The museums participating on the project aim at re-evaluating and rethinking their resources: archives, collections and working methods in order to develop their potentials by creating knowledge and connecting the various types of audiences. The traditional roles of the contemporary art museum are changing: its most important activities are no longer merely storage, studying and exhibiting of artworks, but also an active involvement with the museum’s audience. For this reason, the project will develop combination of exhibitions ans educational programs based on participatory approach, intended for both, the audience and the staff.

Can everyday objects – a mirror, sellotape, pencils and markers – become artistic materials? Can a walk home be considered an artistic happening? What creative tools did artists of the 1960s and 1970s use to express their critical thinking and communicate with their public and the community?
Discover the answers at Performing the Exhibition: ART-ACT-BOX. Guided by a dance artist who uses items from a box, gestures and speech to perform some pieces by the artists in question, the public is involved as living elements of the choreography and become exhibition performers themselves. The number of participant is limited to 20.
ART-ACT-BOX was realised as part of the Performing the Museum project, co-financed by the European Commission, supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, the Regional Secretariat for Culture and Information of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, and the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia.
ART-ACT-BOX is an educational project and is performed exclusively outside museums and galleries. The materials are used solely for educational, non-commercial purposes.
