From a home to a museum

The house is now a museum packed with magnificent works of art. We are going to look at some of them today. We have been catapulted back to the nineteenth century! Let’s find out how people lived in those days and what was customary. We will come across old objects and artworks but also a couple of new ones.

There’s more!

Meet artist Kiluanji Kia Henda! Pfff, that’s a hard name to get your tongue round. Kiluanji was born in Angola, a country in Africa. He lives there in the capital Luanda. And he loves to fantasize. Once he even invented a story of being an astronaut and going into space. He took photographs of his mission and told everyone the story. Do you like to use your imagination, like Kiluanji?
