With the free audiokids guide your children can wander round the exhibition to the sound of the music of the swinging 1920s. Artist Theo van Doesburg gives them the chance to look at art through the eyes of his niece Marthe. In the company of Nelly Van Doesburg they uncover the meaning behind the works in the exhibition. When they get to Theo’s Dadaistic works, for example, your children will be fascinated by the Kurt Schwitters collage box on display. Theo explains how his crazy friend sometimes climbed trees and began speaking loudly in bird language. Marthe imitates the crazy bird sounds while Nelly’s imaginative examples provide a context for the art movement.
