- Time of day6:00 PM until 7:30 PM
- Target groupsAdults, Teenagers
- RegistrationFree of charge | No registration necessary | Join in at any time
How do we see ourselves and others? The portrait has always been a subject of interest to artists. The emergence of new reproduction techniques, such as new printing processes and photography, expanded the creative possibilities. Since smartphones have made a camera available to us almost anytime and anywhere, our relationship to the selfie or the image of others has changed dramatically. In the exhibition and in conversation with each other we will refine our perception of images of people.
In the practical part, we will then decelerate the process of taking pictures and arrive at new results away from the smooth surfaces and images on our smartphones and computers. Explore your own picture or the image of others with us by alternating between touching, drawing, photographing, printing and collaging.
The workshop will be run by artist and art educator Janna Jirkova. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich and has since worked as a freelance artist at the interface of new media, installation and performance. Since 2018 she has also been working as an art educator at various museums in Munich.
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.
