Fantasimuseet – en familjeworkshop under Pride 2024

Come and create a new, fabulous, and fantastic portrait gallery at the National Museum!

During Pride Week, we invite all children on school break and their families to the National Museum's studio to collectively create a temporary, fabulous, and fantastic portrait collection. Who do you think should be included? Someone you know, a celebrity, or a character from a book?

We draw inspiration from the American artist Vaginal Davis, who in her portraits highlights people she admires and who historically never had their portraits hung in castles or museums. With much energy and humor, she aims to change both history and the future by telling different stories and painting different pictures than those she saw and heard growing up.

In her portraits, Vaginal Davis celebrates rebellious women, queer people, and black individuals throughout history, using all sorts of possible and impossible materials. An invitation card to a party can become a canvas, and an old lipstick can be used as paint.

In the studio, we will set up work tables with possible and impossible materials, talk about role models and imagination, and create the portraits that we want to make.

Our goal is to create a temporary, fabulous, and fantastic portrait gallery in the corridor outside the studio during this weekend with copies of the portraits created by the participants in the studio. Each person decides whether their portrait can be included, and everyone gets to take their original artwork home!

Bags, storage, wardrobe
You are allowed to bring smaller bags (max. 42x30x10 cm) into the exhibitions.
You may not bring larger bags, backpacks and umbrellas; these must be placed in a locker. On the bottom floor, there are lockers where you can put your jacket, bag and backpack.

We will be happy to lend you a wheeled walking frame or wheelchair to make your visit easier. Please ask one of our staff on the ground floor.

Prams and pushchairs
You can walk around the museum with a pram or pushchair. If you do not want to bring it into the exhibitions, there is a space to park it outside the children’s exhibition at the entrance level. There is a museum host to give you instructions on where to park. Please note that this space is primarily intended for those visiting the children’s exhibition. If you want to visit the children’s exhibition with small children, there are pushchairs and baby carriers that you can borrow upon presentation of ID. We ask that you do not bring prams and pushchairs that have been used outside into the exhibitions, as they bring in dirt. For safety reasons belongings must not be stored around or in prams parked outside the children’s exhibition. Unattended prams or pushchairs may be taken care of by the staff.
