2nd-12th year and A-levels
Here you will find descriptions of instructional programmes for 1-hour and 2-hour sessions for the second to tenth classes, secondary schools and teachers’ colleges.
Louisiana Learning is for all young guests at Louisiana visiting the museum with their school. A wide range of Louisiana-led sessions are offered. Each session is based on a theme linked to Louisiana’s current exhibitions, its collection or the museum architecture. Teacher's packs in Danish including a power point can be downloaded for free to prepare the visit.
Louisiana Learning is about exploring art together through looking, dialogue and experiments. Enjoy a creative workshop as part of a 2 hours session which allow your pupils/students to get their hands on the techniques and materials themselves. In all the learning programmes our overall aim is to encourage the development of creative, analytical and critical skills.
CURRENT & FIXED SESSIONS
22.8.2019 - 8.3.2020
Experience an incomparable document of decades of unbridled consumer culture in a world increasingly obsessed with the dream of looking both beautiful and rich.
The American photographer Lauren Greenfield (b. 1966) grew up in the white American middleclass. With the photographic series Generation Wealth, Greenfield takes an eye-opening look at the consumer culture that changed the values of the middle class adding naked materialism, a cult of celebrity and undisguised narcissism. Generation Wealth takes us along as witnesses to the rampages of financial flows around the world – from Iceland, Dubai and Ireland to Russia and the USA. In images and interviews, Greenfield documents with her own words “how body culture, youth, sexuality and the trappings of wealth have become the true social currency”. Greenfield not only documents the winners, but also those who succumb to the competitive spirit of the time.
We offer 1 and 2-hour museum-led sessions in the exhibition. The sessions are based on dialogue and will include sense-based activities.
Please note that the exhibition contains images that may occur disturbing.
18.10.2019 - 5.4.2020
Experience the Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao (b. 1972) who creates architecture that relates to traditional Mexican culture, landscapes and building traditions, and the social conditions in the cities of Mexico.
The third exhibition in the series The Architect’s Studio presents a look into the architectural machinery, where we meet the Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao (b. 1972). Her diverse work includes a pilgrimage route in Mexico, the Botanical Garden in Culiacán and housing units. The landscape plays a central role in her work ranging from the majestic Mexican countryside to urban scenery and the internal landscape of the individual building. Bilbao also addresses the social conditions in the cities of Mexico. In Mexico City where crime rates are high, Bilbao has created a light path that makes it possible to walk safely through remote parts of the city.
Learning sessions are tailored to each age group and take place at the exhibition combining dialogue, sketching and process writing. In the 2-hour session, the second half will take place in our workshop space, where the students will work creatively inspired by the exhibition.
LOOK FORWARD TO
ANN VERONICA JANSSENS
HOT PINK TURQUOISE
23.1.2020 - 17.5.2020
This exhibition will introduce the work of Ann Veronica Janssens (b. 1956) for the first time in Denmark. The artist plays and experiments with light effects, mists, colour trails and optical illusions - as a ground for engineering thoughts and feelings in the viewer.
Like a scientist, Ann Veronica Janssens pursues and pushes the boundaries of the known with light as her main material. Whether solid, liquid or gaseous Janssens uses light in all its forms “to show the manifestations of reality in a different way”. With no intention of confirming what we already know, she aims to locate us precisely at the spot where we open ourselves up again.
With inspiration from the Californian Light and Space artists of the 1960s, it has for Janssens always been about conveying an experience of art by simultaneously stimulating the eyes, body and consciousness.

We offer 1 and 2-hour museum-led sessions in the exhibition. The sessions are based on dialogue and will include sense-based activities. In the 2-hour session, the students will work creatively inspired by the exhibition.
LOOK FORWARD TO
PER KIRKEBY - BRONZE
20.2.2020 - 21.6.2020
The exhibition in spring 2020 is the first ever comprehensive presentation of Per Kirkeby’s (1938-2018) bronze sculptures. The exhibition takes a close look at the danish artist’s sculptures and the artist’s work with figure and space that also occupied his paintings in the early 1980s.
A majority of Kirkeby’s sculptures will be presented, sometimes in interaction with individual paintings and drawings, while spotlighting his personal affinities with old masters – Rodin and Giacometti.
Per Kirkeby is a key artist in Louisiana’s collection, which features works from his earliest beginnings to the very last years of his life. One of Kirkeby’s bronze sculptures, Tor II (Port II), 1987, has its permanent placement in the sculpture park of the Louisiana. And occasionally, a selection of the artist’s paintings is exhibited at the old villa. The exhibition is curated by Louisiana’s director, Poul Erik Tøjner, who has written several books on and with the Danish artist.
We offer 1 and 2-hour museum-led sessions in the exhibition. The sessions are based on dialogue and sketch drawings, where we will explore Kirkeby’s port motifs. In the 2-hour session, the students will work creatively inspired by the exhibition.
