Make your own superhero! Performance and Workshop with Super Taus

Jameel Arts Centre offers various workshops and tours for children, juniors and teenagers. The workshops feature a guided tour of the galleries, followed by a hands-on art activity inspired by artist themes, techniques and processes. Participants create a symbolic and tangible element inspired by their time at the Centre.

In this specially commissioned artist-led performance and workshop, Super Taus, alter ego of artist Taus Makhacheva, guides children to channel their inner superheroes. Following Super Taus’s Quick Fix performance, the session delves into a discussion about overcoming obstacles, fears, and ways to be heroic in our everyday lives. Through these exchanges, participants create superhero puppets to take home.

This workshop is suitable for children aged between 6-12 years old. No prior art experience is required. All materials and equipment are provided.

About Taus Makhacheva

Taus Makhacheva (b.1983, Moscow) creates works that explore the restless connections between historical narratives and fictions of cultural authenticity. Often humourous, her art considers the resilience of images, objects and bodies emerging out of stories and personal experiences. Her methodology involves the reworking of materials, landscapes and monuments, pushing against walls, opening up ceilings and proliferating institutional spaces with a cacophony of voices.

Makhacheva holds a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths (2007) and has an MFA from the Royal College of Art (2013).

Selected exhibitions include the Yokohama Triennale (2020), Lahore Biennale (2020), Kaunas Biennial (2019), Lyon Biennale (2019), Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (2018), Liverpool Biennial (2018), Manifesta (2018), Yinchuan Biennale (2018), Venice Biennale (2017), Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art (2017), Shanghai Biennale (2016), Kyiv Biennial (2015), Sharjah Biennial (2013) and the Moscow Biennale (2011).
