The DOX Centre's educational concept is based on the very idea of creating an institution on the border between art and non-art - an institution that is interested in the world around it, that tries to comment, reflect and explore it. Its interdisciplinary nature and multi-genre nature allows us to approach the problems of our society and world from different angles. Thematic exhibitions, as the main medium of communication, are an interface that allows for the development of various activities across the spectrum, from specific programmes to long-term projects.
All communication and mediation is content. The mediation of an art exhibition and an educational activity are different. Mediation by education is not meant to be privileging but helpful, in the sense of understanding and dealing with change, as a motivation for creativity; finding one's place in the world.
The rapid changes of the contemporary world cannot be completely predicted. Creativity is a weapon against fear of the future. Creativity = engagement. This corresponds to the transformation of the role of the spectator into a co-creator of the work. Interactivity, entering the game - physical, mental, spiritual.
Perceptions of what is and is not art are changing. Just as the world, society and its problems are changing. Change makes learning and education absolutely essential - we need to reckon with constant change and have an open 'mental window' for change, to have the capacity to change ourselves.
We are not interested in the passive spectator - the spectating consumer, but in the spectator - student. The student is learning, searching, imperfect and still on a journey of discovery and self-discovery. It is not about aestheticization and mythicization, but about process, experience and experience. And reflection.
