One of the main goals of Eksperimenta! is to initiate sustainable changes in art education, striving toward an educational system that supports the full development of each student’s natural talents. Seeking and finding people with similar ambitions, Eksperimenta! conducted an exclusive video interview in Los Angeles with an advocate of creativity and innovation, Sir Ken Robinson. The following is an excerpt of what was discussed during the video interview.
All visitors of Eksperimenta! were invited to convey their impressions and interpretations of the artworks through drawings. Here are some of the drawing-commentaries on different expositions and artworks.
The artworks have now been wrapped up at the Song Festival Grounds, however…Eksperimenta! did not leave Tallinn Song Festival Grounds for good, but left a permanent mark to the gates.
Do you know, for example, where is the “Tiigi” gate of the Song Festival Grounds? Or the “Oru” gate? Even if you do, you might still get confused. So, in order for the guests to easily locate the different gates during festivals of while just walking around the Song Festival Grounds, Eksperimenta! volunteers marked the gate names with graffiti drawings.
Is art a thing in itself or a means to an end? What is good creation? How to understand and teach art? What is the role of art in the 21st century? Can creativity be learned? In the Radio Night University discussion held on 10 May at Eksperimenta! exhibition, these questions were pondered by Anneli Porri, Raoul Kurvitz and Annely Köster.
