Our educational programmes are for everyone who doesn't want to look at today's world just from one perspective. Come develop your critical thinking and come up with new ways to look at your surroundings. The two-hour programme is usually linked to current exhibitions or accompanies longer-term projects.
What happens to things that have ceased to serve their purpose? What happens with such a building? What function can be found for it, and shall we even seek any? A Fairy Tale About a Factory tells a story about a dilapidated Holešovice factory,
Every place, every building affects us. The fact that often we aren’t even aware of it is another issue. How do we perceive the building we’re in right now? Once upon a time it was an old, abandoned factory, now it is an exclusive gallery.
Buildings and their narratives are part of our lives, we can face them (standing, sitting, or lying down) in various ways – we define the sense and size of structures. And in a similar way, structures define us.
Where would you like to go if you were able to magically transport yourself? Would it be some familiar place on Earth, a yet-undiscovered island, or a completely fabricated world? Past or future? And what would you bring back with you to our reality?
How did an airship come to “land” on top of the strict and clean features of the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art? Why is it called Gulliver? What is it made of and what makes it so “different”?
What do we do when there is a potentially dangerous situation occurring in our vicinity? Do we intervene, or do we leave it up to others? The Ordinary Heroism programme presents a psychological phenomenon known as the bystander effect.
Are my abilities inherited? Do my own mistakes keep me from trying again? Or can I exceed my limits? This educational programme, which uses the methodology of Professor Philip Zimbardo’s Heroic Imagination Project.
The internet changed the world of advertising. It has become even more omnipresent, but not only that. It is increasingly more difficult for us to distinguish what is and isn’t advertising.
Has an ad on Google every surprised you by promoting something that you are expecting to be delivered tomorrow by courier? Don’t you sometimes get the feeling that your life is being controlled by some sort of algorithm?
Teachers play a key role in the transfer of inspiring ideas and topics from the DOX Centre into a school's everyday curriculum. Several times a year, we therefore hold teaching workshops and offer premises for various educational conferences.
The DOX Centre is one of the founders of the Success for Every Pupil initiative, an informal network of organizations that together are learning to develop a teaching culture focused on the success of every pupil in (not only) every school.
