At this workshop, we get together with the children to dig into a star map and unearth the secrets of the stars we see in the night sky, plumb the depths of outer space to explore stars and galaxies. We learn about the sun, the closest one to our Earth, and then, other stars and life phases in the distant depths of the universe. We explore the nebula-supernova black hole forms that occur at the birth and death of super stars. With the help of interactive practices that stimulate imagination, we try to perceive how far stars are from our Earth, examine constellations in 3D. During this workshop, we enhance cognitive, socio-emotional and psychomotor skills through the inquiry-based learning method.

Doublethinking About Big Brother!
11 Quotes from 1984

Our Doublethink Double vision exhibition’s title alludes to George Orwell’s seminal work 1984 and presents a selection that includes Tracey Emin, Marcel Dzama, Anselm Kiefer, Bruce Nauman, Raymond Pettibon, and Thomas Ruff, as well as Turkish artists, tracing the steps of pluralistic thought through works of art.

Moscow Conceptualists

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.

Baby King

Baby King

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
