Adib Fricke, Berlin, is an artist who works with words and text, which he places in spatial contexts. He has dealt extensively with neuroscientific issues and with our ability to act creatively. From this he developed his training programme "Kreative Praxis" (creative practice). In workshops and individual training sessions, he uses practical exercises to show us what we can do to come up with new ideas. At the SOPA, he accompanies students in the "Kreatives Schreiben und Texten" programme at the very beginning of their studies and then again at the end as they prepare their final thesis.
