Commenting on art
The activity « Commenting on art » lends more weight to the visitor’s voice than a few lines in the guest book. After several visits the invited group expresses reactions, questions and ideas surrounding an exhibit through words, images or sounds , to share with the rest of the public. These different perspectives enrich museum visits for everyone.
In 2019 «Commenting on art» invited hearing impaired and deaf people to an exchange on the exhibition MELANIE MANCHOT – Open Stage. Back Stage. The result of the project will be displayed from may 19th 2019 as an enriching addition to the exhibition.
As a reaction to the artworks, short videoclips of sign poetry were created in the project «Commenting on art»: poetic gestures that cannot be translated litterally. Through this the hearing impaired and deaf participants share their point of view with you. The videos can be viewed on your smartphone or tablet (can be borrowed at the reception) directly in front of the artworks.
« Making art » offers individuals, but also groups, the opportunity to experience an exhibit from a practical point of view, by experimenting with and learning about an artistic technique. Visiting an exhibit will be enhanced by a practical activity, involving the senses. Thus, different facets of the artistic experience are introduced and the visit becomes a memorable event, also for those who might feel hesitant about engaging with contemporary art.
