DESCRIPTION

This new mini-series of activities for Garage’s youngest visitors is based on the theme of multicultural diversity. Inspired by the Köken Ergun exhibition Young Turks, which explores the same subject using different material, the participants will learn about the specific habits of three particular groups of people living in Russia.

The activities and workshops for kids that accompany the exhibition Young Turks are like adventures rather than ordinary classes. Looking at the example of real artists and researchers, we are going to explore the diverse cultures of some of the peoples in Russia. Using maps, photographs, and videos, we will take a closer look at the traditional costumes, music, dance, and literary history of the people in Russia’s northern, Siberian, and steppe regions. Their visual appearance and traditional rituals may seem exotic for us, so we will try to understand why, and appreciate the appeal of a heterogeneous world, made up of contrasting phenomena. This course is great preparation for open workshops: equipped with new knowledge, it will be easier for children to engage in practical activities that will be even more compelling.

This course is intended for children ages 6+ and creative adults.
