The workshop was held on August 14, 2021 and investigated the suitcase

The suitcase was the object of investigation in the virtual drawing workshop “What object is this?”, offered by Educativo MCB.

Suitcases are emblematic objects and have a deep relationship with the act of travelling, getting around or migrating. They are the ones who carry what is essential when someone, for a short or long period, distances themselves from their home. What the suitcase holds can indicate where you are starting, where you are going, or what you want to accomplish.

Bags that travel for tourism have a different baggage than bags that migrate in exile. Bags arriving from vacation pack different luggage from bags traveling for work reasons. There are also suitcases that, instead of traveling, become furniture where items worthy of memory are kept.

When opening a suitcase, it might even be possible – from the observation of objects that are dear to us – to draw a generic profile about our personalities.

How are your bags used?

About the MCB Educational
The Educational MCB proposes practices that articulate looking, doing and thinking so that visitors can assume the role of researchers, researching the contents that the museum offers in a contemporary perspective. The idea is to create challenges for participants in educational activities to raise questions from their own experiences and discover new meanings in relating the visit to the MCB with their lives.
