Miniskirts and bell-bottoms, flowers in the hair and necklaces, batik, patchwork, and jeans—the fashion of the hippies and the flower power movement was varied and colorful. The many items of clothing in the summer of love exhibition will be explored. What is special about them and are they still hip, or back in style, today? At the peak of the hippie movement in 1967 fashion was also a protest, reflecting a political or social attitude and a sign of freedom. Women expressed their desire for self-determination, and with the reuse of old materials upcycling was born. In the group, the function of clothing will be discussed and then you can design your own T-shirts, necklaces, or buttons, which will be presented in a fashion show concluding the event. Don’t forget to bring a lunch packet with you!

Summer vacation is about to begin. The girl Gustav has a boy’s name but she’s not interested in boys yet. Then she meets Moon, a strange boy who wears glitter leggings and a T-shirt with stars on it. While Gustav’s mother searches for the meaning of life on Mallorca and her father rediscovers his love of music, the two experience a summer of change discovering parties, music, and first love. After a reading by multiple award-winning Berlin author Lara Schützsack, textiles can be printed in stencil technique.

Painted Skateboard at ShopPopulaire

Skateboard Painting
Children’s Workshop (aged 8–12)
Saturday, October 19 and 26, 11 am–1 pm

Registrations at:

At the beginning of the 1960s, the surf movement was transferred to asphalt and skateboarding was born. Young people were enthusiastic about the new street culture, about the design, music, and attitude toward life. Today artists still show their love of skateboarding with pictures and graffiti on the bottoms of the boards. In addition, many skateboard artists have made record covers and posters, some of which are on view in the summer of love exhibition. They can serve as inspiration for your own pictures in the style of your choice: comics, painting, or drawing; with a lot of color or in black and white. The designs are developed on paper and later can be transferred to the skateboard at home.
