How can we use study collections today, and how well do we really know them?
The Schools of Visual Arts in Copenhagen invites to a symposium about the many rare and common study objects filling the art schools’ corridors, classrooms and storage rooms. Through different perspectives the symposium points at and discusses new values, ways of using and forms of knowledge drawn from the engagement with collected objects in an art educational setting.
