Learning programmes

Here you will find descriptions of instructional programmes for 1-hour and 2-hour sessions for the second to tenth classes, secondary schools and teachers’ colleges. The session takes place in the exhibitions, but a 2-hour session may also include a workshop visit, where the participants have an opportunity to learn through making and express themselves creatively.

Louisiana Learning works in partnership with many primary schools, secondary schools and organizations on longer-term programmes. They offer an opportunity to work in depth and develop content together. Louisiana Learning is currently working with the partners shown below. If you have suggestions for exciting joint projects, we would like to hear from you.

... Dijkstra’s observations result in images that resonate between the posed and the natural.

Dijkstra is always looking for the specificity and individuality of each person; the way people distinguish themselves from others. However she is also able to give every person who poses for her a more general, almost universal meaning – something that echoes within each of us.

... The artists in the exhibition are interested in the human condition: how life can increasingly be lived in a virtual space and how it affects the individual’s self-understanding to move between a physical and a virtual world.  

BEING THERE consists mainly of large installations, several of them video works, which envelop the viewer, but it also includes works in media such as sculpture and painting. Several of the works have been created specifically for the exhibition.
