Das MOBIJUZI Team
As a recognized provider of independent child and youth welfare services, the association Kinder- und Jugendhilfe Frankfurt e.V. has been working with delinquent youths and adolescents since 1985. In the spirit of a humanistic world view that encompasses equal opportunities, tolerance, equivalence and equal rights, the focus of the association's educational work is on the resources of young people. Projects and actions have been created to specifically activate and promote their existing strengths and potential, in order to bolster their self-esteem and enable them to shape their lives free from further delinquency.
One such project is the MOBIJUZI, the association's art workshop. Over two years, the young people have transformed a simple caravan into an impressive work of art consisting of sound and light objects, painting, collage, poetry, and sculpture. A mobile teenager's room, which artistically embodies the subjects of their life environments, their understanding of a safe haven and security, their thoughts on the themes of home and homeland, as well as their hopes and dreams. In the darkness, the MOBIJUZI shines with numerous colorful lamps, attached to the caravan roof and within, inviting visitors to discover a very special place.
The MOBIJUZI project involved almost 80 youngsters and adolescents, artistically and scholastically guided and supervised by Elena Rudolf (social pedagogue/goldsmith), Stephan Baumgardt (social pedagogue/music therapist), Matthias Heidel (sculptor/art therapist) and Dominikus Landwehr (freelance artist/socio-cultural projects).
