Committed photography
With Carole Melchior
Between February and June, Mudam’s Publics Department invited photographer Carole Melchior to lead a multi-disciplinary workshop with secondary school photography students based on the Al río / To the River exhibition by artist Zoe Leonard. The workshop culminates in an exhibition at Mudam. Melchior addressed questions about the development of a photographic project that could provoke reflection and allow us to imagine areas that bring people together. Using an investigative approach, the students carefully observed different urban or rural places, the species found there (plants, animals, humans), their interactions, their entanglements, their space for co-cultivation. Through visual notes gleaned over the course of the day, they proceeded to rethink landscape in a broad sense and reflected on notions of territory, identity and borders in contemporary societies. Come to Mudam Studio and see, through the eyes of our young artists, the results of this workshop!

Frontières, Borders, Grenzen
By the 11e G cours intensifié en arts plastiques of the Schengen-Lyzeum
The 11th grade G class of the Schengen Lyzeum, in close collaboration with the pedagogical department at Mudam, has spent a term reflecting on the theme of ‘borders'. What is a border? Do we need borders? These questions are all the more relevant in Schengen, where borders seem to be disappearing but remain impassable lines for some. How do young people feel about these borders today? How do they experience them in their daily lives? The students present the very personal results of this project in the Mudam Studio during the closing weekend of the Zoe Leonard. Al río / To the River exhibition.
