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!
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.
The Struggle of Memory
Deutsche Bank Collection
Art with All the Senses
free program for kindergartens and 1st-2nd graders
Together we will go on a discovery tour through the exhibition and look at works of art made of many different materials. We will see paper and felt, but also salt, spices, and beads. Can we also smell the artworks? We can even touch and taste something from our discovery kit, which allows us to experience art with all our senses. Afterwards, we will create collages with organic materials.
Social Plastic – Upcycled!
free program for 3rd-6th graders
Plastic waste is a big problem for our environment. But what should we do with it? Together we will look at one or two works from the exhibition that will inspire us to talk about recycling. We’ll examine discarded things, talk about their original function and what their “story” might be. No matter where you are, there are always hundreds of things around you to explore, collect, and reuse. It would be great if you could bring some things you find on the way to the PalaisPopulaire, at home, or at school that otherwise would have ended up in the garbage. See if you can make art out of it!
Struggle of Memory
free program for 7th graders on up
The exhibition The Struggle of Memory asks what and how we remember, featuring artworks from the Deutsche Bank Collection by artists from Africa or with African roots. The focus is on different personal, historical, and collective narratives. During a joint tour, we will talk about works that attempt to capture fleeting memories. Each of us has memories and stories that should not be forgotten: Tell us yours—verbally, in drawings, or in writing.
June 5, 9 - 9:45 am or 10 - 10:45 am
free exhibition expedition with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker for 1st-3rd graders
The exhibition The Struggle of Memory is all about remembering. How do you remember special moments or stories? With pictures, smells or maybe even sounds? Together the Berliner Philharmoniker and the PalaisPopulaire invite children 6 and older to explore musical and artistic worlds based on individual works of art. On a musical exhibition expedition, we hum the shape of a work of art, ask ourselves whether material can be translated into a hard or soft sound, and discover how loud and quiet colors are. An exhibition visit becomes a first concert experience that invites us to participate, but also to listen and watch.
"The Color of Lemons" by Kenesha Sneed
September 4 or September 18, 9 - 10:30 am
free reading of the children’s book and workshop for 1st-3rd graders
Based on the exhibition The Struggle of Memory, which is about remembering and telling stories, we will read "The Color of Lemons", the debut picture book by African-American artist Kenesha Sneed. It tells the story of little Eisha, who makes a mold out of clay in the studio of her mother, who is a ceramic artist. The yellow mold makes Eisha especially happy because it reminds her of last summer when she picked lemons with her dad. Suddenly, the mold falls to the ground and shatters into pieces. Kenesha Sneed tells us a story about sadness, loss, and farewell, but also about the power of memory and creativity, which we will then demonstrate ourselves in a workshop. In cooperation with Krumulus bookstore
