Recent and upcoming projects include Be More Mushroom (as co-artist-in-residence at St Margaret's House), Live to Tell: (A Proposal For) The Madonna Jukebox Musical (Clapham Omnibus & Camden People's Theatre) and Rock n Roll Nature Revelation (with Timberlina, touring to festivals).
Kadir Karababa is an artist educator from London, whose practice encompasses sculpture, painting, printmaking, audio-visual and performative elements making use of archival research, found images and cheap everyday materials that are at hand. His practice is both sociopolitically engaged and deeply rooted in his personal experiences of class, identity and collective memory.
More for families
There is lots for children to see and do at the Museum. Expect a fun-filled day with free trails to follow, sensory explorer bags, and fun throughout the galleries and gardens.
