“Mapping a Land of Emotions”

In collaboration with the artist Rebecca Moccia

From 12 to 30 June 2023 Pirelli HangarBicocca summer camps are back for children aged between 7 and 11. This will be a unique opportunity to see contemporary art up close, delving into the vast exhibition spaces and working alongside a young Italian artist.

The “Mapping a Land of Emotions” is a new summer camp project that revolves around the idea that the spaces around us – with their surfaces, sounds, temperatures, functions and history – possess emotional qualities that can bring about particular sensations or feelings in those who explore them.

The project is the brainchild of the artist Rebecca Moccia, who developed it together with the Pirelli HangarBicocca arts tutors, and it is inspired by the temporary Grand Bal exhibition by Ann Veronica Janssens, who uses light, colour, mirrors, air and artificial fog to create her works. Her art modifies the visitor’s perception of space and architecture, helping them experience reality with all their senses.

Every day the children will engage in activities that involve the languages of art and technology while giving top priority to the experiences and perceptions of the body, exploring the visible, but above all the invisible, aspects of the Pirelli HangarBicocca space.

Through artistic activities, games, books and outings in the area, the children will turn into authentic “emotional explorers” and will together create an emotional map to describe their journey through the various spaces of the museum. This imaginary map of Pirelli HangarBicocca will express the relationships that they have entered into with the place while experiencing it.

Children aged between 7 and 11 will be welcomed every morning by the Pirelli HangarBicocca arts tutors, who will take them on a journey of discovery filled with wonders and new challenges to be approached with imagination and a sense of fun.

Pirelli HangarBicocca summer camps, together with the weekend events with creative courses for children and families, are part of the Edu Summer 2023 programme, which brings the younger public into contact with experts from various sectors.


Rebecca Moccia (b. 1992, Naples) lives and works in Milan. In her trans-disciplinary art, she explores the material nature of the perceptive and emotional states that can be brought about by certain aspects of physical and social space. Her works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions at a number of Italian and international institutions and in 2021 she won the Italian Council’s international research grant.
