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.

01.03.2015 THE PINK SIDE OF THE MOON

The workshop will give us the first chance to visit
the newest MWW exhibition titled “Earth”. First we
will look at the Earth from space. After that, we will cast a glance at the Moon, the Earth’s faithful
companion. Do we really know what it looks like,
or do we only think we do? There is something
extraordinary about the Moon, something that has always inspired poets and painters. Having
examined its depictions in art, both quite old and very modern, we will make our own colourful lunar
images.

8.03.2015 MONUMENTS OF PRIVATE MEMORIES

Igor Grubić is a Croatian artist whose works are featured at “Earth” exhibition. One of them, a film
titled “Monument”, shows forgotten concrete monuments emerging from their surroundings as
if they were dreamlike objects or images from space. During the workshop we will look at various
monuments, both as carriers of information and concrete artistic forms. In the practical part, we will
make our own monuments commemorating important moments from our lives.

15.03.2015 ACTION EARTH

As part of the meeting, we will reenact Wanda Gołkowska’s action, in which she exchanged
“earth” with artists from all over the world. In this context, we will ponder the various meanings
of the term “earth”, understood as soil, land, homeland, and planet. We will build on this multitude
of meanings while writing letters to the inhabitants
of San Sebastian, Wrocław’s partner city in the European Capital of Culture programme. Our letters and earth samples will be actually sent to the
Basque Country. In June, during the “Bridge
to San Sebastian” action, the answers from Spain
will appear on Sikorski Bridge in Wrocław.

22.03.2015 EXERCISES FOR LOOKING

During the workshop, we will look closely at earth/soil and what is hidden inside it. Soil may be
called earth’s stomach, and its contents are mysterious and fascinating. As part of the meeting
wewill visit the exhibition on the fifth floor, and later
we will use special multi­colour sheets to make
our own underground compositions.

29.03.2015 BODY – CLAY

According to many myths and religions, man was originally made from clay. Due to its plasticity,
the body is often compared to clay. We will check it out first­hand by tightly covering our faces and
hands with clay. This time, we will not just look
– we will also feel the changing structure of the
material with all our bodies.
