Museum Brandhorst The museum building with its long, two-story rectangular structure and multicolored facade of 36,000 vertical ceramic rods was designed by Sauerbruch Hutton Architects and is located in the Kunstareal in Munich's Maxvorstadt district. 23 different colors can be counted and assigned to three color families: pastel shades, bright colors and darker nuances. The rainbow-like color scheme was inspired by the colors of the existing facades in Maxvorstadt. factory-artworks

Body extensions

Become a developer of ingenious ideas for the future in this creative project!

Body extensions I can do alone < 45 minutes Three dimensional design, Drawing Home Body Image, Technology & Media

There are already a wide variety of ways to enhance or improve our bodies today. In medicine, for example, prostheses or pacemakers are used to restore important bodily functions. Our perception can also be changed by certain enhancements—for example, glasses. What new or altered abilities would you like to give your body? For example, how about being able to read the minds of others or take off in rocket boots? Let your imagination run wild.

Untitled The untitled diptych by Laura Owens consists of two enlarged newspaper pages silkscreened onto a canvas. It is a collage where it is difficult to distinguish what has been painted, what has been drawn, and what has been printed, what is “real” and what is “fake.” Sometimes impasto brushstrokes overlay the texts and delicate drawings. The shadows of some brushstrokes are printed, newspaper articles and pictures have been edited and partly replaced by information of a more recent date. factory-artworks

Faux Shop “Faux Shop” is a sculptural installation and at the same time a shop window for a fashion collection. The shop window mimics a women's clothing store. Lucy McKenzie painted the marbled parts of the installation herself in an illusionistic manner. Like moving ghosts, the clothes were either pinned to the walls, placed in the display, or suspended dynamically from wires. The clothes are from Atelier E.B, a collaborative fashion label and research studio that Lucy McKenzie runs with designer Beca Lipscombe. factory-artworks

Collecting surfaces

Create impressions of surfaces using various techniques.

Collecting surfaces I can do alone < 45 minutes Painting, Print, Digital Outside, Home Space, (Hi)stories

The spaces in which we move consist of many layers. Of those that we can see, i.e. whose surfaces we can touch and feel, and those that we cannot see, that remain invisible at first. These “invisible layers” of places or spaces are not “tangible” with our eyes or hands, but we can perceive and feel them in different ways with our bodies. They determine, for example, how we can move, work or communicate in them. Artists who work with these structures make them visible in various ways. In this project, try out several methods yourself to make invisible structures artistically visible!

We can get to know a work of art especially well when we talk about it: what each of us sees and what it triggers in us. Although we all bring something of our own to the encounter with the artwork, it also has an intrinsic effect that we often share. Look closely and look within yourself, let your imagination run wild based on the work, and share your impressions with a group of friends or other students... as fantastic as you feel them to be!

Plexi (adjusted to fit) Each of the photographed boxes is covered with a Plexiglas sleeve, protecting it from possible exposure. Louise Lawler’s photograph of packaging is applied as wallpaper in the museum, matching the proportions of the particular wall on which it is seen. The resulting distortion of the image draws the focus not only to the contents, but also to the space. The photograph thus shows what we usually disregard when looking at pictures: the wall and hence the frame in which art is presented. factory-artworks

Untitled (New York City) The dryness of the dark gray picture looks like a slate, its size resembles that of a school blackboard. On it are irregular white lines and light-gray splashes of color. The lines in “Untitled (New York City)” run directly from the left to the right edge of the picture. Each single stroke registers that the artist has walked along the canvas, and how. We can see when he slows down, when the pressure of the chalk eases or intensifies, how short interruptions during the stride create kinks and loops, and how the lines approach each other, touch, and diverge again. factory-artworks

How well do you know the spaces in your neighborhood?

Untitled (Subway Drawing) For his “Subway Drawings,” Keith Haring used empty advertising spaces, on whose dark background he drew the outlines of his main motifs in one go with white chalk. On the right side of the image are the outlines of two human figures in comic pose and a frieze of crawling babies. Next to the drawing is the poster that was originally pasted beside it: a promotional poster for a 3-D movie entitled “The Man Who Wasn’t There.” factory-artworks

Untitled Jean-Michel Basquiat combined symbols, words, letters and drawings in his picture. The painting is untitled, but because of the unique mixture of recognizable signs and traces you can read much from it as a viewer. With oil paint and oil pastels, the artist painted restlessly diverse references ranging from European cultural history to African-American counterculture. factory-artworks

Space for art

Create a model exhibition space, analog or digital, for an artwork of your choice.

Space for art I can do alone < 45 minutes Drawing, Three dimensional design Home Space

Do all exhibition spaces always look the same? How are works of art exhibited there? What effect does space have on an exhibition? Some artworks are even specially designed for a specific space. The planning of an exhibition is very important in order to present artworks in the best possible way. Curators therefore develop a suitable spatial concept using a model. In this project, experiment with different design possibilities and develop a room concept for a work of art of your choice with the help of the instructions!
