Unfortunately, the museum is closed during the renovation. The puppet theater will perform again in the European Hansemuseum from September 21, 2023. KOLK 17 is still available and approachable. Our colleagues Astrid Franck and Janna Bauer are there for you in the TheaterFigurenMobil and will be pleased to answer your questions.
Feel free to visit us!
Six Artistic Views of the KOLK 17 Collection
The project “Who’s Talking?” opened the door to an artistic exploration of the KOLK17 collection. Six artists from African, Asian and European countries turned their gaze on the collection and developed their personal response to self-chosen puppets. The resulting views are now revealed in the virtual exhibition “Who’s Talking? Six Artistic Views of the KOLK 17 Collection”.
The exhibition consists of six rooms in which six featured artists can be found and six meta-rooms with conceptual fields that become important over the course of the project. The meta-rooms are currently only available in German. However, you can download the English translation as a PDF.
