In the exhibition “Nicole Eisenman. What Happened,” we engage with the giant figures in the artist’s “Procession” (2019) sculpture group. All of her figures tell their own story. We will explore them together and talk about what they trigger in us. And then we take it a step further. What if the artworks could come to life?
In the Factory room we will create our own three-dimensional figures. Then we will experiment with simple robotic elements by placing our figures on motor-driven devices. By means of an application they can be put into moving emotional states. How can emotions be represented in motion? Can figures be made to speak through movement alone?
The workshop will be run by art historian and educator Ricarda Wolf. In addition to her freelance work, she is employed as a research assistant at the Museum Education Center. Her focus is on modern and contemporary art with a special interest in text-image connections, and American art that engages with social and political discourses. Ricarda Wolf studied art history and business administration Tübingen, Munich and Venice.
