In addition to offering the possibility to university students to work closely with artists through the activation of workshops, the Educational Department supports and works with the activities that the Fondazione Merz implements for the exhibitions promoted nationally and internationally. Cultural exchange and participation are encouraged through the realisation of site-specific actions in collaboration especially with these educational institutions and with those artists most interested in broadening their practice to include the themes of relationship, sharing of experiences and meeting.
Examples of these activities include:
.2019 – Hangar Bicocca di Milano on the occasion of Igloos curated by Vicente Todolì
.2018 – Runik, Kosovo on the occasion of Si Ocarina and Runikut by Petriti Halilaj
.2017 – Beit Beirut, Beirut, Libano on the occasion of ‘Healing Lebanon’ by Zena El Khalil
.2016 – Macro of Roma on the occasion of the Marisa e Mario Merz exhibition curated by Claudio Crescentini, Costantino D’Orazio and Federica Pirani
