Drawing Machines

A Drawing Machine for at the Home
Inspired by Jean Tinguely’s Méta-Matics, we show you in the video, how to inject movement and chance into drawing. There have to be two of you. Otherwise all you need is: 1. a firm drawing board, 2. a sheet of paper and 3. a pen or pencil.
One of you holds the board and paper, the other the pen or pencil. And then you both start hopping on one leg while drawing! A tree, say, or a flower, a wheel, a face…
Let the random lines and the pictures they produce surprise you!

Kinderclub TV

Kids' Film Project | Best of Kinderclub TV 2019 – 2020
How do Kinderclub kids respond to the many different exhibitions at Museum Tinguely? What do they think of the individual works? For each new show at Museum Tinguely we produce a new episode of Kinderclub TV complete with interviews, performances and scenes of the children in the museum. The resulting ‘child’s-eye view’ of past exhibitions can be watched in the museum foyer and on our website.
