Cultural learning activities on two levels
MONUMENTA’s learning methods and activities are not about learned discourse or hierarchically imposed knowledge. The team of 50 cultural educators - enthusiastic, passionate about contemporary art, token to pass on tools for understanding - is there to inform, create dialogue and respond to questions. With a wealth of in-depth knowledge on Daniel Buren’s work, the cultural educators want more than anything else to share their knowledge and “learn together”. In the end, the cultural educator in this context is not the depositary of an innate science, but rather the person who seeks to enrich a concrete dialogue, ready to be surprised by the variety and perspicacity of viewpoints expressed by those with whom they engage. MONUMENTA seeks to make engagement with Daniel Buren’s work an enjoyable, surprising discovery, an experience touching the individual in the depths of his humanity.
