How to draw a Manga figure? Drawing workshop with Marie
How do you draw a Manga figure? Marie showed us how at the 2006 Open Day – and we were amazed! Particularly the young ones showed great patience in practicing their skills and they tapped into some serious talent… After the great success of last year, we’ve invited Marie back to host another workshop.
The young Berlin illustrator Marie Sann has already won various Manga drawing competitions even before she had her first publication. She illustrated her first Manga volume Sketchbook Berlin for the Tokyopop Publishing House in cooperation with Guido Neukamm. Currently working as a freelance artist on new projects, she has recently begun a three-year course to become a graphic designer.
3 pm. until 6 pm

Opening of the photography exhibition by Uchimura Kôsuke: "Streets and People in Berlin and Tôkyô“
„Berlin and Tôkyô – hardly anybody, and particularly those who know both cities well would spontaneously think that these two metropolises share any commonalities. But to me they are like they’re brother and sister.“
Tôkyô was the preferred motif of Uchimura’s pictures before he traveled to Berlin for the first time in 1984. And since then he has taken some photos of remarkable scenes and objects from both cities and placed them alongside each other.
Shown until September 28, opening hours:
Mon – Thu 10 am – 5 pm, Fri 10 am – 3:30 pm.
