DESCRIPTION

Look-listen-do exhibition MixMax Brasil at Tropenmuseum Junior

Currently under construction at Tropenmuseum Junior: a brand new look-listen-do exhibition! By October 2012 Tropenmuseum Junior will be transformed into an imaginative artists’ quarter in Brasil.

Where in the world does everyone wear flip-flops? Where do footballers dance? Where does capoeira come from? And where does everyone come from different parts of the world? Olà – Brazil of course!

The exhibition space for MixMax Brasil will be full of doors and windows and surprising nooks and crannies: a mangrove tunnel, a dance atelier and a music studio, a bottle cave and a mix factory. So far more than thirty artists and craftspeople from Pernambuco in North-East Brazil have contributed to this exhibition.

For the whole family

Children will bring the exhibition to life, guided by Brazilian artists, dancers and musicians. Adults can follow their own route. Opening doors to the past. Learning about the art and culture of Pernambuco and enjoying the Brazilian music.
