Smell Transplant Workshop

Reuterstrasse 7
12053 Berlin

July 14th, 2017 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM



Olfactory artist Klara Ravat will guide you through a night of smelling and odor swapps. Discover with her how human interactions change after you have swapped body odours with another person. By doing this, she hopes to get an insight in how big of a part your unique smell is of your identity. If you were to suddenly smell like someone else, would you still really be you? Would people still behave the same way towards you? Next to this experiment Klara will also give a general introduction about the smells distilling methods.


Workshop programme:


18 - 18:45h: Intro + work-out + body scent collection

Before we can start with transplanting our smells to one another, we will need to make sure that we have enough smell available to share and use. We will follow a work-out session to get you sweating! Klara will then collect your sweat.


After the work-out Klara will give an introduction into the art of distilling and show you how to distill your sweat.


18:45 - 19:45: Distillation + presentation

When everyone’s sweat is distilled, it is time to transplant each others smell on each other. From this moment on you might start to experience some changes.


19:45 - 21:00: Interaction games

To find out how much your smell matters in your interaction with other people, we will do multiple fun games that test your interaction with the other participants.


Klara Ravat and this project is supported by AFK (Amsterdamse Fonds voor de Kunst).
