Call for Papers for IDEAlaboratories

IDEAlaboratories is a programme for integrating contemporary art and education, which will take place during the Contemporary Art Triennial for School Students Eksperimenta! from 28th until 30th of April 2011, in Tallinn, Estonia.

IDEAlaboratories will consist of two parallel programmes, which will partly merge: a programme for the art educators and a programme for the school students in the age of 14 – 19. IDEAlaboratories will bring together art education experts, researchers, practitioners and school students.

We are looking for intriguing and inspiring presentations / workshops, which would lead to a better understanding of the essence of contemporary art and would contribute to integrating / translating contemporary art into the art teaching process. As we highly value in-depth presentations which interact with the audience, so we have planned the length of the presentations to be 45 – 60 minutes and the workshops 60 – 90 minutes.


Researchers and practitioners in the visual arts and art education are invited to submit abstracts for peer-reviewed papers, presentations and practical workshops within the themes and sub themes:

28th of April The Art of Thinking: how to support and develop creative and critical thinking. Conceptual art, idea as art. The end of art work as an object. Fading of the borders between art forms.

30th of April The Art of Creating: how the above mentioned are combined to reach a practical output in the creative process. The best practices from practitioners to practitioners.
