Summer is here, and with it comes the second edition of the Summer School for Teachers. Taking place from August 23rd to 25th 2023 at Kunsthalle Prague (not only). It promises an extraordinary experience. Explore contemporary art through your own creativity and interdisciplinary connections. Prepare for encounters with leading art theorists, workshops led by photographers, sculptors, and architects. We extend a warm invitation to educators of all levels! Join us and unlock the boundless inspiration that awaits at the intersection of art and education.
What will you experience?
Together, we will explore the evolution of photography in the second half of the 20th century within the exhibition "Bohemia: History of an Idea, 1950-2000." Under the guidance of contemporary photographers, we will create our own artworks. Through the projects "Building Sculptures and Girl with a Dove" by Krištof Kintera, we will focus on the relationship between sculpture and architecture, crafting our own concrete objects. We will also witness the unique performance by Alex Mirutziu. Finally, we will delve into various approaches to collecting and exhibiting art, examining Ovidiu Sandor's collection as well as selected works from Kunsthalle Prague.
