Students from Year 7 have been set the creative brief to make a Zine which will be distributed in the AE newspaper and displayed on The Courtauld’s website and blog. This will be on the theme
of gender and explore the research question:Hidden from History? Discuss women’s role in The Courtauld Gallery and beyond. We hosted Dr Katie Faulkner a visiting lecturer from the Courtauld Institute who guided us through our initial questions and we planned lots of practical workshops to visually explore the complex ideas relating gender to objectification and institutions.
Through this project the students will expand their knowledge of art history and The Courtauld collection.
