Kunstautomat – art vending machine

A new Kunstautomat – art vending machine – has been installed in the Christchurch Arts Centre and is the first of its kind to make its way to these shores.

The machine is the invention of German artist Lars Kaiser who has been repurposing old vending machines in Europe for several years

Instead of junk food or drinks, the Kunstautomat is filled with small art that people can buy for $6 a pop.

“For that price you get a piece of handcrafted art which could be a painting, tiny sculpture, photograph, drawing, a cartoon or any other type of art you can imagine.
