Objectives
This course is open to teachers in the secondary school level, across all disciplines, who wish to deepen their knowledge of modern and contemporary art through a selection of works in an exhibition currently on view at the museum.

The objective of this training is twofold. First, it is an invitation for teachers to discover the exhibition Face-à-Face at Mudam. Secondly, it seeks to build an educational pathway around artists and their creative practices, with the aim of developing inter- and multidisciplinary modules while promoting the possibilities of a cultural partnership.

Knowledge
The participants will be familiar with different forms of expression of contemporary and modern art.

Know-how
Participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate curiosity and open-mindedness
  • communicate with cultural partners
  • implement methods that promote visual thinking and creativity

Skills
Participants will be able to:

  • formulate cross-disciplinary lessons
  • identify significant visual and cultural contexts
  • experiment with different artistic techniques and processes
  • conceive educational units around a work or an artist

Content
Mudam and the Moderne Galerie – Saarlandmuseum Saarbrücken have initiated an ambitious collaboration with a new cross-border project, placing their respective collections into dialogue. The exhibitions, simultaneously on view in Luxembourg and Saarbrücken, will give visitors the opportunity to discover two major collections of modern and contemporary art in the Greater Region.

Mudam will present around thirty works from the painting, sculpture collections, drawing and photography collections of the Saarlandmuseum. These pieces date from the first half of the 20th century and represent a variety of artistic movements, from Expressionism, Surrealism and Constructivism, up until the beginning of the 1960s through the works of artists associated with the ZERO group. The works will be in dialogue with the pieces in the Mudam collection, the majority of which were created between 1980–2000, establishing bridges between modern and contemporary art. Playing on the resonances and differences between these eras, the installation will address different themes, such as the representation of the body and movement, the notion of the portrait and the relation between artist and model, and the figuration of tangible phenomena such as metamorphosis or the transformation of matter.

Methodological Approach
The course will unfold across different approaches to visual inquiry and object-based learning such as:

  • observation and learning how to look
  • visual comprehension, articulation and association
  • the reading, interpretation and analysis of an image and its educational uses
  • the visualisation of a creative process
  • the organisation and development of visual knowledge transferred to an educational context
  • individual artistic creation with an emphasis on practical experimentation
  • the conception and development of projects and individual educational modules
