Art Lesson: Educational Role of Museums

Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum will round off their exhibition program organized to mark its 25th  Anniversary by inviting visitors to reflect on the educational role of museums in todays society. Art Lesson will be formed by various proposals that will happen in time with different performances throughout its opening to the public and in space, occurring different places in the museum.

Art Lesson project has been conceived as an organic entity which will take shape over time. The exhibition features the work of contemporary artists such as Antoni Muntadas, Cinthia Marcelle, Dennis Adams, Eva Kot`átková, Dora Garcia, Pavel Kogan, Erwin Wurm, Rineke Djikstra or Pipilotti Rist, in which they question where the knowledge resides, the museum is spoken of as an personal experience and seeks to transform the role of the viewer and its place within the museum.

For the first time, the museum will also open as a space for creation with the call for two residence grants that will allow creators to work together with the educational team, both during the preparation process and during the exhibition itself. The objective is to build links between the most contemporary cultural production and the museum, between its works and the work of educators. A complete educational program will also be added to the project, and will allow the public to become an active agent and become part of this process of experimentation and research.
