15.09.2015, Berlin | Under the motto “SKULPTUR PUR!” (Nothing But Sculpture), young art lovers and their parents are invited to take over the Bode Museum for a day: on the Children’s Day on October 11, 2015, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The children can choose from a variety of activities related to the artworks in the largest sculpture collection in Europe, comprising unique treasures from late antiquity to around 1800.
From a theater workshop to dance and music to meeting Emperor Frederick himself – the water-castle museum on the Museum Island misses no opportunity to bring the sculptures alive and inspire the young visitors to look, get inspired, and engage in DIY activities. While the sculptor’s studio offers a chance to get creative with wood and clay, you can learn “how a sculpture is created” and how its “gravity-defying balance” helps it stand. There will, of course, also be plenty of drawing courses, since paper is, after all, known to come before “marble, stone and bronze.” Last but not least, the two moderators Christina and Benjamin, of the “Junge Kaiser,” will make sure that things get moving in the kingdom of sculptures.
