Art for the ears and ears for art
Sat, February 3, and Sun, February 4, 2018
and during the 2018 Easter vacations

What are the stories behind the paintings in the Lenbachhaus? What do they tell us, and what did they experience on their way into the museum?

Working with children between 9 and 12, we created short audio plays on six selected items in the Lenbachhaus’s collections, including works by the artists Franz von Lenbach, Marianne von Werefkin, and Emilie von Hallavanya.

On the weekend of February 3–4, 2018, we’re kicking off the next round: all children between the ages of 9 and 14 are invited to sample the existing audio guide and contribute ideas on how to improve it. During the Easter vacations, we will then develop new audio plays to go with selected works of art from our collections. Supported by two artists, radio professionals, voice actors, and an author of children’s books about art, we will investigate the stories behind the paintings, write them up, and record our audio plays in a professional studio.
