NIGHTpoets Finn Holitzka (*1995), Samuel Kramer (*1996) and Roland Schneider (*1954) present on stage a poetic reading of age and the GREY IS THE NEW PINK exhibition. In their works, these two spoken word performers, known throughout Germany document the mood of the evening, integrate inputs from visitors, and present freshly-created vibrant and entertaining poems. This firework of slam poetry is supplemented by the lyrical performance of Roland Schneider, wordsmith and senior poet. The event provides an artistic mix of wordplay and pithy commentary by these three poets on the exhibition, ageing and the Night of the Museums.

INTERACTIVE STATION with „Peace of Paper“
7-11.30pm

The voluntary project from Munich "Peace of Paper" holds its first ever popular workshop in Frankfurt. The project brings together a playful idea of fledgling and local people on an artistic level.
At the "Night of the Museums" interactive station, visitors can be creative themselves and stamp out unusual gift papers and cards together with refugees. Alternatively, products created in advance can be taken home. Designing and printing stamps is a simple technique that makes it easy for people of all languages and countries to work together, share ideas, have fun, to get to know each other and network. The products support aid organizations working for people along the escape routes (IHA, Orient Helpers, Sea-Watch).
