Rainer Warzecha & Interglotz Artnetwork - Playground

In a period of more then two decades I've worked on several playgrounds. These "grounds" had been partly set up, and my part was then, to add some unique element there. Mostly clay huts, mosaic-sculptures or pavillons.
In some places I developed the over all planning.

No 1 - and still on our agenda - the Clayvillage in Britzer Garden. Here we spent 15 years of continued work, and go on
No 2 - a garden (at a local youth-help-institution) in my hometown, completly sketched out from my hands
No 3 - a playground siuation beneath Kepler primary school in Magstadt, Baden Wurtemberg
No 4 - working on different schoolyards in Berlin and Weil der Stadt

On a theoretical level I sketched out ideas and concepts for unique "common hands efforts" and interaction with children or so to say "community projects". With that ideas my book (Bauen und Spielen mit Lehm) was released in 1997, at the beginning of my international appearance. In the years past 1997 I took part in international conferences, concerning playground activities, or earth building. See downloads!

The Earth and the Colour and the Sound...

In self-built ensembles of village-like structures we interact with children of all ages, playing and building with earth and serving a magical kind of service toward cultural heritage. Our annual earth-construction-workshop Makunaima, open to anyone - lasts six weeks during summer school holidays and has continued since 1990. See Makunaima at Britzer Garden in Berlin!

With colour we did a lot. The number of murals and graffiti projects - realized up to 2015 - is large. See the murals topic ...
Nowadays me as an artist, who spends quite 'a time' with family - canvases are a good choice!
Music is where we are not only at home, also at work - see and listen, what we do!


Interglotz Art and eARThworks - International

Over the years we got to travel! Buildings on site, community projecs and international conferences, a lot of partners - mostly on playground- or earthbuilding issues gave a call! If you need a speaker or US as a team on location, let us know ... we are still ready to rock!
And there are workshops. Get the news!

Sculpting with Earth - the artificial work with earth is a credo - involving children is a must! Theory? Read more Earthen elements - when structures are built, they get decoration - a magic touch. Joyful beautifying. Tiny sculptures made of clay - any child can touch the ground and build its ART.
Welcome to practise!
