October 21, 2012, 12–5 p.m.
This is the question asked at this year’s Children’s Day at the Bode Museum – a multifaceted topic! On October 21, 2012, from noon to 5 p.m., children especially aged 5 to 12 are invited to discover the museum’s collection of sculptures and statues that span more than 1,000 years of history. A variety of guided tours suitable for children, which form the core of the program, invite the children to immerse themselves in the Bode Museum “universe,” to focus on and explore the museum’s works of art.
Besides this more direct approach to art, a museum quiz will take the little visitors on an informative search for clues throughout the entire building, a kind of moated castle that is a treasure trove of art. The educational events will be accompanied by a varied program featuring theater, music, dance, magic and small activity stations in the exhibition halls where the young visitors can become artists themselves. Perceiving and understanding, the joy of discovering the unique works of art for the first time or anew: the program of the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museums-Verein is designed to whet the appetite of both children and families for museum education, spiced with lots of fun and entertainment.
The program has a two-fold focus: the different materials of the sculptures and statues, from wood to stone to bronze, and the different thematic areas, the “worlds of art,” from the ancient world of the gods to Christian art to more “earthly” topics such as everyday life and festivals. More information on the program is available here.
It is an important goal of the Schering Stiftung to get children and young people interested in culture and excited about art. This is the second time we have supported the Children’s Day at the Bode Museum, since it provides an age-appropriate approach to different fields of art and makes art a sensuous experience and intelligible for both young and older visitors.
