This workshop focuses on the artists and the works included in the exhibition Ghosts and Spectres – Shadows of History. It provides the opportunity for educators to explore how contemporary art addresses issues and concerns of our times. The workshop engages with artistic practices and prepares for visits with students by providing educational tools as entry points to the exhibition, and assisting educators in identifying aspects of the exhibition that might be relevant to their classes. It suggests techniques for exploring both the visual arts and other areas of daily encounters.
