This year the event was spread into 5 days, starting from Wednesday (17.07.) until Sunday (21.07.). On Wednesday was the opening which started at 7 PM up until 1 AM. The next three days the event went on from 12 to 9 PM. Then it closes today, starting from 12 to 6 PM. Not only did you get to see the ongoing 5-day exhibitions, there were also occasional performances or movies. Every class also opened a bar/café near their classes, parallel to the exhibition they are hosting. There were tasty drinks and yummy food, starting from good ol' cupcakes to vegetarian selections. They had classic alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and pretty cocktails. Too bad I was fasting. Haha.

Here are some of Shasti's artworks, there was also an incredible painting alongside it, which you can see here. I love how she arranges the items of her creation and the words that she used to portray her works. Also, there's a video playing in a loop on an iPad next to the David star made out of a string. You can also listen to the video as it has this music, which has such an effect to the movements. Unfortunately, I was unable to portray everything beautifully. And, yes, by the way, that black string wound around a spinning needle is actual human hair...hers, if anything else. She basically spun it herself. You can check out the video here, the spun hair process here and more on the jar of collected goods from nature here.

And, finally, Saku-chan's works. These three huge canvases are my favourite. I was instantly blown away as I spotted them. I love the feminine hue of the ladies and the natural beauty she put into them. Fact: not only did she paint the whole thing herself, she also made the canvases herself. These pictures don't do them justice, 'course. The canvases are actually pretty huge, like 100x200cm, give or take. Though her works seem so simple - compared to other artworks I do not understand - , it contains all these emotions and energy and splashes of colours that I adore. Aside from that, she also put up a lot of drawings as a study of Hanagasumi. Marvelous!
Of course my favourite exhibition was held by the illustrations class. They have walls covered with original comic pages and illustrations. There were also comic books on a huge table, all of which was to my liking, and their magazines, with special Rundgang discount. You could also see a wall, currently on the process of being painted - a mural in progress, just under the 2nd floor, where you can see more artworks. They also had postcards, posters and even t-shirts for sale, some items from Rotopolpress and Wild Wood as well. I was instantly in heaven and couldn't help but to swoon all over. Needless to say, I actually purchased their magazine, Treibwerk. What can I say? It was 5€ off!
