Creative project for children as part of the exhibition "Scenes of Life – A Japanese Screen and its (hi)stories”



[Translate to English:] Modul 1

At the center of our special exhibition, "Scenes of Life“, is a Japanese screen. This screen tells many stories of different people and objects painted in scenes that show the hustle and bustle on a street in Japan 400 years ago. Right now, streets all over the world are deserted, and the museums are closed. Take advantage of the empty street in front of your door and imagine street life in the future. What will it look like? Will cars fly through the air? Will it rain candy? Will everyone suddenly be allowed to do whatever they want?

[Translate to English:] Modul 2

Let your imagination run free, create a picture according to the motto "street of the future" as you please. Gluing, painting, collages, ink, and much more. ... which technique you use is entirely up to you.

The best works will be selected by a jury of experts for online voting, which will take place on Facebook. The winners chosen here win great prizes and become part of the museum by exhibiting their work at the Grassi Ethnographic Museum in Leipzig!

We are eager to see your picture!
