University shows young video art on Ströer's digital city information systems
Waiting for the train while experiencing young video art - this is what passengers can do from June 16th to 23rd 2022 in the underground stations in Bonn and Cologne. The project is an initiative of the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences in Alfter in cooperation with Ströer. On displays animations of students from the second semester of the Art Education Therapy course are shown, which were created as part of the "New Media" module. Whether drawing, collage, stop-motion technique or an animated laundry rack - there were no limits to their creativity in the choice of technique and theme, which also reflects the diversity of the video art presented. The spots can be seen on Ströer's digital city information systems in Bonn and Cologne.
"It's a great opportunity for our students to take their art into the middle of society and make it effective there. On the railway track, it reaches the general public and not just museum visitors," says Professor Andrea Sunder-Plassmann, Dean of the Department of Fine Arts at Alanus University.
"The promotion of art and culture is more important than ever to accompany social developments, to inspire people in their everyday lives and to encourage open dialogue. That is why we support the students with a wide reach by broadcasting their works via our digital city information systems, thus bringing art directly into public spaces," says Alexander Stotz, CEO Ströer Media Deutschland GmbH.
