    CANCELLED! WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR

    “Between the years- transitional symbols”


    From child to teenager, from teenager to adult… Everyone goes through the progression of childhood through to adulthood and then old age. But what does it mean to enter new phases of life, and how do we celebrate these transitions? Are there any particular objects or companions which accompany us when making the transition into a new phase and help us master everyday life? Starting off with selected objects from Samoa and Papua New Guinea, which we discover on our visit to the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, we find out about our personal symbols of transition and print them on t-shirts or bags.

    ARTIST´S WORKSHOP

    “Read our book to me! Children and grandparents design a picture book together”
    With Patricia Thoma (artist, Berlin)






    How do children and grandparents spend time with each other? Do they repair bicycles, exchange secrets, or do some cooking together? With the help of artist and book illustrator Patricia Thoma, children and grandparents come together to draw and write about their memories and plans for the future. Afterwards a small book will be bound from the pages produced in this manner.







    PATRICIA THOMA (*1977) is a visual artist, children’s book author and illustrator. She studied at the Stuttgart Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Derby, concluding her Art Studies with a Master of Arts at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. In 2002 she won both the Welde-Kunstpreis and GG-perspektiv art award. She has also received scholarships to work on the Philippines, in Korea, Japan and Taiwan, and was awarded funding for her art projects from 2014-2017 by the Losito•Kressmann-Zschach Foundation.

    “What’s that doing here?”


    Why and how did the exhibits come into the Weltkulturen Museum collection? In the exhibition COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? we look at the origins of objects on show whose provenance is interwoven with colonial history or the history of the Nazi era in Germany.
