In the distant future, the earth may mostly be inhabited by robots, robots experiencing thrilling adventures. With cameras, tripods and lighting equipment we will imagine them by creating exciting videos using specially-built film sets. What will the robots experience? What will their world(s) look like and what will it sound like?!
In April 2019, the Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier will once again become an innovative learning and meeting place, this time transforming into both a video studio and an exhibition venue, focusing on developing individual stories and experimenting with film. In a series of workshops, four film sets will be used to create a common cinematic narrative on “When Robots Dream”, where children are invited to realize their creative ideas.
The exhibition project Space for Kids. When Robots Dream has been developed by the art education department of Kunsthalle Wien in co-operation with artists Gabriele Edlbauer, Andrea Konrad and Michèle Pagel.
The short films created in the workshops are constantly uploaded on the “Space for Kids” YouTube channel and can be viewed there.
Space for Kids
Space for Kids is the prototype for a new exhibition format that seeks to meet the needs and perspectives of children. With the aim of introducing kids to contemporary art as well as to making art themselves, the ever-changing exhibition combines action and contemplation, production and reception, as well as visual and other forms of art experience.
Kunsthalle Wien is an institution that actively promotes integration and education informed by artistic thinking and strategies. The institution has been calling attention to this issue by way of a series of projects focusing on the collaboration between children, young adults and artists. The goal of these projects is to demonstrate the potential of contemporary art, and to stimulate creative and intellectual exchange.
