Walden # 3 or The Child as a Medium

Exhibition and conference

Providing aesthetic instruction for young people is considered to be one of the largest cultural challenges of our times. This project featured a conference on the history of the concept of aesthetic instruction - from H. D. Thoreau's utopia Walden, published in the mid-19th century, to approaches derived from system theory. At the same time, an exhibition showed historic and contemporary artworks created by children.
