Illustrated Stories: Creative Writing

Teachers

  • February 15, 2022 / 19:30

In this workshop for teachers from all branches, we explore creative writing techniques that will motivate students, help them gain new perspectives and encourage creative thinking. In the workshop, we learn more about the artworks in the exhibition and engage in creative writing inspired by comic books. We also seek answers to the questions of “Why is creative writing important?”, “Is it possible to teach creative writing?” and “How can we use it in a classroom environment?". Then, we try out various creative writing activities. At the end of the workshop, we discuss activity ideas that participants can take to their own classrooms.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
