Are we familiar with all musical instruments? Could we use our imagination to create a new musical instrument out of recycled materials?

At the creative workshop A different take on musical instruments!, children aged 5 to 7 draw inspiration from the B&E Goulandris Foundation’s temporary exhibition Nouveau réalisme and look into one of the issues that New Realists highlighted 60 years ago: why burden Earth, when we are surrounded by so many materials that we can reuse?

Using as a starting point the works of Arman that are on display in the exhibition, children create their own upcycled musical instrument as they learn about recycling, waste conversion and environmental protection, all of which were highly important to New Realists.
