Easter holidays at SMK
Spring is here – and we invite you to join us during the Easter holidays. Let your creativity run riot in the coolest children’s workshop in town, take a look at our exhibition for children, and view our Asger Jorn exhibition from a child-friendly perspective.
Paint like Asger Jorn at the Children’s Workshop
Here you can paint, create prints, collages, clay sculptures, or ‘drip paintings’ like Jorn did. You can also try your hand at creating your own ‘modifications’ – painting over existing images just like the rebellious Jorn, who would buy old paintings from Paris flea markets and paint on top of them.
More about the Children’s Workshop 15–21 April from 10.30–16.30
A child-friendly view of Asger Jorn
Discover new aspects of one of Denmark’s greatest artists in this spring’s major exhibition Asger Jorn – Restless Rebel.
Children (and everyone else, of course!) can learn more about Jorn and his art by following a video-based “kid’s trail” through the exhibition. It consists of a number of brief films featuring a lively, cheerful puppet version of Jorn in his studio. He tells us about himself in a fun-filled, colourful and musical way, shows us his paintings, and demonstrates his creative techniques.
Follow the QR codes to watch the film clips – and learn more about Jorn in a cool, entertaining way

Children’s exhibition about freedom
The children’s exhibition FREEDOM! explores the many forms that freedom can take and asks us ‘What does freedom mean to you?’. Taking its point of departure in a range of important and distinctive works of art and the ideas of the famous Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard we invite children and adults alike to discuss the concept of freedom. Admission is free.

Puppet shows for children and adults
During the Easter holidays you can also see a puppet show in the exquisite puppet theatre in the Sculpture Street – a 1:1 copy, created by the artist Simon Starling, of a puppet theatre in the Kongens Have park in Copenhagen.
In the puppet show The Expedition (2011) we join Simon Starling’s puppet alter ego on a dramatic journey as he sets out for New York in a canoe, trying to hunt down an okapi. These performances are intended for adult audiences – but children from the age of 3 upwards are welcome to watch, too.
