Rein ins Gemälde! Eine Zeitreise für Kinder

In the organizer's words:

Who hasn't wished they could slip into a painting from the past, meet the people there and find out how they lived back then? With "Inside the painting! A journey through time for children", the Deutsches Historisches Museum invites young museum visitors of primary school age and their families to explore one of Augsburg's famous monthly paintings from the 16th century for the first time. Like in a pop-up book, they can immerse themselves in the social life of the time. People depicted in the painting become narrative figures and give visitors access to four thematic areas: People, Play, Trade and Nature. In this inclusive exhibition, children can explore the visible and invisible in a playful and exploratory way. Did life really look the same at that time? The aim is to introduce visitors to a precise and critical examination of pictorial representations.

The central monthly painting "January - February - March" is one of four paintings in the "Augsburg Monthly Paintings" cycle of the seasons. They are among the most important works of art in the collection of the Deutsches Historisches Museum. The museum's conservators are currently working intensively on the four paintings. The monthly painting at the center of the exhibition will be fully restored by the opening and presented in a new frame for the first time. A spacious workshop room, an important part of the children's exhibition, provides an insight into the restoration work processes and also offers space for visitors' own creative ideas.

The exhibition offers a variety of educational formats and is intended to open up playful approaches to history through original objects and hands-on stations. The experience gained from this will be incorporated into the planned exhibition area for children and families within the DHM's new permanent exhibition.
