viennacontemporary

Daily program: 22–25 September

With the Family program viennacontemporary offers a playful approach to contemporary art for children from 3 to 12 years of age.

The Contemporary Malraum is a platform for uninhibited painting and encourages young visitors to freely express their fantasy and creativity. This open painting studio will be presented by Dr. Ulrich Jordis, who regularly holds Malraum-sessions at three Vienna-based primary schools. Contemporary Malraum is accessible for the complete duration of the fair during regular opening hours, no registration required.

In 2016 viennacontemporary will collaborate each day with a different Viennese art institution, which will offer its own special educational program for children and their families (all workshops for children aged 3-12):

Why is the dragon considered China’s number one lucky charm? Can tea also be considered as art? And what do a rabbit, a tiger and a monkey all have in common? Unravel the mystery surrounding the Middle Kingdom at our kid’s workshop on AI WEIWEI at the 21er Haus. We dedicate the 21er Haus kid’s workshop at viennacontemporary to Chinese calligraphy and to the Chinese dragon. Create colourful dragon masks or experiment with fire-breathing dragons! We will show you the art of book binding and decorating with Chinese or Latin characters.

The MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art invites children to a workshop at viennacontemporary. What is applied art? What is a museum? Where are the borders between applied art and fine art? Who is inspired by what? Will we find objects at viennacontemporary that bridge the gap between these two areas. We will try to address these questions and more. Afterwards, we will design an object on our own. We will bend, cut, paste, and tweak the highly versatile materials wire and cardboard, which are widely used by designers, architects, and artists. From an art object to a car, almost anything can be created. Ideas are produced in a process, which is facilitated by the art mediators from the MAK.

We grab our children’s art transporters and take them from mumok, Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, to viennacontemporary! Why? Because they are ideal for exploring an art fair. They can roll through corridors easily and one could either sit on them or use their lids as a drawing board. Inside the transporters, there are different art materials, pens and paper as well as other inspiration for an exciting visit to the fair. Let’s see what can be discovered! Aside from that, we also pack our children’s books “Lilli scribbles” and “Lilli blots” and have a few more ideas for some joint action in the studio. Join us!

There is always something going on here at Kunsthalle Wien. Currently, for example, you can join us at Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier, and visit an exhibition on concrete (Beton) and also an exhibition on the French artist and designer Nathalie Du Pasquier. The artistic world of Nathalie Du Pasquier is multi-coloured and her paintings are almost like an explosion of colours, shapes and patterns. Aside from her paintings, you can also discover furniture, fabrics and carpets at the exhibition, which she designed, or other things that she particularly likes, such as vases, tools, or stones. The workshop at viennacontemporary uses Nathalie Du Pasquier’s art as an inspiration. At “Die kunterbunte Druckwerkstatt“ you can experiment with colours and patterns and design your own tote bag. Wear something that you don’t mind getting paint on!
