A field trip beyond the surface
“It’s a completely different thing to see pictures of artworks than to actually travel to see them, meeting curators and other people in the art business. We got to go a lot deeper than the surface.” This is how Ingrid Orman, who is studying to become an art curator on the Praxis programme, described a spring-time field trip to Athens. She took part to acquaint herself with the Kassel Documenta 14 satellite exhibition.
The trip was part of a course on Athens, run by the head of the master’s programme Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger and Nikos Doulos, who is from Athens. According to Orman, who works as a producer for Espoo City Art Museum EMMA, studying in the Praxis programme has meant a great deal for her professional development. “The quality of teaching is really good.”
