In this workshop, teachers explore the art of miniature not as a historical subject, but in a theoretical manner, setting off from contemporary artworks diverse in form and shape. We first closely examine contemporary forms of miniature via online games based on detailed images from selected artworks in the exhibition. Then, during the workshop, we forge new compositions by employing different materials such as crayon, watercolor and felt-tip pen and different techniques such as scraping, splashing and drawing, setting off from minute details in the artworks. We discuss our sentiments and observations based on the artworks we have reinterpreted and then share the story of this production. We discover different methods of communicating through art, and learn various techniques of expression through first-hand experience.

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
