Creativity in interspaces
What can art do in schools? For one year we were as a Team of artists continously present in a school. We researched, made contact and developed actions, interventions, communication processes, objects, rituals, spaces and performances. The publication about the project contains documentary material and contributions from fourteen different authors on the subject of learning atmospheres, cultural development in schools and artistic processes.
