Gingerbread House 2020
7 December 2020 - 10 January
The year's incarnation of Gingerbread House is a unique, fragrant exhibition made up of imaginatively designed and constructed gingerbread houses. But it is also a competition in which children, adults, amateurs and professionals alike are invited to create side by side. This year we've created unique AR/3D models out of all our contributions. This means you get to experience the entire exhibition digitally on our website without ever leaving your home.
Last day to vote for your favourite entry is December 15. The winners are announced on December 20, 2020 on our Facebook page 13.00 CEST.
Each year a jury selects a winner for each competition category. A special prize is also given to the visitors’ favourite. The public can choose to vote either on site at the museum or on our website.
30 years of Gingerbread Houses at ArkDes!
You might be surprised to learn that the exhibition Gingerbread House has been exhibited at ArkDes annually since 1990. This year we are celebrating our thirtieth anniversary and, in honour of this milestone, are creating a particularly festive exhibition filled to the brim with festive feeling!
2020 Theme: Distance
Some distances can be measured, like a metre, a light year, or the path that you travel every morning on your way to work or school. Other distances are just a sensation, like feeling close to someone or the feeling of living in separate worlds. This year, the distance between us has increased – both on the street and between countries. But perhaps we have also grown closer to each other, helped one another and spent time together in new ways? What do the distances in your life look like?
