Creative sessions for Kids

Kids is a project that introduces families and children to contemporary art with instruments and ideas that arouse curiosity and an understanding of the thoughts and techniques of today’s artists, through materials and experiences that are new and different every time.


The activities, designed to be experienced from home, allow participants to explore the temporary exhibitions “Short-circuits” by Chen Zhen, “the eye, the eye and the ear” by Trisha Baga and the permanent installation The Seven Heavenly Palaces 2004-2015 by Anselm Kiefer thanks to the Street View of Google Arts & Culture.
The creative sessions are enriched with contributions to discover the imaginary of artists and transform children into young art explorers.

In his installation The Seven Heavenly Palaces 2004-2015, Anselm Kiefer takes us on a journey through some very different elements, each one meaningful and important for different reasons. Together with the arts tutors, Google Arts & Culture’s Street View lets us explore Kiefer’s work and imagine the journey of our dreams as we work together to pack a suitcase full of experiences, people, passions, memories, songs, books, films, perfumes… and so much more!

A world of objects
