CYBERNETICS AND ART
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 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 exhibition “Nicole Eisenman. What Happened” and the examination of her sculptures and works.
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.
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.
