We just got back from Germany and Switzerland, where we worked a lot but also ate some tasty European food. We especially liked Turkish imbiss, all the delicous breads, and we even got to try some fancy “one-day” chocolate in Zurich. (Everything in Zurich was crazy expensive - riding the bus cost around $6 (so we walked!) and a cup of coffee is also around $6+ so we had to get out of there really fast...) I saw Bunny eat several sausages.
We were there to attend the opening to an art exhibition in which we had some of our work, The Global Contemporary. Art Worlds After 1989 at ZKM Center for Media and Art Karlsruhe (Germany), and also to do some workshops with the ZKM Education Department. Here is a short interview we did for the ZKM blog while we were there: [ to the ZKM blog ]
The workshops went very well I think, especially the very intense three-day workshop we had with museum education and curator-people. That was fun. Also we did a very short workshop with high school art students that was not-so-intense; basically we just showed some examples of how you can put audio recordings with pictures or animation to make different forms of story-telling and stuff like that. For example:
Bunny and I want to send a special thank you to Henrike Plegge at ZKM for organizing the workshops and all her hard work in making sure our trip to Germany was comfortable, work-efficient, and fun. We learned a lot from everybody we met, especially Uta, Peter, & Ella who let us stay at their apartment the whole time and told us so many wonderful stories that we will never forget. Thank you.
Now some pictures!
