Red Yellow Blue at the Stedelijk

00:06:18 365 Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
Twelve children explore the museum with a camera and a list of questions. Curious what they thought about the art they saw?

Ever done a handstand in a museum? Twelve children were given a camera on their heads and were released at the Stedelijk. What do they find? Lots of red, yellow and blue. And artists with names like Barnett Newman, Dan Flavin, and - this appears to be a difficult name to pronounce - Gerrit Rietveld. See how Milou finds an artwork 'beautiful but also a bit weird', Rijk admiring the water pipes and Toer looks at 'Cathedra' upside down.

This video is specially made for the Family Lab: Build with Red Yellow and Blue.
