Matthias deals full time with endings and fineness throughout the year and uses the Xplore to try something different: beginnings.
In memory of his own distraction at his first Xplore and motivated by the support of Jana, this year he is trying to make it easier for first-time explorers to get started.
Jana is an apocryphal magic fairy with a strong tendency to do nothing. But she renounces this for the duration of xplore: she holds the room in Insecurity Space and assists Matthias in his workshop for xplore newcomers.
Her many years of experience as a systemic family therapist and her clear memory of her own confusing early years in the Schwelle7-universe qualify her for this.
First Time at xplore? Single at xplore?
Xplore is a playground, an experiment, a voyage of discovery outside everyday life, in which the usual rules of polite distance and non-committal coexistence are temporarily suspended. This freedom can also be exhausting and unsettling, especially when you’re new to the playground and everyone else seems to be moving like fish in the water.
In this workshop for new visitors to the Xplore this year, we are trying to make the playground more familiar, more courageous and easier to get to know eachother.
