Cy Twombly was inspired by the Battle of Lepanto, the historical events and stories surrounding it to create a cycle of works – our "Lepanto" Cycle.


After contemplating and talking about these artworks together, children, parents and grandparents, friends and family listen to another old story. Together we create characters for this story. We then create the puppets with simple materials such as paper, fabric or consumables. At the end of our time together, we act out the story as a puppet theater.


Look forward to the experience: being creative with each other, spending time together.


The workshop is led by artist Niloufar Shirani.





Every Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., the intergenerational drop-in format "Open Factory" provides a great framework to allow you to get creative with the whole family or with friends, just as the mood takes you. Different techniques and topics inspire varied artistic pursuits and strolls through the exhibitions. Whether drawing, painting, working with different printing techniques, dancing; whether analog, digital or hybrid, we will whisk you away to the world of colors and shapes, and appeal to your imagination and creative spirit.





You will find more information about our artists and artworks, creative projects for your home and many other workshops and tours for your next visit in our digital creative laboratory the Factory.
