In the mornings, the Museum opens exclusively for pre-registered groups of students or kindergarten children who visit the exhibition and then work creatively at the Studio.
1 hour guided tour + 1 hour at the studio
We offer various age-appropriate formats and topics, all referencing the exhibition in content and practice. Dates (Tuesday to Friday) to be agreed upon individually (maximum group size 20 persons; larger groups will be split up).
The arts reflect upon society’s issues, and this exhibition illuminates the changing relationship humanity has with insects: usefulness and damage, curse and blessing, fascination and phobia come to mind. Guided by artists, children and teenagers observe and discuss the works of art, and then do practical work on the subject of insects. The meaning of the disappearance of insects and the loss of biodiversity for our ecosystem will also be discussed.
After their visit to the exhibition, children and teenagers can build imaginative insects from everyday materials and objects found in nature. Artificial and natural materials are combined to create bodies, antennae, legs and wings. Imaginative recycling and inventiveness know no boundaries. Artistic research is fed by information from encyclopaedias and impressions from the exhibition.
After visiting the exhibition, the children and teenagers study the physical shape of insects. Many drawn or printed animals form a swarm. Various printing techniques allow us to fill a large-scale sheet or ream of paper, which is transformed into a collective work of art.
Fee: 50 € per group, plus 2 € per person for materials
