The MUSEUMMMKFÜR MODERNE KUNST offers a varied programme specially designed for families, children and young people.

THE SECRET OF THE BOX - THE GAME FOR THE EXHIBITION

FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS AGED 6 AND OVER

A hidden original, an unexplained signature, a mini urinal, a glass vial of air from Paris, a long hair, three sealed envelopes - all this is part of the mysterious box. A game specially designed for the exhibition is waiting to be explored and solved by visitors throughout the MUSEUMMMK.

Starting with Marcel Duchamp's Boîte-en-Valise, we will get to know Rrose Sélavy and Richard Mutt together and move through the exhibition on a secret mission.

Booklet Workshop

FOR CHILDREN FROM 8 YEARS UPWARDS AND ACCOMPANYING ADULTS

What is art? What distinguishes art objects from everyday objects? And who actually decides what constitutes art?
Together we will delve into Marcel Duchamp's world and that of his works. We will examine enigmatic objects, coded paintings, miniature museums and much more. In the process, we will pursue precisely these questions. Then we will record our impressions and ideas that arise during our visit to the Marcel Duchamp exhibition in our own accompanying booklets. We will stamp, paint, write and much more.

MMK KUNST-ABITUR-KURS, digital

FOR STUDENTS OF THIS YEAR'S A-LEVEL CLASS

You are studying for your oral art A-level exam and have questions, need practice or want to expand your skills and test them in advance? You don't want to study alone, but together with others? In this three-day online intensive course you will review, question and discuss together with other students.

With the help of presentations, discussions, exercises and sample exams, high school graduates, accompanied by two MMK staff members, prepare for the oral A-level exams in terms of content and methodology.

Together, they develop, try out and consolidate ways of viewing and discussing art. In doing so, we follow the curricular guidelines for painting, photography and architecture and select works from the collection as representative examples. The offer can explicitly not replace individual school preparation, but is an additional opportunity to expand one's knowledge through learning in a group.

The MMK KUNST-ABITUR-KURS takes place once a year, shortly before the oral A-level exams.
