Who Am I?

Dmitri Shostakovich and Anselm Kiefer

The MTPD Who am I? programme focuses on the music of Shostakovich and the artwork of sculptor Anselm Kiefer. Participants work alongside a string quartet, composer and an artist to explore the artwork and music and then to create their own. The programme encourages participants to think about their identity and discuss themes of repression, childhood and self. This programme also provides context related to the WW2 curriculum by exploring the effect the war had on the music and art which followed.

"Thinking about who I was and putting it onto my box made me feel like I was a good friend."
