GSM sponsor of the project BeFamily

Garage San Marco is once again supporting the six workshops for kids and teens held by The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, reserved to the Family Card members.

Philosophy has always acted as a filter on our ability to think, to narrate, to question ourselves and the surrounding world, just like art does. Children are not afraid to pose questions, nor to offer brave and resourceful answers, and are thus better philosophers than adults are.

Members participating to the program will be given a special passport to register their activities through this one-year-long itinerary.

Enrollment
Activities are Family Card members of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection only.
To enroll please fill in and send via email or fax, together with receipt of payment, the enrollment form published at this link 15 days prior to the activity.
Participation fee is 5 euros per person.

 

 

Calendar

 

7 November 2015
Nice to Meet You! (Hold on, Who am I?)
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
To introduce and to portray ourselves, or to narrate our stories—a fundamental question for both artists and philosophers—may not be as simple as it seems.
How do we see ourselves? How do others see us? To be or not to be?

 

 

28 November 2015
What an Idea!
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
Ideas are everywhere and nowhere. Plato thought we find them beyond the celestial vault, while Aristotle believed we can create them. How do we look for them? Where do they go when they are not inside us? Can we create new ones?
At the museum, we will cultivate them in a special island.
Enrollment opens on November 13

 

 

30 January 2016
Rules and Chance
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
What is creativity? What is inspiration? Do they suffice in the making of a work of art? A workshop on art, nature, games, the need for rules, and the need to break away from them … in an orderly but imaginative way.
Enrollment opens on January 15

 

 

20 February 2016
There's Nothing! Is It Empty?
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
What is nothingness? Does it exist? And if so, why? Over centuries, philosophers and scientists have provided quite different answers. Japanese art will help us understand the difference between emptiness and nothingness.
Enrollment opens on  February 5

 

12 March 2016
“How Beautiful!”
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
What is the difference between nice, beautiful, sublime, kitsch, and ugly? What brings you to say "I like it" or "I don't like it"? By impersonating a scientist-philosopher, we will tour the museum looking for proofs of what is "truly beautiful."
Enrollment opens on  February 26

 

 

2 April 2016
Remembrance of Things Past
11am for children 11-14 years old| 3:30pm for children 6-10 years old
St Augustine maintained he knew what time was but could not explain it. This workshop on time will help you discover why a day spent playing games goes faster than a day spent in the classroom.
Enrollment opens on March 18
