Description

The artist, who also sees himself as a researcher-explorer, has freely shared his idea with the world through a website, www.dispatchwork.info. The result is a participatory art project that truly deserves the description "participatory," although Vormann describes it more as a "multiplayer game" for public spaces. With interventions in Kazakhstan, Kuala Lumpur, and Cape Town, and from Alaska to Australia, Dispatch Work unites a truly international community. Even the Great Wall of China has already been creatively "repaired" in this way. That children might take the toy bricks with them at some point is not viewed as collateral damage but taken into account. On the grounds of the Völklingen Ironworks, Vormann found predestined conditions to continue his work—whether on his own or with beaming children during the workshop on Erzplatz [Ore Square] on the opening weekend of the Urban Art Biennale 2022.
