Art for the ears and ears for art

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 eleven selected items in the Lenbachhaus’s collections, including works by the artists Franz von Lenbach, Marianne von Werefkin, and Emilie von Hallavanya.
