Every Sunday Family Workshops

Education, Children, Families
Od 07.06.2015 do 28.06.2015

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.


During the workshop we will pay the first visit to the newly opened exhibition titled Vot Ken You Mach? It features works concerning contemporary Jewish identity and, more generally, contemporary European identity. Our starting point will be Krystyna Piotrowska’s works that show untypical portraits. The fragmented faces differ significantly from what we are used to. Is the artist trying to communicate that our egos are also fragmented and can be arranged in various ways? In the practical part, we will make our own unusual self­portraits.

14.06.2015 Mother’s Tongue

In Haim Maor’s work titled Mame Lushen (Mother’s Tongue), the artist draws upon his memories of his mother. He embroidered the eponymous inscription on a scarf that used to belong to his mother. During the meeting, we will analyse this work alongside others that refer to the figure of mother. The word “mama” sound similar in many languages. In the practical part of the workshop, we will make personal inscriptions­magnets made up from letters we associate with our moms.

21.06.2015 HYHYHY

This time our point of departure will be Eli Petel’s work under the title HYHYHY. Petel used the Hebrew word “היהיה”, which has many meanings. It refers to God’s name, it can express doubt whether a certain phenomenon will actually happen, it means “long long time ago” and it can simply signify a mocking snigger. The artist embedded the word into a curtain made of glass beads, as if he was trying to say that words sometimes obscure the meaning instead of revealing it. During the workshop we will look at other artworks that in various ways use words as decorative elements. In the practical part, we will make our own decorative curtains.

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