Working with participatory tools to raise solidarity and civic engagement, Stine Marie Jacobsen (b. 1977) designs educational projects that deal with ethics, identity, control, fear and trust. German For Newcomers is a language project and workshop concept by the Danish artist; several workshops took place over the course of one year, and a film was also produced. The role of the student and teacher is shifted in German For Newcomers: expats, immigrants and refugees are invited to improve their basic German language skills by collectively writing useful teaching material for themselves and others. The material is inspired by their own experiences with German culture, language and bureaucracy. The idea for this publication came about after the success of Jacobsens German For Artists, a hybrid, pocket grammar book containing reflections on philosophical aspects of the German language in relation to art (hierarchy).
