The program Max – Artists in Residence at Schools, inititated by Stiftung Brandenburger Tor and awarded the Future Prize for Cultural Education 2018 – THE OLYMP! of the Kulturstiftung der Länder and the Deutsche Bank Foundation, enables artists from the most diverse genres to set up their studios in a primary school for at least two years. An atmosphere of mutual inspiration makes the joint artistic process possible, because this is where the work on one’s own work meets the encounter with teachers and students. The studio as a space within the school in demarcation to the classroom provides impulses for the integration of aesthetic education in everyday school life.
Artists initiate open educational processes through continuous, collective work with the students in the studio. They make new learning experiences in their everyday school life, freed from the pressure to perform and evaluation. For the teachers and students, the studio becomes an inner-school space for experiencing artistic work processes. New ways of researching, learning and exploring are opened up. In this way, aesthetic education can be experienced in the context of the school. Beyond the subject lessons, artistic working and thinking processes are stimulated and presented in an exhibition at the end of the school year. The work in the studio and the exchange of ideas with all those involved provide impulses to promote the cultural development of the school.
