A surreal visit with (your) kids

Bozar releases another children's guide, this time for the exhibition 'Histoire de ne pas rire. Surrealism in Belgium'. In doing so, Bozar wants to inspire young people to come and discover art in a playful way.

Young visitors

Experiencing art with children is wonderful. They observe everything that comes their way in an open-minded way. With the visitor's guide for kids, you set off together throughout the exhibition, with drawing and active challenges for the whole party. The aim is to encourage interaction and trigger discussions and emotions. The exhibition aims to be an accessible place of discovery where visitors of all ages are activated to think subjectively about and engage with art.

Experimenting and fantasising

Poet Paul Nougé accompanies you and your entourage through the exhibition. Along the way, he will tell you via fun facts and fascinating quests how the surrealists of the time thought. One of the assignments is a drawing exercise. Here, you choose some unique elements from different works of art and then fuse them into one drawing. Of course, don't forget to give your creation a surrealist name! Other assignments include depicting poses and a group drawing assignment. Does such a playful experience during an exhibition appeal to you? Then make sure to visit the expo with your family and friends!
