EUROPALIA ABC-STUDIO BRANCUSI OCTOBER 2019 – JANUARY 2020
Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) is without a doubt one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His fascinating sculptures made him a pioneer of modernism and even today are a source of inspiration for numerous artists. But apart from being a sculptor, he was also an extraordinary photographer who left behind a lesser-known but wonderful oeuvre. This fall, EUROPALIA is bringing Brancusi to Belgium for the very first time with a large exhibition in BOZAR.
ABC STUDIO BRANCUSI was developed as part of the exhibition and forms a separate space in the exhibition where young and old can browse books, explore and discover the sculptor in themselves. There are also interactive play- and work-stations, a story stage and installations to get started yourself.

ARTS & EDUCATION
What can education learn from the arts about the practice of education?
Elliot W. Eisner argues that the distinctive forms of thinking needed to create artistically crafted work are relevant not only to what students do, they are relevant to virtually all aspects of what we do, from the design of curricula, to the practice of teaching, to the features of the environment in which students and teachers live.
Originally given as the John Dewey Lecture for 2002, Stanford University.
Wat kan het onderwijs van de kunsten leren ?
Elliot W. Eisner stelt dat de specifieke denkvormen die vereist zijn voor het creëren van kunstwerken niet alleen van belang zijn voor wat leerlingen doen, maar voor nagenoeg alles wat we doen, van het vormgeven van curricula, het onderwijzen zelf, tot het ontwerpen van de omgevingen waarin leerlingen en leraars leven.
Origineel uitgesproken in 2002 als John Dewey Lecture aan de universiteit van Stanford.

An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
