ecocircle concept

The circular economy is gaining unprecedented momentum, both in the economy and financial industry as well as among policy-makers. It has finally become promising to join forces to promote and implement changes to our production and consumer behaviour with all our might. But how can we do that in practice? This presentation will show examples of the circular economy in their respective contexts and presents useful methods for practical “circular system developing”.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

Architecture for a future worth living for

Jonathan Lunkenheimer, Architects4Future

The construction industry has a great responsibility for climate change and other types of environmental degradation. The Architects for Future aim to raise awareness of this responsibility and promote a positive vision of how designers and planners can work in a way that utilises the environment instead of harming it. In its demands, Architects for Future put a strong emphasis on the well-wrought use of materials.

Talk (English) — ca. 20 min

Making products with mushroom technology

Jan Berbee, Grown.bio

Mycelium is an exciting natural material, but what are its applications in a new sustainable world? How good is it really, and what does that mean for our society? This lecture will be about a part of a fungus: Mycelium. This fungal material will play an important role in our future lives: We might be holding it in our hands every day, or even living in it!

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

„Moor is more“ – a material metamorphosis

Jan Christian Schulze, Moorwerk

Over the course of time, moores have been used in many different ways: they have been vulnerable to constant change in the face of culture, industry and environmental protection, and found itself in the area of tension of different interested parties from the beginning. Just as rich as this nature itself is the potential to transfer its cultural and material value with the help of design, to give it a shape in order to become a medium to help educate people and foster awareness for this underappreciated environment.




Film presentation

„Die Rote Linie“ (German)

mindjazz Pictures

DIE ROTE LINIE (THE RED LINE) shows the protest against the destruction of Hambach Forest and the resistance against lignite mining from the perspective of different groups that began fighting alone, then joined forces against the German energy giant RWE. This is a local David and Goliath story that is inextricably connected to the global issues of climate change, energy policy and civil protest movements. The Hambach Forest is now a symbol of resistance against the status quo of energy policy.

Sunday 6.9.2020 – City design – Part 1

Creatively using (city) spaces

The majority of the world’s population lives in cities and urban agglomerations. Should this really be answered with a construction boom and real estate as a financial investment? How can we instead – together as a community – re-design cities to become communal, inclusive places with a better quality of life for all of its citizens!

A Construction Ban as Art of the Future? Laying the Groundwork for a New Architectural Debate

Alexander Kleinschrodt, Architects4Future

People are still unaware of the massive ecological damage that the construction industry causes; mayors and ministers still like to be seen on the demolition excavator or at ground-breaking ceremonies. In contrast, the demand of architectural journalist Daniel Furhop is clear: “Ban Construction!” He is campaigning for a positive programme for a good and sustainable coexistence that is founded on the existing building stock. Here we will take a closer look at his stance as well as other current building culture innovations.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

Using buildings to preserve them

Hannes Lindemann, HausHalten

Perceiving vacant buildings not as a problem, but as a potential for regeneration, the association HausHalten e.V. developed exploitation and consultation models for the revival of buildings and business locations. HausHalten has created new perspectives with its four different exploitation models for the revival of vacant buildings and business locations in and around Leipzig. The key to this initiative is their goal of using buildings to preserve them. This presentation will highlight the approaches and exploitation models used in this process.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

We are strong – Children as designers

Verena Aurbek, Stadt+Handel

Children have a right to leisure and play. However, not every child can enjoy their rights. Oftentimes people are aware of specific wrongs, but there aren’t any ideas of how to resolve them. “We are strong” is an exemplary project that shows just what kind of power the voice of children’s language can develop in word and images when we do not try to use them, but rather help them become clear. Not only does this help raise awareness of the wrongs, but new approaches can be used to find solutions.

Talk (German) – ca. 30 min

Veedel-Wear / Werkstadt829

Dominik Siebel, MKM Mode Kollektiv Mengenich

“Crisis is a productive state. You just have to eliminate the aftertaste of catastrophe.” Max Frisch. We will talk about the sometimes challenging processes – the successes and difficulties – of founding our community-oriented company in the district of Bocklemünd on the outskirts of Cologne. We will begin by explaining the structure of the social environment, current cooperation and designs. Then we will (hopefully) report on how the current crisis could be used as an opportunity in the best sense of Frisch’s words.

Discussion — ca. 1 h

Saturday 12.09.2020 – Coding for climate – Part 1

Digitalisation and sustainability

The Internet and digitalisation are a part of our everyday lives and communication, making them easier; they stand for efficiency and dematerialisation. But what is the carbon footprint of the virtual space? Shouldn’t we measure our digital activity by more than just bits, bytes, shares and likes and also consider rare earths, emissions and ethics? While the Internet will be subject to critique here, we will also brainstorm how clever codes can be the beginning of a more environmentally friendly Internet!

Moderation: Kathrin Prassel
Location: MAKK


Workshop — 2 h 45 min

Introduction to playful programming using Scratch

Raphael Schauff, jfc Medienzentrum

In this workshop we will be using the free and easily understandable online programming interface Scratch to create sprites. Sprites are digital pictures or figures that are designed on a computer for games and short films. At the end of the workshop, participants will make the figure come to life and have it walk across the screen. These sprites could very well be the beginning of someone’s next project!

Is digitilisation a accelerator for climate change?

Paul Suski, Wuppertal Institut

Digitilisation is often touted as a saviour in the fight against climate change: It will make everything more efficient, many things are being shifted toward a virtual space and the digital sharing economy even overcomes the ownership paradigm. But since when has increased efficiency led to environmental protection? How does virtual space materialise? And the sharing economy? More like platform capitalism! We want to sow skepticism to form the foundation for the creative co-creation of an ecological digitilisation.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

Internet and Climate Change

Christian Neumann, utopicode

The internet is growing exponentially, but thanks to increased efficiency, the consequential energy needs have not. But this decade we could make great strides toward the limits of this decoupling. The amount of energy necessary for information and communication technologies causes almost as much greenhouse emissions as aviation does.
This presentation will give an overview of the challenges in this field and present alternative approaches for a more environmentally friendly internet.

