SATURDAY, JANUARY 8: Family Workshop

Do we need to see to represent? How to understand what we observe? Do you always believe what we see? Join us for a family activity that deals with how we see and understand the world around us. Explore how other senses like touch, taste, smell and hearing influence our perception and understanding of reality and how different artists approach the "visual".

Guided tours 17:30 hs. Muram, Regional Museum of Modern Art (CARTAGENA)

During a visit of an exhibition of contemporary art, we face many issues. The work suggests a few ideas, the mediator of art tells us more ... What do we think? This guided tour offers a special journey through the exhibition: true lies, half truths and imagination will help us to seek our own interpretation of the works.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 9: Family Workshop


The exhibition "Constitution for Temporary Display" by one of Manifesta 8's curatorial collectives implied a new process for setting up an exhibition of contemporary art. In this workshop the participants are going to make up their own rules of a game mode and visit the exhibition game following the clues suggested by the art mediators. Family Workshop
