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, we 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 second Thursday evening from 6 to 7.30 p.m., the free drop-in format “Silver Factory” provides the right setting for teenagers and adults to get creative. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous studio, the Silver Factory, various different techniques and themes entice us to take part in varied artistic endeavors across all media. Whether drawing, painting, using different printing techniques or dancing, whether analog, digital or hybrid, come by and be transported into the world of colors and shapes in a relaxed atmosphere.





You will find many other programs in the museum as well as information about the artists and artworks in the collection in our digital creative lab: Factory.
