Den kulturelle skolesekken, a program for pupils to experience art as a part of their education, chose Papp as a part of their program. We held workshops for kids age 13-16 and they interpreted Papp into the weird world of Lucha Libre; the colorful masked, mexican free wrestling. By remote control, two Papp fought and the game was to push the opponent over the line, and the referee hit the bell. The game was set within a backyard fence with also served as teeth to the character hanging over with special lighting for the stage of the fight. We got very good response from the students and their teachers and from DKS reports and are looking forward to the big exhibition this fall, at DogA in Oslo, starting 10´th of september. Read More...

Issue #198 of French design magazine ÈTAPES arrived in the mail this week. We were so proud to see Papp mentioned in the 10 page article about Pictoplasma, that we translated our part, as best we could. Not perfect, but roughly making sense. Let´s hope the article makes the international issue later on, so we will be able to read the whole story. The article is written by Yolanda Zappaterra and François Le Hérissier. Read More...

We brought Ingrid (7) and Papp and visited Kidspatch in Belgrade at the Kids Cultural Center Majdan. For two days we held a workshop for kids age 7-12 and had very much fun, decorating and creating a city for Papp to discover. During our stay we also got to know the excellent french audio-visual duo Le Club des chats, which we hope to see much more of in future. LUNOtikz also made a popular workshop and together with Tagtool and Animanima, we made the 4th Belgrade Kidspatch edition. A million thanks to our lovely hosts Nana and Relja who seamlessly guided, fed and watered us and made our stay truly memorable! Read More...
TA, or Telemark Arbeiderblad, came and interviewed us at the Berlin Weekly during the Character Walk and Pictoplasma. They stayed for a long time and they really showed interest for our little robot. A little girl were also interviewed about our exhibition and she got some cardboard Papp-skins to decorate at home. We were also pleased that they mentioned our financial contributors Norsk Kulturråd, Vekst i Grenland and Drangedal Kommune, which are of great importance in these kind of projects.
We had a brief talk with Nana from Kidspatch this spring when we were in Berlin and we are now looking forward to participate with a PAPP workshop in Beograd this october.
”Presented since 2008, KidsPatch was started in Belgrade, Serbia and has so far already reached large numbers of young participants, not only in Belgrade but also promptly spreading around Europe and the U.S. through guest appearances at festivals and special commissioned program co-productions.
It is conceived as an innovative laboratory, a mini-festival on the move which consists of series of activities for kids, prevailently in the fields of contemporary music, graphic art, performance and new media. It is a 100% participatory program which utilizes an intuitive and forward-thinking approach to children’s creative education within the context of arts and culture.”

Bard explaining Papp at Berlin Weekly Gallery in Mitte, during the Character Walk. We loved beeing there and talk to all the lovely people visiting. Even though it was supposed to be a window-gallery, we could´nt keep away and kept it open for as much as we could. We only closed when we wanted to see a talk or go see all the other shows. It was simply wonderful and we enjoyed every minute of it!
