Art Centre Pasquart
The Art Centre Pasquart (Biel, CH) is one of the most important museums for contemporary art in Switzerland, promoting an awareness of current artistic production through its programme of regional, national and international exhibitions. From January to July 2009 I got a Leonardo/StudEX scholarship and worked in the department of art education in both the Art Center Pasquart and the Museum Neuhaus in Biel/Bienne (CH). During this period I conceived activities for the spring "Aktionswochen": school classes from Kindergarten to Gymnasium are invited to participate free of charge in a 1 1/2 hour long workshop and, through observation and their own artistic work, to analyse a theme, an artist or a technique. Moreover I supervise the workshops and wrote a pedagogical dossier for teachers. After this experience I stayed in the team (Médiation Culturelle) for three years and kept on organising guided tours, educational activities and workshops.
