Our city – relaxes
Right at the beginning of school vacation we’ll devote ourselves on one afternoon completely to the topic of resting. How is the Jewish day of rest celebrated? When does it start and when does it end? What do you do during the rest day and what should you leave well enough alone? In our Visible Storage depot you will be able to see a lot of objects that are used for Shabbat. We’ll design a fragrant souvenir in the Atelier – one that can be used on the Shabbat or as a souvenir.
Our city – last minute!
Perhaps the things in the museum want to go on vacation as well? Hit the road, stare into space and really relax? We’ll put together a fun tour group made up not only of famous Viennese women and men, but also of museum objects, and send them all on vacation! You will transform what the vacationers pack in and their travel destinations into a creative collage.
Raise your cups to Arik Brauer!
On this Sunday we’ll congratulate the artist Arik Brauer on all of his arts. Together in the exhibition we’ll discover all the things this multi-talent can do and then try them out ourselves. We’ll design tableware – inspired by the impressions in Arik Brauer’s great artworks – pictures, books, furniture, costumes, music – and, as a matter of fact, tableware.
Red Is the Heart. For children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren
Lily Renée Willheim fled Vienna in 1938. She took her drawing talent along with her and created comics in New York. Her children’s book “Red Is the Heart” has been published on the occasion of the exhibition “Three with a Pen” and tells of five colors, of the world, and of love. Together we’ll read her book and then look for something blue, yellow, green, brown and red on Judenplatz. From all these things we’ll make our own story together and then illustrate it. The five colors we need to do this appear as colored pencils, felt-tip pens, chalk and oil pastels, and on a large sheet of wrapping paper.
Everything’s kosher, right?
A culinary program focused on food and drink, the permitted and the forbidden, plates and cups, mugs and silverware. On our museum tour you will see dishes from all over the world and interview the museum objects. You’ll ask cool questions and we – together with the museum piece – will answer them. In the Atelier we’ll design a cool bottle for Limonana – the typical Israeli mint lemonade.
Apprenticeship & scissors at Gottfried & Söhne
This is a workshop for those who like to design cool stuff, love paper and have funny ideas! We’ll start with a walk through the museum, where we’ll find all the objects from the “Holy Land.” The museum shop Gottfried & Söhne offers modern design from Israel and invites you to create your own advertising – with paper and scissors. During your apprenticeship as an adwoman or adman, you’ll be looking for your favorite pieces in the shop and design your own advertising for them.
Grand art, quite small
The exhibition “All of My Arts” provides us inspiration with drawings, paintings, furniture, music and much more. When it comes to Arik Brauer’s art, detail plays an important role – we’ll be training our eyes while looking around and then we’ll model a personal work of art out of something we’ve discovered. This is fantastical, colorful and so small that it fits into a snow globe.
Back to School – refresh your Hebrew
School will be starting soon – so there’s still enough time for a fun workshop on the Hebrew alphabet. We’ll search the whole museum (as well as in front of the house) from Aleph to Taw for 22 Hebrew letters, print nameplates, and learn a few very simple sentences. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
