Together, we look at the abstraction of Cy Twombly - a conceptual approach through the theoretical abstraction of poems and poetry. How does Twombly visualize certain texts?


We will explore this in the exhibition and then get to work ourselves in the Factory. We will listen to pieces of music or poetry and use them to move into abstraction. We can bring our own music with us and transform it into paintings on paper.

We will also deal with media, such as acrylic paint, charcoal and pencil. Acrylic paint, for example, can be used in different ways, such as glazing or opaque.


What different techniques are available to us here and how do we invent an abstract landscape ourselves?


The workshop is led by the artist Niloufar Shirani.





The open drop-in format “Silver Factory” is designed for adults and teens. Every second Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. it provides the appropriate framework to get creative yourself as the mood takes you. Commemorating Andy Warhol’s famous “Silver Factory” different techniques and themes inspire varied artistic pursuits across media: Whether drawing, painting, working with different printing techniques, dancing; whether analog, digital or hybrid... drop by and let yourself be carried away into the world of colors and shapes in a relaxed atmosphere.




Our digital laboratory Factory holds more info about our artists and artworks as well as ideas for creative projects that you can do at home.
