PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.


Art makes Learning Easy for Children
The museum as a showcase for art – and children? - Yes!
With collections stretching back over 600 years of art and architectural history, the Pinakothek museums in Munich  are opening their doors to the curiosity of their young visitors. Their thirst for knowledge, talents and skills can be discovered, nurtured and broadened here in the best possible way.
SEHSTERN vividly documents innovative art-related concepts and at the same time aims to make an important contribution to the debate on creativity: the project strongly refutes a functionalisation of creativity and economic utilisation of talent and instead shows how creativity on the trail of art can lead children to their own experience of the unexpected and unforeseeable.
