What inspires the artists of Museum Brandhorst in their works? It is travel memories, special places, feelings, experiences, mythological legends?


Inspired by the abstract language of form in Cy Twombly’s works, we will tell our own stories in our self-designed sketchbooks. With the help of decalcomania, a color printing technique, we let ourselves be guided by chance. What personal memories will you capture in your sketchbook?


The workshop will be run by freelance artist Elli Hurst. In her work, she explores natural structures and the properties of surfaces. Nature forms the basis of her artistic creative process and the source of her inspiration. The complexity, form and color of natural materials are the focus of her work.





Every Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., the intergenerational drop-in format “Open Factory” provides the right setting to get creative with the whole family or with friends. Changing techniques and themes entice you to take part in varied artistic projects, and to stroll through the exhibitions. Whether drawing, painting, using different printing techniques or dancing, whether analog, digital or hybrid—we will take you into the world of colors and shapes and appeal to your imagination and creative spirit.





You’ll find more information about our artists and artwork in our digital creative lab: Factory. There you can explore creative projects to do at home and many other workshops and guided tours for your next museum visit.
