KUNSTHERBST Berlin 09 for Kids, September 21.-26. 2009
The arts education festival „KUNSTHERBST Berlin 09 for Kids“ gave children from Berlin and Brandenburg the opportunity to explore the world of contemporary art with the help of artists, collectors, art dealers and curators.
Children were invited to experience art where it actually happens – in art studios, museums, auction houses and galleries. Moreover, we encouraged children to participate in the creation of artworks. In various workshops and with the assistance of artists, they could build art pieces of their own. Using new education concepts, especially concepts based on new media technology, participants were playfully introduced to aspects of production, distribution, communication and reception of contemporary art and the arts scene.
