Differences in the Same and Same in the Difference
Development of a teaching method focused on encountering and imaginative dialogue from the Kristiansand Intensive week in 2022.
Encounters at Sørlandets Kunstmuseum-SKMU with pupils from KNUDEN Cultural School of Kristiansand.
Pupils were invited to imagine themselves in different time settings, from the past, present, and future in a very relaxed and laid-back environment where one of the prospective teachers took the role of a pupil participating in the exercises. Pupils were able to choose one medium out of three, either collage, drawing or painting. Works are executed repeatedly, first in 2 minutes and then in 20 minutes and finally while blindfolded. Various questions were asked during the workshop:
- Is it relative when we say something is good?
- Does the picture change when we look at it from far away and then very close?
- Does a 2 minute picture look better than a 20 minutes picture?
