The Silent Castle is the title of Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck's solo exhibition at Museum Morsbroich in Leverkusen, Germany. Op de Beeck works in various mediums, from small watercolors to large, three-dimensional installations such as The Collector's House. The show at Museum Morsbroich presents works from the last twelve years, mainly drawn from the Goetz Collection. Hans Op de Beeck (be) produces large installations, sculptures, films, drawings, paintings, photographs and texts. His work is a reflection on our complex society and the universal questions of meaning and mortality that resonate within it. He regards man as a being who stages the world around him in a tragi-comic way. Above all, Op de Beeck is keen to stimulate the viewers' senses, and invite them to really experience the image. He seeks to create a form of visual fiction that delivers a moment of wonder, silence and introspection.

Give kids some responsible and challenging tasks, and you'd be surprised at the results. The “ Anything Goesexhibit at the National Museum in Warsaw was aimed as a museological and educational experiment. A group of 69 children aged 614 was divided into teams responsible for preparing the main temporary exhibition at the museum. Over six months, they worked on preparing the exhibition during weekly four-hour meetings. They prepared scripts, provided ideas for multimedia presentations, and curated almost 300 works for display. One of those was [Robert Mordzon]'s Giant Interactive Crossword . The build is in two parts. The letter tiles, which have embedded RFID tags, obviously look like the easiest part of the build. The table, looking at the video (after the break), probably needed a lot more effort and labour. It is built in two halves to make construction easier.