Talk (German) — ca. 20 min

Games Collective Khartoum

Carmen Johann and Jonas Zimmer, Cologne Game Lab

The workshop format “Games made in Sudan” was initiated in 2017 together with the Goethe-Institute in Khartoum, Sudan. After just three short years the team now consists of 20 women and men who have made programming, game art or game design their own. The team develops many different kinds of video games and gives workshops in order to make interactive media more accessible for more people in Khartoum. But these young developers still don’t have it easy.

Discussion — ca. 1h

Performative input on positive utopias for democracy and politics, on new societal models and visionary alternative life designs.

Location: MAKK


Play (German)

ERSCHÖPFTE DEMOKRATIE – An evening of theatre as research on utopias

Theaterensemble, WEHR51 – performing arts

This performance presents a segment of the production „Erschöpfte Demokratie“ (or exhausted democracy): an evening of theatre as research on utopias. There isn’t a positive utopia in sight! Can the utopian still be imagined at all? We are not talking about the obvious apocalypses of our future, but about optimistic concepts. Let’s brainstorm new societal models together and develop visionary alternative life designs. For even just thinking about visions is an aspiration in and of itself.



Thursday 17.9.2020 – New talents for Craftmanship

Thursday 17.9.2020 – Less is more

Working sustainably

Concepts for new ways of working did not fist arise during the corona crisis. We Germans are the world champions of productivity, but out of love for the environment and nature, we shouldn’t overdo it. People’s psyche and individual life satisfaction often suffer from it. So how can we work more sustainably?

Die 4-Tage Woche: soziale & wirtschaftliche Vorteile

Ioannis Theocharis, 4-Tage-Woche & Philip Frey, Freeday for Future

Working less and saving the planet? A four-day work week with full compensation would make it possible for us to raise the quality of our life while reducing our emissions at the same time. A four-day work week would initiate a cultural transition away from our stressful work lives, which we try to compensate for with CO2-intensive consumerism. We will show you how it can be done: What are the numbers telling us and how can we make it happen?

Dicussion round — ca. 45 min

Corona as an opportunity for a change of working hours

Mit Ioannis Theocharis und Philip Frey


Vortrag und Fragerunde


Martin Herrndorf, Colabor

Effektiver Klimaschutz erfordert Wandel in allen Bereichen unserer Gesellschaft, auch auf dem Arbeitsmarkt.

Direct democracy for a better climate

Achim Wölfel, Mehr Demokratie e.V.

For many, the environmental protection measures at the federal, state and local levels are not going far nor fast enough. Therefore, with the help of direct democracy, citizens are taking climate policy into their own hands. They are starting initiatives for more bicycle-friendly cities, saving green areas and taking a stand against coal power stations. We are going to take a look at which initiatives already exist and what opportunites there are for each individual to get involved in direct democracy to campaign for a better climate.

Sunday 20.9.2020 – Artivismus & Empowerment

Art is power

Artivism combines art and activism in the public sphere. Art wants to be liked – but it doesn’t have to be – and it refuses to be held back. That’s how it creates free spaces that allow for the development of fresh ideas and new perspectives. Art shakes things up; it is confrontational; and it empowers people to autonomously and confidently make their (critical) voices heard and, most of all, seen. When combined with a social creative will there arises: Artivism.

Moderation: Katharina Klapdor, And She Was Like: BÄM!

Social Distancing Adapter 02

Martin Kaltwasser

A construct with a lightweight design that materialises a 1.5-metre distance to a person’s surroundings will be presented to the public. The 1.5 metres that people are supposed to keep between each other, or social distancing, which is part of the Corona virus health and safety measures, is difficult to gauge in everday life, and most people don’t adhere to the measure. This construction physically shows people what this distance looks like, protecting the person wearing it from direct Covid 19 infections, and it is designed to be internationally recognised.


Workshop (German) — ca. 3 h

Talk (German)

Design & Added Value

Bernd Draser, ecosign / Akademie für Gestaltung – lecturer for sustainability and design

All too often, design is still seen as a discipline of superficial beautification, its significant capability to solve problems is often overlooked. But if we want to economise existing resources in a way that allows future generations to do the same, we need a lot more sustainable design that solves problems instead of creating new ones. This presentation will discuss what makes design sustainable and why sustainability needs design.

Workshop (German)

Co-Creation Workshop: A Design-Sprint to a Ressource-Efficient Product

Annika Greven, Christoph Tochtrop und Julius Piwowar, Wuppertal Institut

As in previous years, our long-time partner, and co-organiser of the festival since 2016, Stadt Land Welt e.V. has been largely responsible for the content-related and, most of all, methodologically planned communication of featured issues for a broad audience.

Complex subject areas regarding environment and development, such as the ecological footprint, the use of resources and climate change, global supply chains, land grabbing, working conditions and human rights, as well as civic involvement, will be presented in an accessible way to visitors with respective theme-based exhibitions. There will also be thematic presentations, workshops and performances.

As co-organiser, Stadt Land Welt is responsible for the educational aspect of the Festival. It will also present its own complementary programme to present to the interested public environmental and development policy issues as they pertain to sustainable design.

Co-Organiser of the ökoRAUSCH Festival

The extensive programme as well as the theme-based exhibition of the interface between environmental and development issues and design have been conceptualised together with Stadt Land Welt e.V.
