Educational programme from the Role(s) in art catalogue for the ULTRASUPERNATURAL exhibition

the role of "viewer"

What all is covered by the term contemporary art and what paths does art show us? What is a work of art and how can we recognize it? Where is the border between such a work and its author? And where is the border between exhibited work and viewer-participant? Does the story of the work itself or the life story of the artist play a greater role?

The conviction that the viewer participates in the creation of the work provides this programme its main basis for an exciting search: a search for works of art and common utilitarian items in the gallery. During an interactive viewing of a current exhibition and during an art workshop, participants are encouraged to express themselves actively. And various clues lead us to the realization that each one of us can have “art in our pocket”, and that art can even be created from the contents of our own pockets.
