What happens when you ditch all the museum’s exhibition-making expertise? Over the past few months, more than 400 children, young people and a group of curators aged between 13 and 16 years have been devising new ways to display the collection in a museum. During workshops, the youngest children assembled artworks on the basis of colour and association. The older children and young people grouped the works around themes such as corona, refugees or self-image and social media. The result is an expansive collection presentation on the entire first floor of the museum. It is unique in the museum world that these children and young people were given so much say. More than 100 works of art were installed in sometimes unusual ways, with an accompanying maze, beanbags and a laboratory.
