(Your) Beethoven Frieze: Workshop

We start with a tour of Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze, illuminate the pictorial program, look into the eyes of the figures. From monsters to angels to heroes, everything is there. In the workshop that follows, there are no limits to the imagination: The frieze is interpreted freely. We will work with paper templates, stencils, scissors, glue and colored pencils. Along the way, the “Ode to Joy” will be rhymed anew as part of a language game.
