Children Family

Creative play in the Tiergarten

Everyone is invited to participate! The Kreuzberg-based association known as “S27 – Kunst and Bildung” (S27 – Art and Education) offers young visitors an area designed specifically for them. In cooperation with the Berlin-based artist Seraphina Lenz, the Tiergarten Park will be transformed for three days into a fantastical children’s paradise.

True to the motto NUR MIT EUCH/ONLY WITH YOU, there will be a number of opportunities for children and adults to explore, play and try out new things. Whether it’s an open-air photo studio with a costume kiosk, flower and garland weaving, Murat’s Kids Disco or the various acts performing on the children’s stage – none of these games can work alone but only in cooperation with others. Inspiration will be provided by Little Sun, an initiative created by world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson: Children will be invited to paint their own sunlight graffiti using solar light.

This is a place to play and learn, and it’s also home to the kids’ version of the adults’ “Round Table”, in this case with no hierarchies and no above vs. below. This is where kids can do crafts and conduct experiments, while also having eye-level discussions (just like the adults at the Round Tables in the “History and Remembrance” area) or just relaxing. Our goal is to raise awareness and enthusiasm among children and adolescents for German unity and its associated values: that is, of course, while also having lots of fun – NUR MIT EUCH/ONLY WITH YOU!

Seraphina Lenz

Participation in urban spaces

The Berlin-based artist Seraphina Lenz explores living environments and landscapes and develops new urban spaces together with locals. This way, the city becomes the stage and venue for social themes but also of joint experiences and personal desires. Together with S27 and visitors, Seraphina Lenz will transform the Tiergarten into a dreamy, playful and creative art lab.  www.seraphinalenz.de
