Museum as Playground: Languages All Around US: Exploring Language in Museum

‘Languages All Around Us’ – Language is everywhere we go: at home, on the street, in school, in writing, in pictures, or when we speak with each other. Language is something that shows us the world, but also something we learn. What languages can we find in an exhibition? What can we say and learn with these new languages – can they help us draw without pencils or speak without words?

‘Languages All Around Us’ is a 5-day workshop where, in an English-speaking environment, participants are invited to think about language and art through Julien Prévieux’s Pinch to Zoom exhibition at Art Sonje. For each of the 5 sessions, participants will look closely at different artworks and engage in activities, individually and in groups, to explore ways of seeing, doing and saying.

Encouraged to listen and speak in English, participants will use their minds, eyes, ears, hands, arms, and feet, as well as their curiosity, to draw, perform, question, and play with ideas at Art Sonje and in the exhibition.
