Sculpture Walk for Children

The starting point for this sculpture walk is Egon Möller-Nielsen's sculpture Tufsen in Humlegården, created for children to play in, the first in the world of its kind. Aimed at children, the walk enables us to discuss many of sculptures in the park from their perspective. Towards the end of the 1940´s Möller-Nielsen started making sculptures designed for play, with the intention of introducing both parents and children to the abstract idiom. Tufsen was soon to have many successors around the country.

What is a sculpture? Could a play ground climbing frame be art? Möller-Nielsen's belief was that the mission of art was to “animate the object”. What could he mean by that? What can sculptures look like and why are they made? Do they have to look good?

This sculpture walk is aimed at children between the ages of 4 – 10 years old. It takes place in Humlegården and covers approximately ten of the sculptures in the park.

Meeting point: at Tufsen by Egon Möller-Nielsen, next to the play ground in Humlegården, bus 42 or 44, bus stop Runebergsplan, or bus 1, bus stop Humlegården. Nearest underground stop Stadion, exit Nybrogatan.

Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.
