FULLY BOOKED | Love of surfaces – Lucy McKenzie in Maxvorstadt

  • LanguageGerman
  • Time of day5:00 PM until 7:30 PM
  • Duration150 minutes
  • RegistrationRegister at or under (089) 23805-198 Limited number of places.
  • Price15 Euro incl. admission, reduced price 10 Euro incl. admission. Minors under 18 free of charge


In this workshop the participants will become familiar with the painterly qualities in McKenzie’s works. The focus is on the illusionism of surfaces and textures. What meaning does architecture have for us and what meaning does it have for McKenzie? Afterwards, we will go to Maxvorstadt to collect surfaces photographically. This district is particularly suitable for the purpose, as the architecture there is characterized by classicistic urban expansion, the destruction of the Second World War and subsequent reconstruction, but also by the gentrification of recent years, thus making the area especially diverse. The collected surfaces will be printed, collaged and combined with drawings in the museum.


Workshop with Uli Ball 


For everyone aged between 14 and 99.


Meeting point: Museum information desk


Please note: 

All participants will have their own workspace with art materials. Naturally we will comply with all necessary COVID-19 requirements. We shall explain the hygiene regulations to you at reception. Prior to your visit, you must complete and sign our form for the purpose of contact tracing.

The dark side of Pop Art

The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art.

After Work: Let's talk about Art – vor der Kunst und an der Bar

Artworks attract us in many different ways. They agitate us or give us pause for thought, and sometimes their humor makes us laugh. Some artworks have such a strong effect that we can remember our encounter with them many years later. Each month, a different person chooses a work from our collection and shares with us not only art historical facts and background knowledge, but also their personal
