As an artistic director of the model project Learning Community, Luzi Gross, together with Caroline Brendel, the artsprogram and the initiative welt_raum, created a meeting place for refugees, students and other neighbors in Friedrichshafen. In workshops the potentials of artistically inspired strategies for new ways of living together were tested and reflected. In her master thesis she focused on the question how artistic strategies intervene in social processes and what role curators take in this context.
