Kunstrauschen 04: Kids in the museum – I’m packing my bag
Beyza and Anton think it’s great to pack their suitcases for a trip. In this episode, they are reminded by artworks that there are a lot of people who are forced to leave their country.

Kunstrauschen 03: Kids in the museum – Phantásien
Do you know the book “Die unendliche Geschichte”? Here, a boy travels to the land of fantasy.

In this episode, Beyza and Anton get the chance to ask curator Alexandra Kolossa questions. “What new things did you discover when you made this exhibition?” The two are pretty sure they see something that is new to the curator as well.
