ViennaSpace for Kids. Footprints in a Sea of Data
A project of Kunsthalle Wien’s art education team in collaboration with The Golden Pixel Cooperative (with contributions by Enar de Dios Rodríguez, Nathalie Koger, Marlies Pöschl, Simona Obholzer, Katharina Swoboda and Lisa Truttmann)
Space for Kids is a continuously evolving and interactive exhibition format that aims to meet the needs and perspectives of children, while also offering adults a fascinating and participatory frame of reference.
For its fourth edition, Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz is transformed into an artistic research laboratory. Visitors to the exhibition can playfully discover new perspectives on our environment in different workshops based on various artistic methods together with the invited artists from The Golden Pixel Cooperative.
We are constantly surrounded by photos of different environments: depictions of crystal clear lakes, images of dunes or snapshots of traffic congested streets wander across our screens. But where are these images stored? How do they reach us? What is their ecological footprint? In a setting that interweaves analog and digital media, visions for a more ecological future are jointly developed – artistically and discursively.
The Golden Pixel Cooperative is an association for moving images, arts and media, active within both exhibition and cinema contexts. It supports anti-racist, queer-feminist, documentary, and essayistic works and their authors.
Space for Kids Vol. IV is intended as a prologue to the exhibition The Art-Nature Lab or the Mushrooming Cabinet of Wonders, which will follow in 2022 and explore the ecology of cities.
