At the Museum of Things, we hosted students of Jens-Nydahl Primary School in Berlin Kreuzberg for a jolly project week. Twenty-one kids from age six to eleven drew floor plans, furnished apartments, designed wallpaper and built dream homes. Best of all – they turned our white cubes into very colourful ones! Here are some impressions of a busy week in the D.I.Y. Home Advice Centre:

A big thank you to guest curator Nicola von Albrecht, the whole team of the museum and intern Hannah Seifert for their fantastic support and to the lovely students and teachers of class 1,2,3 A of the Jens-Nydahl Primary School in Berlin Kreuzberg for bringing such enthusiasm to the project.
