What the Museum of Modern Art is offering during the Whitsun holidays. Would you like to discover the fabulous Museum of Modern Art in Kirchberg and its exhibitions with your family? The Mudam offers many activities for young people, especially during the Whitsun holidays.

For example, the Mudam GO! Studio by O.S.T., every day from 22 to 30 May between 10 am and 6 pm. This is a workshop for children and adults with observation games and lots of activities. Inspired by the magical effect that William Kentridge’s works can have on the viewer, the artist collective O.S.T. (Oiseaux Sans Tête) invites visitors to experience the infinite and magical possibilities of the ‘green screen’ – a film technique whose origins date back to the beginning of the 20th century and the director and illusionist Georges Méliès. This show is intended for people over 6 years old. It is limited to three people at a time. The person accompanying the minor counts as a participant.

The “Visit for children with grandma and grandpa” formula is also available for children aged 6 and over. The next visit is scheduled for 24 May from 15.00 to 15.45 (in Luxembourgish). A visit in French is scheduled for 26 May between 15.00 and 15.45.

On 27 May, there will be an activity called “Bringing objects to life” (10.00 to 12.00 for children aged 9 to 12; 14.30 to 16.30 for children aged 6 to 8) as part of the William Kentridge exhibition “More Sweetly Play the Dance”. When William Kentridge’s children were still small, he used to make them puppets on their birthdays with various objects he found in his house. Come and give new life to everyday objects using a new animation technique.

On 28 May, another visit for children (15.00 to 15.45) in Lëtzebuergesch will take place. On this day, the reading in French of “Mystères aux Musées” with Marie-Isabelle Callier is on the programme, followed by an activity in the MudamStudio. “Mysteries in the Museums” tells the story of a young faun and his dog who escape from the National Museum of History and Art in the middle of the night. They discover the city and hide in the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’Art Contemporain, the Lëtzebuerg City Museum, the Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, the Musée Dräi Eechelen, the Musée national d’histoire et d’art and the Villa Vauban – Musée d’art de la Ville de Luxembourg. The activity is suitable for children aged 6 to 8.

Finally, let’s point out another way of discovering the Museum of Modern Art: Throughout 2021, listen to the original tales imagined by Luisa Bevilacqua around the works of the Mudam Collection as a podcast. Here is the link: soundcloud.com/mudamlux
