Thinking about alternative path making. How to make the complex sensible?

Breaking Patterns

Duchamp in the Garden is a programme of workshops and an exhibition for primary school children aged 8 to 12. Linked to the (re) project, the workshops take as their starting point instructional works aimed at (re)connecting to life. These artistic instructions, which have been specially designed for the project by Swiss and international artists, invite theoretical or practical interaction with nature in the city, activate creativity and lead, for example, to performative actions or to drawing.

Breaking Patterns demonstrates that the mediation of visual art can benefit from digital technology to break down geographical boundaries, integrate individuals who cannot physically visit an exhibition space, offer a participatory format and even propose a new medium for artistic creation. Besides providing an escape from one’s daily reality, these Zoom free workshops are an opportunity to address significant political issues, to create, to reflect together on future perspectives but also to offer a more personal and intimate approach to artistic practices and actors of contemporary art.

Artistic Thinking

The workshops of artistic thinking considers intuition and emotion as productive and an essential accompaniment to a rational approach to contemporary issues. Whether they are internal questions relating to group dynamics or more global questions relating to sustainability, digitization or identity, the method is based on the application of artistic strategies and practices. The decoding of historical and contemporary works of art selected for each workshop leads participants to a process of observation, connection and creation.
