We have a sponsor for this event which is helping to keep costs down. You will see their name on our playing card decks for the event and on wall posters and on every blog post and in our sidebar. We love Sponsors and are grateful to Stadtsparkasse Muenchen for helping us with this project.
Details of the happening:
You will have the opportunity to purchase 1 deck of Munich Artists playing cards and will be given one deck of blank white cards. The blank cards are to be used at the event. You can open your Munich Artists Playing Cards or keep them to gift away for Christmas.
At the event, we will have 3 (three) rooms.
Room 1 is for video streaming and watching performances. There are bleachers to sit.
Room 2 is for Playing Cards – The room is completely empty of furniture.
In room 2 artists can participate in creating a large 3d sculpture using their blank cards OR they can take their blank cards and draw artwork on them. It is up to them. If they want to draw artwork, please bring markers (edding/promarkers) We may be filming Room 2 with a Webcam to stream after the event.
The space has concrete floors. If you are going to be spending lots of time drawing, you will need to bring a pillow or chair/drawing board BUT you can also meander to room 3 and sit on a pillow.
Room3 is for singing on a small stage, reading stories to the people in the room, talking, eating, sitting on benches and drinking. This is not a quiet room. If you decide to read a story out loud in here, you better have a good stage presence to get people’s attention. If you want to do a monologue, we can schedule it for room 1.
Food and drinks will be located in room 3 OR in the lobby. There is a bar in the lobby.
We will have access to the main lobby and the bathrooms. The video loop of our 500 Artists Say Hello will be in the lobby and will be displayed during Kunst in Sendling. (the week before.)
Room 1 – Video Room – This room has bleachers. I will create a video using video clips from artists who send a video clip to me. The video will be entitled “How to play with cards.” The video you send does not have to be card related. You can put the video clip in my dropbox for this project. Deadline for video clip submissions to be included is October 1, 2016. Please submit a clip 30 seconds or less.
If you want to do a reading or monologue in Room 1 we can schedule it. Please let me know in advance so that I can create some kind of background in the loop for the time that you are doing your thing.
Room 2 – Playing Cards Room – We will have lots of space to create. This is a big empty hall. If you have something you want to create with playing cards, please let me know. You can create sculptures made from blank playing cards and bring them to show. I will have the cards before the event and will be happy to have you pick them up at Frauenstrasse 18. Playing Cards will be picked up at the event.
If you want to make a short video, you also have the opportunity to do this in Room 2.
Room 3 – Food Room – Everyone gathers where there is food. This room has low benches with cushions. It is really comfy and a great place to hang out. This space has a small stage which can be used for flash fiction reading. I will ask the artists working on munichstories.com if they will read one of their stories that they have created during the challenge month (September 12 – October 15th)
If you want to sing or dance or perform, please let me know and we will work something out.
If you are a conceptual artist and you want to create something interacting with the card sculptures and the space, please let me know.
Unlike 500 Artists Say Hello, we don’t have an installation display on a wall BUT the walls are concrete so you are welcome to bring an A4 print of your artwork that we can tape onto the wall. This will be an organic display. I will not curate it. You are artists. I know you will make it look good. ( I need to double check that we can tape things on the wall.)
