Depot Basel developed the concept and teamed up with Bareck. In their showroom on Mulackstrasse a selection of works that have been exhibited in Depot Basel, or have been created there since Depot Basel‘s was founded in 2011, are presented.

"Wildes Denken" is a workshop for improvisation, for using creativity spontaneously and practically. A group of invited participants will – within 3 days - create "Objects for the table" out of (residual) material, provided by Depot Basel and Baerck.

The focus is more on the experiment and the direct, spontaneous making, and less on a reflected and structured design process.

Just as the anthropologist Claude Lévi- Strauss has written in "La Pensée Sauvage" : „The hobbyist does not invent entirely new things, but he improvises and combines materials that he has at hand.“
