The Leipzig Children's and Young People's Art Exhibition (Kijuku for short) invites children and young people aged seven to 24 years to artistically develop and submit their view of the world. This year, the exhibition is taking place for the 27th time under the motto "Everything Banana? In preparation for the Kijuku, a jury of adults and children selected the most successful entries at the end of 2021. There were no formal criteria for the type and design of the submissions - whether painting, graphics, sculpture, photography or video contributions, the children and young people had the opportunity to express themselves creatively. In retrospect, "Everything Banana?" deals with the last two years, in which the pandemic really shook up the everyday lives of children and young people. Inspiration for coming to terms with this time can be found in art. And so the motto invites us to question our concept of normality.

The exhibition at the MdbK can be visited by pupils under the age of 16 as part of their class. Please contact our colleagues in the art education department. The Leipzig Children's and Youth Art Exhibition is organised by Haus Steinstrasse e.V. in Leipzig. The selected artworks will be on display at nine locations in Leipzig, including the MdbK. Other partner institutions of the Kijuku are:

HALLE 14
Gallery for Contemporary Art
Maria Montessori School Centre
House of the Book
Children's and Youth Cultural Centre O.S.K.A.R.
State Office for Schools and Education
Open Studio Grünau

From 08.01.2021 the exhibition will be opened digitally. Click here to view the gallery with all pictures of the winners and the laudations online.

Laudation for the winner Marc Horstmann, Brush-Bot the Cleaning Robot, 9 years, DPFA-Regenbogen Primary School:

CLICK
A brush brings movement
When the things we do just don't rest any more'

When then the laughing brush bristles clean
and pollute the dust with music:

Then spirit, technique and craft are brought together
and a work of art has been made out of it.

BOT, the cleaning robot will now whiz around the museum
and steal the show from the Old Masters.
