Art Workshops for Groups
The MAC’s Art Workshops offer visitors of all ages an opportunity to enhance their aesthetic experience by trying out various techniques, media and materials related to a concept or theme inspired by the exhibitions presented. By encouraging artistic expression, they help develop participants’ desire and ability to create. In addition to these objectives, the workshops help demystify the creative process and make contemporary art more accessible thanks to their hands-on approach.

This multi-layered activity will offer participants insight into various issues contained in the video work Der Lauf der Dinge, 1987, by artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss. More specifically, they will produce an installation with a host of assorted objects that will be arranged so as to create a giant domino that will likely feature impromptu effects and continuous movements. A video recording will attest to their inventive tricks and experiments.
