Workshop for school classes

Ouf! Learning French with Comics

This workshop adds a splash of colour to everyday learning and combines an interactive guided tour with a workshop. The museum becomes a stage, on which the participants are taken out of their everyday lives and can experiment with language.

Russian artist and journalist Victoria Lomasko observes and criticises the paternalism that Russian citizens are subjected to via increasing censorship, the passing of restrictive laws and the increasing unification of the Russian Orthodox Church with the state apparatus. With her dedicated work, Lomasko has become a significant chronicler of the most important recent social trends and oppositional movements in Russia. Her comics reportage is set in real life and addresses everyday topics – including those pertaining to youths.

In this workshop, younger school pupils focus more on visual language and the possibilities of drawing. Advanced pupils ask themselves questions about the value of freedom of speech and pluralism in a society. What they all have in common, is that they quickly forget they are speaking French...
