Dispatchwork: a Project by Jan Vormann

Born in 1983 in the city of Bamberg, Germany, the Berlin based artist Jan Vormann initiated a creative and amusing project that would be followed by people around the world.

"Dispatchwork" consists in using plastic bricks, usually 'Lego' ones, to repair damaged parts of buildings and other constructions such as monuments.
The can be found filling cracks on walls or missing parts of stair steps, or even a column's capital.

The artist maintains a website where one can see the photos taken in several cities from around the world from works completed by Jan Vormann and by all those who have joined and continue to join the "Dispatchwork" project.

You too can start your own "Dispatchwork", either by yourself or gathering a group of friends.
This is also a good initiative for schools and a way to give more colour to our cities.

Jan Vormann studied History of Art and Care of Architectural Monuments at the Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg (2003-2004) and Arts and Sculpture at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee.
