CYBERNETICS AND ART
What if the artworks could come to life?
In this workshop we will experiment with three-dimensional figures and combine them with robotic elements. We will create figures that can be placed on motor-driven gadgets and put into moving emotional states by means of a digital tool. How can emotions be represented in motion? Can figures be made to speak through movement alone? We will draw inspiration from the current exhibitions.
The workshop will be run by art historian and educator Dr. Barbara Dabanoğlu. She wrote her doctoral thesis on Cy Twombly’s sculptures and was a research assistant in the art education department at Museum Brandhorst during the exhibition project “Future Bodies from a Recent Past.” She has developed numerous analog and digital workshop formats, and also conceived the inclusive youth project “Kunstlinge” for the Pinakotheken.
ABOUT THE SILVER FACTORY
Every second Thursday evening from 6 to 7.30 p.m., the free drop-in format “Silver Factory” provides the right setting for teenagers and adults to get creative. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous studio, the Silver Factory, various different techniques and themes entice us to take part in varied artistic endeavors across all media. Whether drawing, painting, using different printing techniques or dancing, whether analog, digital or hybrid, come by and be transported into the world of colors and shapes in a relaxed atmosphere.
You will find many other programs in the museum as well as information about the artists and artworks in the collection in our digital creative lab: Factory.
