Praxen / Grundlagen - Intervention/ Participation (Introduction) 2.0 SemStd. [GO]

Location: Mix Media 2, 3.Stock, VOZ

The workshop will take place in Penzing - based on a study for Public Art Vienna Wien by Barbara Holub/ transparadiso. We will try out first artistic-urban interventions at one of the three locations that could be future focal points for projects for art in public space in Penzing. We will conceive small actions/ urban interventions and artistic objects, which we will use on site.

During the preparation of the workshop we will discuss the following questions: What do we want to achieve in the three sites? How can we activate underestimated qualities of the public space in these sites and possibly link them? How do we want to address the local people and organisations/ institutions?

The workshop will be accompanied by 3 performative walks organised by transparadiso for KÖR Wien/ Public Art Vienna , for which we also invited international artists (see: The participation in these walks of the students is optional, but they will provide an exciting and unusual insight into the district.

The workshop will teach and explore basic skills to engage with artistic practices in public space, based on current topics for a specific urban context.

The students will show the interventions of the workshop in a small exhibition in VOZ 7: here we will try out all steps of an exhibition - from the spatial presentation of the works to a folder with project text. In addition, the projects will be communicated to Public Art Vienna and to the district; and we will look into possibilities for a public presentation of the projects.

We will discuss the exact programme of the workshop.
