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.

It’s better to burn out than to fade away

It’s better to burn out than to fade away

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.
