6 April, 2021 - 22 October, 2021
The Kunsthal and our main sponsor ING have joined forces to organise another new online edition of the Kunstbuzz. The ranger Natascha Hokke from the Society for the Preservation of Nature Monuments in the Netherlands takes pupils from the upper classes of primary education on safari through We Are Animals. The official language of the Kunstbuzz is Dutch.
In the exhibition We Are Animals you can discover the world of animals in art. Polar bears with feathers, enormous paintings of cuddlable cats and a flying elephant: unusual animals by more than thirty artists meet in the Kunsthal. The exhibition is about the relation between people and animals and shows you the animal creations at very close quarters.
Ranger Natascha Hokke guides the pupils through the exhibition We Are Animals. She picks out a number of artworks and tells unusual facts about animals close to home. The peregrine falcon, for instance, the vole, the mint moth and of course the wolf.
After watching the video, pupils get down to work on the assignments from the LOOK&DO tour on their own or in groups. Questions like ‘Why do you find an animal sweet?’ or ‘Which animal do you think you are like?’ challenge the pupils to think about their own relation with animals.
