EMST AT HOME

MARCH - MAY 2020

EMST EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Creative at home

With this program we urged our younger friends to explore the educational leaflets that are uploaded on the EMST website (in Greek) and become creative. In the following video we present the works that were created from March until May 2020.

In particular, the name of an artist and their artwork were given on EMST’s facebook and instagram, as well as the corresponding leaflet in which they could find further information. 

Taking as a starting point what they read on their own or together with their parents, they could create their own contemporary artworks (paintings, constructions, video) and send them to us at learning@emst.gr under the theme EMST at home.

The works were posted on EMST’s facebook and instagram. You can find the educational leaflets in Greek here

Each of us is a work of art

Janine Antoni’s installation Slumber, 1994 inspired Zainab to weave her dreams for the future; Amin takes us to Iran with the Swedish Flying Carpet, 2001 by Kostis Velonis to celebrate Nowruz with him, the traditional Iranian festival of spring; Maya identified herself with Costas Tsoclis’ Harpooned Fish, 1985.

Contemporary art inspires, evokes emotions, memories and dreams. On the EMST facebook and instagram we will post stories, intertwined with artworks of the EMST collection, as narrated by those who participated in the project Face Forward… into my home.

You can send your own story, anonymously or named, to learning@emst.gr and share it with everyone via the EMST social media. Because, as Bibiche said, “each of us is a work of art, with its own story and its own messages.”
