What is it about?
Artist Eva Koťátková’s work in ARS22 in an exploration of empathy and interspecies relations. Lesson in Empathy is a 45-minute workshop conducted in the same gallery as Koťátková’s work. It is designed to evoke empathy with non-human organisms, and it includes a discussion around stories written by the artist. What does it feel like to be a fish on dry land? What can a bush be thinking when it is taken to the market? The stories covered in the workshop change every week.
A Lesson in Empathy is recommended for children over 12 years old. The workshop language is Finnish.
One workshop accommodates up to 15 people.
