*Please note that New Museum “First” Saturdays for Families this month will take place on the second Saturday of the month due to the Labor Day holiday the weekend before.

Have you ever missed a special place? How did you remember it? Come explore the exhibition “Ostalgia,” which brings together the work of more than fifty artists from twenty countries across Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics. This exhibition takes its title from the German word ostalgie, a term that emerged in the 1990s to describe a sense of longing and nostalgia for the era before the collapse of the Communist Bloc. Many of the works offer a view into aspects of life and art under Communism and in the new post-Soviet countries. After exploring the galleries, engage in an interactive hands-on project examining ideas of memory, place, and history through projects inspired by artworks in the exhibition.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children four to fifteen years old, and includes free New Museum admission for up to two adults per family. Children under eighteen are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Space is limited and tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Your entire party must be present; tickets will not be given to partial parties.
