Theatre company ‘Studio Orka’ and several Antwerp families joined forces with the MAS to build this brand-new, family-friendly exhibition, that was developed with children in mind. Let the stimulating scenography guide you through the MAS’s amazing collection, showing how we seek to protect our home, what we like to show to the outside world (or not), and which home rituals we find important.
Meet characters like the sewer crocodile, the uninvited spider, the professor-philosopher or even tableware that tells you more about the guests who just left. They invite families to look at their ‘home’ from a different perspective, in a fun and engaging way.
The stories that were collected from dozens of Antwerp citizens, both young and young at heart, reveal how ‘home’ means something completely different to everyone. At the same time, it also gives visitors an idea which things or people make us feel more at home. See how different your perspective on the world can be thanks to a project that was developed with Antwerp schools, featuring photographs that were taken from the bedroom window.
Set to work with your kids at the activity stations: with arts and crafts, philosophizing or even drawing on a wall. For once, you can do all this and more in a museum. Because this exhibition is completely child-proof!
Visit the exhibition with a treasure hunt booklet for the little ones and find out all about the six special guests Rachel invited to her home. You can find it in the exhibition.
- 'Anybody home?' is on display on the 7th floor
The Vancutsem-Ramirez family is one of the families who participated in the creation of the expo. They tell how it was done and what they think of the result.
