This year, on the occasion of the large summer camp on Museum Island Berlin, it’s time to say “Together with artists, children and young people explore the museums together with artists and turn the Kolonnadenhof into an open-air studio. What is discovered in the museums is also visible outside – in an open-air exhibition, one’s own paintings, plaster casts, photographs and furniture are presented.

Contemporary art is the focus of the holiday offers in the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum for Contemporary Art – Berlin, in which the exhibition “Hello World. Revision of a collection”. At the Kunstgewerbemuseum the exhibition “Food Revolution. Designing for the Society of Tomorrow “an edible garden will emerge. And the exhibition “100 Percent Wool” offers exciting topics for a holiday week in the Museum of European Cultures in Berlin-Dahlem.

Admission to the National Museums in Berlin is free for children and adolescents up to the age of 18.

In the first and fourth week of the holidays, a summer camp for children and young people will take place on the Museum Island Berlin. Four workshops will focus not only on the exhibitions, but also on the outdoor space and the architecture. The colonnade courtyard will become an action area: under the guidance of artists, photography, painting, drawing and sculpting will take place here. The results of all the workshops will be brought together in a final presentation in the Kolonnadenhof, to which parents, siblings and friends are also invited. The meeting point for all workshops is the ticket office of the Neues Museum.

Artists often found motifs for their paintings while hiking in nature. In the exhibition “Wanderlust” you will encounter numerous examples, such as Caspar David Friedrich’s famous painting „Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer“. Equipped with a motif finder and sketchpad, you set out to find your own motifs. Based on your sketches, you will paint views of the Museum Island on canvas in the open-air studio. You will send the most beautiful sketches as postcards.

Illusion oder Wirklichkeit? – Fotomontage

You and Nefertiti are sunbathing on the lawn in front of the New Museum, the statue of Heracles in the Old Museum is wearing your favourite outfit. What is impossible in reality, you can make come true with a photomontage. With your camera, you go in search of your motifs. With the help of a photographer, you will learn different techniques of photomontage and image retouching. In your pictures you will combine past and present, interior and exterior spaces.

Für mich kopiert – Gipsabguss
For children from 6 to 12 years
Original or cast? You’ll find both in the collections of the Museum Island. What is the difference? Why were plaster casts of famous sculptures already made in antiquity? With the help of an artist, you will learn the technique of plaster casting and duplicate a sculpture. Finally, you place your copy outside the museum in a new context. Which staging do you choose?

Zusammen gebaut – Möbel für den Kolonnadenhof
For young people aged 13 and over
The architecture of the Museum Island is based on the buildings of antiquity. Stone walls, porticoes, high staircases – the monumental architecture can be quite intimidating. How would you design the Museum Island to make it more inviting? Equipped with a floor plan, you explore the architecture of Museum Island and document your observations. Under the guidance of a street artist, you will design furniture and objects that are welcoming and encourage people to stay.

The summer camp is part of the educational project “Connections” of the Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin. “Connections” is supported by the Kuratorium Preußischer Kulturbesitz.
