In episode 3 of the Schering Stiftung Podcast, we focus on the program Max – Artists in Residence at Schools, a cooperation with Stiftung Brandenburger Tor.
In 2020, the Schering Stiftung provided financial support to the residency of the Mexican-German artist Vanessa Farfán at the Carl-Humann-Elementary School in Prenzlauer Berg.
In this conversation, Caroline Armand (Program Director, Aesthetic Education and Literature, Stiftung Brandenburger Tor) explains why aesthetic education in schools is so important, when Max was founded, and how the program has evolved since. Vanessa Farfán talks about her daily work in a studio that is located right in the middle of the school and her projects with the students, and about how much the children as well as she herself benefit from this exchange.
With this episode, we want to provide an insight into our projects in the field of cultural education, which are particularly dear to our hearts, and it is with great joy that we at the Schering Stiftung support these projects.

The artist Vanessa Farfán deals with the effects of digitalization on human cognitive processes. This year's focus will be on the influence of digital communication on the perception of physical space. With the students, not only will the experiments with light and shadow be continued, but the spatial possibilities of these elements will also be investigated. Vanessa Farfán is a second year scholarship holder at Max.Close
