Description How to achieve that the contemporary art will not be just for the "chosen"? The workshop demonstrates different approaches to learning through contemporary artistic creation in a gallery environment, with the help of a visual artist / teacher / curator. An example is the teachings of the art theorist and art educator from Brno, Igor Zhoř, who argued that an ideal teacher of art is an art teacher and a practitioner in one person. Within a complex understanding of the theme / art subject the emphasis is an inter-picture, linking classical and new art techniques, science and art. This interconnection helps the audience critically think not only on the ontogenetic, technological, but also show the meaning line of contemporary creation, and brings the viewer to the new level - meaningful search. The aim of the workshop is to move from the recipient to the interpreter. In this workshop, participants split into small groups will try out three approaches (practical art activities) to help develop their own perception of fine art and its future mediation. Together we will explore classical techniques inspired by Dalibor Chatrný and Milan Knižák demonstrated at the “ART IS HERE” exhibition, using new media (our own mobile phones) to explore the boundaries of identity and similarity, and finally get into the post-conceptual level of contemporary art in which they blend together both classical and new technologies based on the original artwork.
