I hope that the encounter with these works will create interest, raise questions and stimulate students to further explore the world of contemporary art. John Kaldor
MOVE: Video art in schools is a collection of video art works distributed to secondary schools for use in the classroom. Twelve leading Australian artists were commissioned for this program and have generously provided an education edition of their work solely for use in schools. The works are supplied on DVD and are packaged together with support materials that provide information on the artists, their works and the context of video art making. Student activities are also included, providing avenues for participation and creative engagement.
This project has been produced in partnership with the New South Wales Department of Education and has received enthusiastic support from many other state education departments and professional bodies across the country. Provided free of charge to public secondary schools, the resource is now present in over 1800 schools and will be Australia-wide in 2011.
For over 40 years Kaldor Public Art Projects has created groundbreaking projects with international artists in public spaces, changing the landscape of contemporary art in Australia with projects that resonate around the world.
