International seminar Mediations of Art

23 October 2015 from 11 to 16.30



Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška is organising a seminar entitled
Mediations of Art. Pedagogues, professionals and curators are invited to participate. As the seminar is organised in the context of an international project, the lectures will be held in English and open to the broader public, too. The seminar will take place on
23 October 2015 from 11 to 16.30.

The lectures will focus on the ways of communicating art to visitors with the aim of improving the understanding of, interest in and experience of contemporary art, and on good practices in educational and cultural institutions and independent organisations.

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška is hosting an international project Performing the Museum. The project is supported by the European Union as a part of its Creative Europe programme. It is organised in cooperation with the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, The Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina, Novi Sad, and the Antoni Tapies Foundation from Barcelona. The two-year project is focused on the role of the contemporary museum. Nowadays, the museum is no longer just an institution that keeps, studies and exhibits artworks, but rather an institution that actively cooperates with its audiences. Hence, the project is developing a combination of exhibitions, educational programmes and activities based on a participatory approach, creating knowledge and introducing new models of mediating art.
