'Marmor, Stein und Eisen bricht' by Mauricio Dias and Walter Riedweg

In their project ‘Marmor, Stein und Eisen bricht’ (Marble, stone and iron breaks) Mauricio Dias and Walter Riedweg give pupils of the Förderzentrum München Ost, a special school in Messestadt, an opportunity of inscribing their personal history in the history of the school. In association with the school staff, the artists will help pupils to create an innovative form of Art for Architecture that will become an integral part of the school building. The situation is special in that, although the work of the school has already begun, its building is still being designed and will not be ready for use until 2005. At present, the teachers and pupils occupy provisional quarters at the local elementary school. Dias and Riedweg realised the project in collaboration with the pupils in several stages, beginning with a series of workshops in the summer of 2002. At these, objects important to individual pupils were collected as the basis of a school archive. This is will be part of the new building in 2005.
