The Museum of Concrete project
Time and place
About the event
About the master-class:
Concrete as an art or a way of artistic expression has always been among the most accessible materials for the implementation of the author's ideas. Because it is incredibly plastic before - and at the same time very strong after-curing. These properties of the material allow you to create large-scale and amazing projects using a simple set of simple components, such as sand, cement and water. Among the masters who are passionate about studying the properties and capabilities of the material, there are quite a few who, thanks to their practical activities and constant experiments, create their own techniques and methods of working with concrete. Participants of the master class will be able not only get acquainted with one of these techniques, but also to become the creators of a grandiose art object that will be added to collection of Museum of Concrete and will become available for the wide public in 2021 when the exhibition is completed.
