An educational experiment where photography students of The American School of the Hague were guided within their artistic process by artists Gino Anthonisse, Verena Blok and Jaya Pelupessy.
In collaboration with the American School of The Hague (ASH), Nest has developed an educational programme in which students are guided by professionals from the arts in their artistic process. The photography students of ASH were invited by Nest to further develop their own visual work and to take a first step towards professionalisation. Under the guidance of the artists, the students researched the underlying relationships in meaning and context within a group exhibition by means of activating working methods. Nest aims to introduce and cultivate contemporary art thinking that is more accessible to a younger audience: namely secondary school students through reason, articulation and action.
Over a period of six months, artists in their role as mentor have guided the students, giving constructive feedback, which has led to the group exhibition ‘Just a Position’.
