Setting up a temporary interactive printing press, OOMK invited families to identify the urban challenges we face using collage and drawing to design new buildings to improve our city. They asked: What are the buildings we want and need? Where are the spaces for health, living, education and play in the city? Using the risograph printer, children and their families produced prints of their designs, contributing to a collective cityscape and distributing proposals to friends and family. 

This event was free, drop-in and suitable for families with children of all ages.

The workshop was programmed in parallel with the 2019 Serpentine Pavilion designed by Junya Ishigami.

OOMK are the 2019 Serpentine Family Artists-in-Residence. Over the course of the year, OOMK will develop _____ in common, a series of workshops bringing together children and adults to explore the idea of the commons – the cultural and natural resources that can be used by all members of society. Through their residency they aim to support and sustain a renewed responsibility for each other and the natural world.

The Serpentine Galleries have signed up to the Family Arts Standards. We welcome families and to help you enjoy your experience we are committed to ensuring we meet these Standards. For more information on visiting the Serpentine Galleries with your family.
