Out of the Museum Into the Art

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


In this study, we examine how students learn the art of terrain vague photographs through their engagement in the artistic process and its principles and places. At KØS – Museum of Art in Public Spaces, Denmark the educators moved their lessons on a Gordon Matta-Clark exhibition out of the museum and into a public space, similar to the urban spaces Matta-Clark explored in his art. Through art-based research, we examine how this approach supports an activist art museum pedagogy that helps students to understand art's critical potential and the relevance of such an approach for museum pedagogy at a more general level.
