Museu Kampa's Interactive Programs

Coincidence takes centre stage

Suitable for: elementary school, secondary school

How much does the artist influence his own art? What happens when the artist leaves the final shape to coincidence? For some of the artists in the Sixties coincidence was the main determining factor and some of their works can be seen even here, in our museum. Hugo Demartini used to throw various geometric objects up in the air, watching them falling and then observing the accidental shape they took after landing on the ground. Milan Grygar used mechanical animal toys and let them walk on paper to leave traces. The shape and direction of Zdeněk Sýkora's lines was determined by a computer and its randomly chosen numbers.

So even coincidence can make art and we will also try it ourselves during the workshop!

Let's order this!

Or shall we look into other programs?
