Jeroen Lutters guest curator exhibition Mieke Bal | Art out of necessity at Museum Jan Cunen

What makes art a necessity? According to Mieke Bal, it is "useful, even necessary, to look at the world from the perspective of art.". Her point of view touches on guest curator Jeroen Lutters' method Art-Based Learning, in which he advocates learning not about but from art. Art awakens your imagination and makes new possibilities conceivable. Jeroen Lutters is Professor at AeCT Professorship for Art education as Critical Tactics at ArtEZ.
