ARTIST AT WORK
COLLABORATIVE PROJECT WITH THE SCHOOLS, COLEGIO BEATO SIMÓN DE ROJAS IN MÓSTOLES AND PABLO PICASSO IN PARLA
SCHOOL YEAR 2014 – 2015
This year we will begin a new line of work in which two artists will undertake two art projects in two public centres in the suburbs of Madrid. Given the disappearance of art teaching from formal education, we consider it an interesting challenge to introduce artists into educational institutions with a view to developing multidisciplinary projects involving subjects that, in theory, are not associated with art. At the same time, one of the fundamental goals of this project is to reflect on the long-term impact capacity of the projects undertaken by these artists. This is why we are interested in researching how the artists might affect the education centre and viceversa, how the public school in particular can give back its experience to both the artists and to the education department of CA2M itself. In this sense, these two projects will be assessed by external researchers with the aim of prototyping and analysing these experiences in detail.
