Meningsvorming met animatie
Sinds 2002 geeft Stichting HOLY animatieworkshops voor jongeren op het snijvlak van meningsvorming, ICT en creativiteit. Tijdens HOLY animatieprojecten worden jongeren met prikkelende inhoudelijke thema’s als duurzaamheid en tolerantie uitgedaagd om hun mening te verbeelden in online animatieclips. Door hun clips te delen, krijgt hun stem een plek in de publieke ruimte.
'Clips for Matter' is a collaboration between the Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) and HOLY Animation.
Within this project we bring youngsters (12-16 years old) from the border area of Germany and the Netherlands together to create short clips about the status of the world's resources. Starting point is the HMKV media art exhibition 'World of Matter', which is shown from March till July 2014 at Dortmunder U in Dortmund, Germany. The exhibition shows the research results of the international art and media project of the same name, which investigates primary materials (fossil, mineral, agrarian, maritime) and the complex ecologies of which they are part.
The youngsters are actively engaged in the matter by visiting the exhibition in Dortmund. During the visit they will mingle and discuss their thoughts and solutions. Afterwards they will creatively express their solutions through an animation in a workshop using the HOLY Animator.
The Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) in Dortmund is a platform for the production, presentation and communication of contemporary and experimental (media) art. ‘Media art’ is understood as contemporary art that is concerned both in content and concept with the present-day world, which is strongly characterized and radically altered by new media and technology. Since its inception in 1996, the HMKV has staged numerous exhibitions, programmes of film, video, music and performance, workshops, lectures and conferences in various cities in Germany and abroad. The HMKV therefore occupies a unique position in North Rhine-Westphalia – and in Germany. In 2013, HMKV's exhibition SOUNDS LIKE SILENCE was awarded the "Exceptional Exhibition 2012" prize by the German Section of AICA (International Association of Art Critics).
