Family Workshop

Experiment and create together

Malmö

Bring your kids to the museum and set your creativity free together in our workshop!

Welcome to our workshop on the last Sunday of each month! Kids and adults create together with inspiration from the current exhibitions. Each workshop has a unique theme based on the exhibitions on display.

“Hilma af Klint – Artist, researcher, medium” is our current exhibition at Moderna Museet Malmö. In the exhibition, which is displayed throughout the museum, all visitors can discover this fascinating artist. It is easy to be drawn into Hilma af Klint’s colorful world of images, where both exciting and strange symbols coexist. In our family workshops we discover Hilma af Klint’s art and at every opportunity we work with different themes and techniques.

Theme 11 and 25 October:

Imagine if the roots of the trees could talk! What would they say?

The artist Hilma af Klint painted trees! She painted many trees and called all her tree paintings “Tree of Knowledge”. In Hilma’s trees, both the earth and the sky have a place. If you look closely, you will find birds, humans, angels, flowers and snails! What grows in your tree?

Right now, all trees are in transformation. The leaves have been green all summer, and now they begin to change color – green turns yellow, red and brown and eventually the leaves fall to the ground, rot and become part of the soil again. Under some trees we find not only leaves but also chestnuts, fruits and nuts.

Trees grow and stretch up to the sky. But they also have roots that grow downward, underground and into the soil. Perhaps one could say that the tree is a link between the dark and invisible underworld and the sky that extends high above our heads, and seems to continue straight into space.

During the Family Workshops on 11 and 25 October, we create our very own trees – trees with secret and mysterious forces. We paint on paper and also use materials from nature in a technique called assemblage, a kind of collage technique.
