The contemporary art triennial for school students Eksperimenta! 2014 combined the objectivity of science with the subjectivity of art. We wanted to give young people a chance to speak about what matters to them: from (il)legal drugs, alienation, (self-)censorship, media influence, sustainable development, ecology, semiotics and first impressions to observations of nature and self-reflection.

There is no Reason Eksperimenta! shouldn’t Expand until It Becomes the Size of the World’s Principal Art Fairs! James Elkins
Prof. James Elkins gave feedback to Eksperimenta! art work. He comments: “Eksperimenta! was fascinating. Given the move from traditional media such as painting toward media such as digital video editing, performance, and digital photography, it makes perfect sense to bridge the gap between secondary schools and the higher levels of art education. Not every artist needs to master a traditional medium in order to express herself, especially now that Garage Band, Final Cut, Photoshop, and so many other tools are widely available. There is no reason Eksperimenta! shouldn’t expand until it becomes the size of the world’s principal art fairs!”
