  • Summary

    It is coming back, a wonderful messy afternoon covered in paint.
    It is going to be messy. It is going to be beautiful.We are bringing back the painting workshop, where the body are the brush.
    We will spread out a big canvases on the floor. Where you can

    Full description of concept

    One time event/workshop at The borderland, where we for a few hours co-create a big painting, with nothing but our bodies, music and paint.
    Every one can join. Come and leave a footprint, hand print, a butt print, boob print, whatever print you can think of, using only your body, or someone else's body, of course with consent. Express yourself. Get down and dirty. There is just the one rule. Paint with your body. 

    Last year we were quite a few people getting down and dirty. some for hours, others just for a few minuts. Everything is fine all are welcome.

    10 x 2.1 meter of canvas.
    This time i’ll like to cut up the canvas in smaller pieces, afterwards and give all the artistes a piece of the canvas to take home. Somehow it all ended up looking like a part of the universe. So it should work in all scales.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    There will be no matter out of place, maybe a paint stain or two, but we'll do out best to contain the paint on the canvas and on the groundcover.

    Budget overview

    Canvas 1.500 kr
    Paint 2.000 kr
    Ground cover/tarps 0 kr ( we'll use the onces we had from last year)
    Two big buckes to clean paint of with 200 kr
    mics 300

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    Yes, fairly easy. Some helpers on the day would be very much appreciated.

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.


    • Do you need electricity from the grid? Nope

    • Will there be light? Nope, only daylight

    • Will anything burn? Nope

    • What is your audio footprint? A small one. we'll have a wireles speaker playing music while painting.

    • Forces of nature We'll have the workshop when suited. It is depended on good weather, but it is a onetime event, and it is not time, and space dependent.
