Participatory Art in the Classroom

During the dissemination workshop "Participatory Art in the Classroom", which took place on 17 October 2014 at Goethe-Institut Paris, approx. 30 participants exchanged about participatory artistic practice dealing with the theme of First World War. This dissemination event was closely linked to the sound installation "2014 Horchposten – Postes d’ècoute 1914", presented in autumn 2014 at Goethe-Institut Paris and several further Goethe-Instituts and partner institutions in France. In practical workshops the participants got to know concrete artistic methodologies on how to integrate participatory practice into their classrooms and, thus, offering their students a new approach to history.
