- Back in those days
tour of the exhibition and workshop - schools and families
from 17 December 2013 to 2 March 2014
The Art Workshop offers guided tours of the exhibition and workshops for schools and families. In the exhibition we explore the vocabulary of a new form of art: space, both inside and outside the frame; time, to create and to observe; the body, with or without a setting. All of these vocabularies tell the story of years of tradition and experimentation in a determined effort to break through boundaries and to open up new horizons.
