Artist-led Workshop with Miren Doiz
The Artist-led Workshop, a collaborative project between artists and educators aimed at children aged between 8 and 11, and this year in its fifth edition, sets up a dialogue between the artistic career of Miren Doiz (Pamplona, 1980) and the works on display in the two temporary exhibitions from the Kunstmuseum Basel.
Artist Miren Doiz explore both exhibitions with participants, not only to highlight the historical importance of collecting as a staple in the holdings of public collections, but primarily to put forward an overview of painting from contemporary practice. Miren Doiz’s surroundings-based works, which intervene through expanded painting, trigger experiences that directly pose a question to the viewer through sentience. Her concept of painting transgresses the frameworks that encapsulate it and includes diverse techniques, which allow the children participating to discover, over the five days the workshop is held, how this can generate inhabitable spaces.
