Art is almost always physical, something the Old Greeks were already aware of. Besides fun and relaxation there are a lot of art disciplines where the body plays an important role ((endurance) performance, presentation). As well as visual and theoretical knowledge in art schools, there should also be a place for the physical in its curriculum, says Johan Wagenaar.
Johan Wagenaar will be tutor of the tutor group Crafts & Materials until the first of janary 2018. He is the substitute of Gijs Assmann, This is the ultimate opportunity for Johan to break through the taboo about physical training within art schools.
‘it should be perfectly normal that, besides lessons for the mind, we should work on the bearer of that all: the body. The physical experience will help in addition to the making process.’
