Sculpture in Vibration
Program for Kindergarteners & 1st and 2nd Graders

Can be booked individually
During a playful tour of the exhibition we encounter different sculptures: Some artworks are small, others are big; some are made of metal, while others are even made out of foam or objects that people throw away. What does stone feel like? What about metal, which seems to vibrate to create a melody? Equipped with cases and a spirit of discovery, we embark on a journey through seventy years of sculpture in Great Britain. Then we make artworks ourselves out of found pieces, which you can bring from home if you like.

Sculpture in Motion
Program for 3rd to 6th Graders

Can be booked individually
Have you ever seen a sculpture made of foam? Or a bird made out of metal? Movement and sculpture – do they fit together? While movements are always fleeting and changeable, most sculptures are fixed and lasting. During our discovery tour through the exhibition, which shows us sculptures from the last 70 years in Great Britain, we take note of materials, forms, and movements. We encounter artists who worked with metal or stone, who worked outdoors in nature or with their own body. Together we fantasize, discuss issues, and gather ideas. Subsequently we make our own little sculptures full of movement.

70 Years of Sculpture from Great Britain
Program for High Schools

Can be booked individually
Objects of Wonder shows 70 masterworks by British sculptors. The exhibition spans an arch from Henry Moore’s classical sculptures from 1938 to current, provocative works by artists such as Tracy Emin. Based on selected sculptures, the students learn about the most important movements and ideas of the last 70 years and discuss issues such as material, form, and color with the others in the group. What can the genre of sculpture do that painting and photography cannot? Which revolutionary ideas from that time still reflect life’s realities today? After an age-appropriate exchange about diverse issues and the subjective perception of art, we reflect on what we see through creative work of our own.

Workshop on Music and Art
For all ages

Can be booked individually
Art and music: For centuries there has been a close relationship between these two disciplines. Taking individual sculptures in the exhibition as a point of departure, we unlock an artistic cosmos. Can sculptures ring and vibrate? Which materials make high-pitch tones, which ones muffled sounds? Under the professional guidance of a music mediator and with the help of a mobile “orchestra case,” classes can create worlds and musical compositions. In a playful way, the senses are challenged and motor activity trained. Experience sounds, melodies, and rhythm.

Have you ever had a cloud for breakfast? Imagine that this is possible. Imagine you could fly! This happens in the Korean story “Cloud Bread” that we read as picture card theater in front of selected works from the Objects of Wonder exhibition. Our minds full of grandiose ideas, we think together about whether clouds are like foam and see if we can discover them in the exhibition. In the workshop to follow you can let yourself be inspired by the different materials and build your own cloud out of different materials

Many children know soccer, tennis, and the long jump. But what are Olympic sports such as taekwondo, judo, fencing, and gymnastics all about? In cooperation with the German Sports Aid Foundation, groups starting in 5th grade can learn about Olympic sports disciplines from a German top athlete and a trainer team from a Berlin sports club. After exciting technique training, the children try out the sport themselves under professional guidance. Very important: a declaration of consent from the parents and don’t forget comfortable sports clothes!
