Kunstacademie aan Zee

Adult students at the Kunstacademie aan Zee (Art Academy at the Seaside, part-time arts education Ostend), browsed through Mu.ZEE’s collection and each chose a favourite work which they studied for four months. During their painting, drawing, interactive media, ceramics, graphic arts, sculpture and spatial art workshops they developed an original dialogue with their chosen artwork: an answer, a sequel, their own interpretation, a humorous note, a thought or a translation. Lecturers supervised them at a distance, but the approach, the imagery and the treatment are personal and individual. 48 students participated. Mu.ZEE shows a selection of 10 creations, each with the artwork from Mu.ZEE that inspired it and with which it is in dialogue.
