Come to the Creativity Lab to explore telling your own stories through video. This project was designed by the MoMA Teens Collective, a yearlong after-school program for New York City high school students. This year, the Collective created video works in which the participants dreamt of new worlds and shared their experiences. The Collective designed this space to reflect their many feelings about adolescence, and they chose props and other elements that give the look and feel of a teenager’s bedroom. We invite you to use this space as a TV studio from which to tell your own stories. Use the props on the set and see yourself perform on the live video projection. Watch videos created by the MoMA Teens Collective on the TV monitors for inspiration.
Explore the resource library curated by the online public access station 8 Ball TV to learn about the transformative impact video has had in collective movements throughout history.
