What do bees actually do, while flying from flower to flower all day long? And do they see flowers as we see them? How do they tell flower scents apart? What sort of places are hives? What would happen if not for pollination? We are seeking answers to these questions collectively. Drawing inspiration from Germinator by SKREI with Francisca Sottomayor & Sofia Magalhães, which is exhibited in the Biennial, this workshop starts by addressing the food cycle through bees and honey, and then, we all create small honeycombs. This workshop improves both hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

Materials
3 x A4 size paper (colored or white) to be cut into strips
Drawing paper or A4 sheet
Pencil
Glue
Painting materials (crayons, coloring pencils, watercolor, etc.) 

Capacity: 25 participants
Duration: 40 minutes
Related Exhibition: 5th Istanbul Design Biennial

Through this guided exhibition tour on the Zoom Meeting app, we explore the show with children, diving into an interactive experience.

Access is free, but reservation is required for our workshops to take place from October 20th through November 14th, 2020 as part of the 5th Istanbul Design Biennial, which we prepared in collaboration with İKSV Alt Kat, organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
