About colors and shapes

Duration: 1 hour

Please register at: or at (030) 20 20 93 19

Colors and shapes are everywhere. In nature, in the city and in the exhibition “Ways of Seeing Abstraction” in the PalaisPopulaire. Everything there revolves around abstract works of art. Abstract, that means without an object. So abstract art is created through the use of colors, shapes and lines. Which colors do you like, do you have a favorite shape? We explore the exhibition, talk about the pictures and let ourselves be inspired by particularly beautiful works of art for our own abstract collages.

What you need:

- A4 white drawing paper

- pencil

- Colored pencils

- Scissors and glue

- colored paper (e.g. construction paper or origami paper)

What you can prepare:

Clear the table you are sitting at and lay out the materials before the workshop begins.

Abstract imagery
Free online tour for schools from 7th grade via zoom
Duration: 1 hour

Please register at: or at (030) 20 20 93 19

The diverse possibilities of abstract art will be demonstrated in some works by contemporary artists in an exciting way during a joint digital tour. This variety of shapes and colors gives rise to questions about the possibilities of painting and drawing, photography and collage, their different effects and meanings. In a subsequent practical work, in which the aim is to combine different shapes and colors, the experiment of abstraction becomes a self-experiment.

What you need:

- A4 or A3 white drawing paper

- pencil

- Colored pens: felt-tip pens, colored pencils or e.g. wax painters and / or watercolors

- colored paper: e.g. construction paper, wrapping paper, candy paper

- Scissors, glue and ruler

What you can prepare:

Clear the table you are sitting at and lay out the materials before the workshop begins

ein Musiker zeigt ein Saxophon für die Kindergruppe in der Ausstellung

with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker
for kindergartens, 3– 5 years old
Monday, October 4, 2021, 9–9:45 am and 10:15–11 am

Colors and shapes are everywhere. In nature, in urban areas, and in the many paintings in the exhibition at the PalaisPopulaire. Artists often use shapes and colors to represent what they see, feel, and think. But can pictures also make sounds, be as quiet as a summer wind or as loud as a thunderclap? The Berliner Philharmoniker and the PalaisPopulaire invite families with children 5 and older, with and without disabilities, to a musical exhibition expedition. A visit to the exhibition becomes  a first concert experience that invites you to participate, but also to listen and watch.
