Every year in spring the artist group finger’s bee colonies on the roof of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst begin their flight over the city of Frankfurt.

With a wide range of events, guided tours of the apiary and workshops for children, the artist group re-launches its activities revolving around its production site on the museum roof each spring.

 

MMK Bee workshops for children

(only in German)


Within a framework of workshops taking place twice a month, children between the ages of 6 and 10 are offered a breakfast at which they can taste a wide range of honeys and learn about the essentials of everyday life for bees in a big city. After a breakfast and a round table discussion lasting about one hour, we take a bit of beeswax from the colonies, which the children then use to make their own crayons. The workshop comes to an end with the creation of a honey jar label. Duration: approx. 3 hours
