The model for the 00:00 Mobile Theater from 1972 is featured in the current exhibition at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood. A New Creativity: Man and Machines was curated by Sylvia Lavin with the UCLA Curatorial Project.
"From the first house R.M. Schindler designed using a drafting machine to contemporary architects who design digital drawing devices instead of houses, The New Creativity: Man and Machines examines creative practices in relation to the social and technical complexes that support and constrain them. While all forms of art making have been radically transformed by the advent of digital technologies, spaces of creative production are the most telling symptoms of how these transformations reflect deeper changes in the understanding of creativity itself.
The New Creativity brings together a rich array of designs, documents, and devices that visitors will not only be able to view but that they will be able to use and engage as means of testing their own productive inclinations. This experiment in contemporary creativity will take place within the landmark Schindler House, which is perhaps the first building in Los Angeles to constitute an experiment in creative space itself."
Mobile Theater is a demountable theater with thrust stage and seating adaptable to legitimate performances with limited scenic requirements, and to events such as rock concerts. Read more about Mobile Theater on our project page.
