Instead of an activity with young people in spring that had to be canceled due to the first lockdown, we asked them to send in their experiences about the situation with little stories, photos, comics or drawings about their feelings and thoughts.

The plan to present the works in a special exhibition failed again due to the new close of museums. So we decided without further ado to organise an outdoor exhibition at the  museum walls and fence of our site.

So everyone can have a stroll to the museum, see the impressive statements made by the young people  and experience a very special museum feeling.
