Two new interesting exhibitions in Berlin!
from the 29th of March to the 21st of October 2012
Deutsche Kinemathek-Museum für Film und Fernsehen,
Potsdamer Straße 2
this is an exhibition for children that explore the figure and role of the heroe in fil, comics, videogames, etc. From Pippi Longstockings to Spiderman, to anime...
Very interesting is the section about "how heroes are made": costumes, stunts, special effects, etc.
There are also film projections and cartoon workshops.
I am not a kid anymore but I might go there as well, I hope they let me in!
DIY - Die Mitmach Revolution
From the 30th of March to the 2nd of September 2012
Musem für Kommunikation Berlin
Leipziger Straße 16
This exhibition is dedicated to the actual trend of "Do it yourself". It was very common and very cool in the 60's and 70's to do stuff on your own, then due to the economical craze from the 80's on, we lost the need of creating with our hands and also repairing things. We learnt only how to buy, consume and throw away, quicker and quicker.
Since a few years people are getting back to DIY kind activities and, somehow, way of life. Websites like "DaWanda", "Etsy", "Craftsters" are promoting and taking together people with this passion, a passion that in the last years has become also necessity.
The world, thanks to DIY can also be a bit more colorful and less expensive and commercial.
The focus is also on sustainability, recycling and upcycling
I am very curios to see this exhibition and on the website you will find many interesting links.
Beside the exhibition there are open workshop.
I will certainly go to see this one! Hope it is a good suggestion also for you! :o)
