Collection in action
Education space for kids

“Collection in action” is the Museum’s first attempt to create an education space for kids based on a collection of contemporary art.

The selection of works and their display was a result of our educators’ observations and experience gathered during previous shows featuring the Museum’s permanent collection: “In the Heart of the Country” and “In the Near Future.”

For the Museum, it’s a chance to sum up the educational activities that have been conducted since 2013, but it is also an opportunity to welcome a new audience, one that is yet to be introduced to contemporary art. The exhibition is an invitation to learn about works of art made by contemporary artists — films, sculptures and installations presented in an interactive space, where gaining knowledge about art is fun.

“Collection in action” is mainly addressed to three groups of our visitors: the youngest guests of the Museum (kids aged 3–6); young visitors, usually coming to the Museum during school trips (kids aged 7–12); and their adult caregivers (encouraged to actively engage in education activities with children).

The education program is realized within the framework of the Ministry of Culture and National Hertitage’s program “Kultura Dostępna.”

The works presented are either from the Museum’s collection, the Filmoteka archives, or have been lent from artists.
