Isaac Julien: PLAYTIME
Works from the Collection Wemhöner
for kindergartens and 1st–2nd graders
When you look outside from your classroom, what do you see? A window is like a picture within a picture. When it’s closed, it separates us from the world outside. When it's open, it can be like a connection to the outside world! For hundreds of years, artists have found window views exciting – Including contemporary artist Isaac Julien, who has an exhibition at PalaisPopulaire. After looking at his photographs together, we’ll draw or make our own window pictures with a view.
for 3rd–6th graders
Together we will go on a discovery tour, look at photographs, and watch the film by Isaac Julien. Art, work, values, and money play a big role in the film. What is valuable to you? How can you tell the difference between a real banknote and a fake one? Then we will design a banknote ourselves. Glued, collaged, or painted – in the end perhaps it will be more imaginative and colorful than any other currency!
“3, 2, 1 – Anna und Oma zählen los“ by Mari Kanstad Johnsen
May 8 or May 15, 2023, 9–10:30 am
Free book presentation and workshop for 1st–3rd graders
Numbers, numbers, numbers! In “3, 2, 1 - Anna und Oma zählen los" Mari Kanstad Johnsen tells the story of Anna, who desperately wants to have a cuddly toy at her grandma’s house during the summer vacations, but it costs 50 crowns. Grandma makes a deal with her: If Anna takes care of the pets and plants in the 5 neighboring houses, 1 snake, 2 rabbits, 3 birds, 4 tomatoes, and 5 fish, she will get 10 crowns for each house. Isaac Julian’s video work at the PalaisPopulaire is also about numbers and money – and art. Based on this work, we plunge like Anna into the adventure of picture book cinema with excitingly wild illustrations followed by a workshop.
In cooperation with Krumulus
Art, Money and History
May 3 or May 10, 2023, 9 am–12 pm
free art and finance workshop for 7th–10th graders
In the video work Playtime, the artist Isaac Julien tells of the global interconnectedness of capital through the stories of six protagonists who are active in both the worlds of art and finance. While Julien artistically explores the question of how capital can be visualized, we would like to devote ourselves to the history of money with the help of bank employees after visiting the exhibition, because one thing is for sure: For day-to-day life, we need money. But what were things like in the past? How did things develop from bartering to today’s money and financial system? In this workshop, the individual stages of the development of money will be explained in an age-appropriate, playful, and dialogical way.
On Art, Money and Global Financial Systems
June 14 or June 21, 2023, 9 am–12 pm
free art and finance workshop for 11th graders on up
In the video work Playtime, the artist Isaac Julien tells of the global interconnectedness of capital through the stories of six protagonists who are active in both the worlds of art and finance. While Julien artistically explores the question of how capital can be visualized, we would like to devote ourselves to the question of how money circulates in the global financial system with the help of bank employees after visiting the exhibition. How is this system structured? What is a capital market? In this workshop, an overview of the instruments, actors, and historical developments of the international financial system will be provided in an age-appropriate, playful, and dialogical way.
