All parents with their children are welcome to join us each Sunday at 1:30 PM. All workshops take one hour and consist of two parts. First, we visit the up-to-date exhibition together and we talk about the works presented there. During the second part of the workshop we take up manual activities that enable everybody to creatively use their awaken sensitivity and imagination.

5.07.2015 – HYPNOTISED SCULPTURES

During the workshop we will return to sculpture, but we are going to use an unusual material. Our starting point will be a small bozetto, i.e. a draft of a sculpture made by Paweł Althamer. The inspiration to make this artworks was a story which the artist dreamed during a hypnosis session. It was a story about a boy and his dog that the artist decided to illustrate with a small sculpture. We are also going to create our little tales and turn them into objects of art.

12.07.2015 – BIG THINGS

During this workshop we will refer to two works shown in the “Vot Ken You Mach” exhibition, whose central motif is the menorah, a seven-branched lampstand. The first work, Yael Vishnizki Levi’s
“Ivory Tower”, is an installation combining “sacred” (candlestick, tablecloth) and everyday objects (sandbags). In the second piece, a candlestick is an object that tells an unusual story of three sisters. In the practical part of the workshop, we will make our own objects that are very important to us.

19.07.2015 – WHAT THE CITY REMEMBERS

The class will be held on the roof of the museum, which will become our observation deck. It offers a panorama of the Szczepin housing estate, which will be used by us to make a cardboard scale model. In this way, we will make a reference to works shown at MWW. In the “Palimpsest” exhibition, Zbyszek Kordys shows photographs of forgotten cemeteries. Karolina Freino’s work focuses on using Jewish and German gravestones as building material. We will think about what the city remembers while looking at the works.

26.07.2015 – ART GONE SHOPPING

In front of one of the works in the “Vot Ken You Mach” exhibition there is a shopping trolley. Wonder why? We will find out during the workshop. We will also look at works made by artists who use products that can be bought in any shop, and we will see at how they are used. Sometimes they are juxtaposed in an unusual way, sometimes multiplied, and sometimes they are used in a completely new way. We will also go shopping for an object that we will later transform in a creative way.

All the workshops are free, but please register via: edukacja@muzeumwspolczesne.pl
