In a museum, the value of things takes centre stage: a cultural, emotional or monetary value. Exhibits are protected, guarded, cared for and restored. But who or what gives an object its value? Can it be changed and if so, how?

In their multimedia live video performance, Australian father-daughter artist duo Rhian and Ivy Hinkley, together with Berlin students from the Thomas Mann Gymnasium, experiment with destroying objects in the most creative way possible in order to reassemble them using modern technologies and traditional skills, giving them a new form and thus a new value.

In the performance, you will experience the phases of destruction, reassembly and the creation of new stories. You can decide for yourself what value the new objects have: The creations will be auctioned off to the highest bidders.

Make it. Break it. Fake it. takes place as part of Humbolding! A School Research Project, a long-term project of the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss at the interface of education and art. Artistic direction: Alice Fleming and Darren O’Donnell.
