WAS TUN! HOLIDAY PROGRAM

ART LAB
On hunting for-and stumbling across-colors

New dates follow shortly.

What is rabbit-skin glue used for? How do you make egg tempera? And can you invent your own colors?

These are only some of the many questions to be explored in the art lab that we will set up in the Lenbachhaus's garden this summer. Guided by two artists and a conservator, we will wield grinders and pipettes to make different paints. We will pulverize natural ingredients like leaves and compare the resulting colors to those that appear in the art on view in the museum. And to top things off, we will build a large paper ship and launch it in the garden's fountain. Please bring your own snacks and drinks and wear clothes you're not worried about getting dirty!

Conception and realization: Leo Heinik, Clara Laila Abid Alsstar and Simone Miller (English speaking) in collaboration with the Lenbachhaus's art education specialists

For children and teenagers from age 5 to 14
Costs: 3 Euro / p.P. plus admission (free admission for kids with a holiday pass)
Free admission for children and teenagers under 18.

Tickets are sold at the cash desks inside the Lenbachhaus and online.

FIGURENTHEATERWERKSTATT
When a picture breaks the mold … and the characters end up on stage!

New dates follow shortly.

An eye in danger? Fingers the shape of pencils! Green heads? And to whom does that yellow hand actually belong? What are the secret mysteries that loom in the Lenbachhaus's paintings? And how did the museum come by these works?

These are the questions and stories we explore in our puppet theater workshop, and this summer it'll be all about the museum's collection and the exhibition of BODY CHECK. Martin KippenbergerMaria Lassnig. Each project day will be dedicated to a different work. We ask our own questions and tell new stories we present on the stage. We build and paint puppets and set decorations and then turn our story about the selected work of art into a live performance.

Performances are held at 5pm in the garden. Admission to the performances is free for all parents, friends, and other spectators.

SHADOW THEATER
"What was once upon a time, and what is now?"
New dates follow shortly.

What’s going on in the wild forests? Which colors do we see in dreams? Why do painters paint themselves at work? Which stories do the pictures tell? What might they have to do with our own lives? And what do we call "picture perfect"—the pictures themselves or the stories behind them?

"Well, if that isn’t just picture perfect!" was what art lovers over a century ago liked to exclaim when they looked at "beautiful" works of art. How do these pictures affect us today? That’s only one of the questions we will explore in a shadow theater project designed especially for the exhibition "Picture Perfect. Views from the 19th Century". You’re invited to join us as we look for those "picture perfect" moments in the stories and in the art. Closely examining pictures of landscapes, people, and situations of life—on the stage, in the studio—we will discuss what we see and the myths and fairy tales the art evokes. Then we will weave the strands of these narratives together for our own shadow theater performance.

A shadow theater production is a full-day project. Please bring your own snacks and drinks! Please ask your parents to sign the informed consent form and bring it on the day of the program!

We will meet in the museum lobby at 9.45am.

For children ages 6 through 12
Costs: 3 Euro / p.P. plus admission
Free admission for children and teenagers under 18.

Tickets are sold at the cash desks inside the Lenbachhaus and online.
