OUR CITY – DRAMA PEDAGOGY WORKSHOP

Galeria Centralis, Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives (1051 Budapest, Arany János u. 32.)

In the workshop students will play the roles of the members of a children’s republic who have to solve a large scale conflict, first as a democratic, then as a dictatorial community. The only fixed elements in the play are character cards, and how the situation develops entirely depends on the participants. During the session, students will learn about the historical background of Gaudiopolis, can think together about and discuss what democracy and dictatorship is, and experience what it is like to be citizens, ministers, journalists or judges involved in making decisions for the entire community. Workshops are lead by Szabolcs Szirony and Anikó Kövecsi. (drama pedagogy advisor: Rodrigó Balogh)

Guided tour for students - Somewhere in Europe, Gaudiopolis

Galeria Centralis, Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives (1051 Budapest, Arany János u. 32.)

Gaudiopolis or the City of Joy was a children’s republic founded by Lutheran pastor Gábor Sztehlo in Budapest after WWII. Gaudiopolis was the home of several hundreds of severely traumatized orphaned and homeless children. The City of Joy not only gave them shelter but also the opportunity „to remove social barriers and become autonomous, self-confident adults, who strive for self-awareness and are capable of self-criticism, are skilled and educated”. Between 1945 and 1949, the period of highs hopes and grave disillusionment, it seemed possible to create a new, free and democratic world. The exhibition presents the history of Gaudiopolis and other similar projects launched by enthusiastic, courageous and persevering individuals and groups who believed in a better and more just society, and who wanted to renew the political and cultural life in the country, reform education and build a new country – somewhere in Europe.

Gaudiopolis workshop
We offer a wide range of art pedagogical programs so that every visitor can find a framework in which first-hand experience can be gained regarding how contemporary art contributes to a democratic society. Fundamental to the programs is the agency of the participator – rather a partner in or an equal to the artist in the work-process – as well as the notion of playing.
