Seeing and discussing art stimulates the students’ ability to analyse what they see. In the encounter with art they practise putting thoughts into words, listening to others and daring to think critically. Moderna Museet offers students the opportunity to understand themselves and their world better through art. Here they can learn about the art in the museum collection and the historical and cultural context that engendered it.
We also offer inspiring Workshop sessions. In a Workshop session the students get to work both practically and theoretically. Taking a specific idea, issue or theme in an artistic oeuvre or a particular work of art as our starting point, we work in groups on conceptual, explorative and process-oriented projects.
