LAND:SCAPES Educational Project
In 2018 MOCAK the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow will present the exhibition LAND:SCAPES, related to the social and cultural identity of contemporary people, especially when viewed through the prism of contemporary art.
The project will comprise a series of free-admission events, including guided tours of the exhibition Motherland in Art and accompanying workshops.
The planned events refer to concepts such as memory, language, territory, history, and identity. The main goal of the project is to find an answer to the question: ‘What does our homeland mean to us?’ The starting point for educational activities are the works presented at the temporary exhibition Motherland in Art and the works in the MOCAK Collection.
The project is targeted at all age groups: children, youth, adults and seniors, aiming for intergenerational integration. The sessions will be conducted by members of MOCAK team, artists and external educators.
The organisers aim to support people with limited access to culture. Students from local schools, Krakow students and adult residents of the city and surrounding areas, as well as the patients of the Józef Babiński Specialist Hospital in Krakow and detainees of the Detention Centre in Krakow have been invited to participate in the project.
An educational publication will be published to accompany the project. It will include tasks that stimulate individual learning about contemporary art and challenging the themes raised.
