The Education Centre offers its own unique courses, lectures and master-classes, covering all the areas of activity of the Museum and its Centres – the Avant Garde, Tolerance, Research and Children’s Centres.
The educational projects are inextricably linked with the main exposition work of the Museum, just as the artistic heritage of the Jewish people – its poets, writers, musicians, directors, artists and architects – are inseparable from the history of world art. The rich and multi-faceted programme of the Education Centre, taking in all the main spheres of knowledge in the social sciences and humanities, and its team of highly professional and distinguished lecturers all provide for the most well rounded supplementary education.
Besides its lecture courses, the Education Centre holds regular themed film showings, artistic meetings and discussions involving prominent representatives of the world of culture. The Avant Garde Centre’s library is always open to those wishing to use its resources. Its books and albums on the Soviet Avant Garde are available for perusal by all willing, independently of timetabled events.
To aid the public in making sense of this sea of publications, the library employs a consultant who, as well as being able to give professional answers to enquiries, also engages in enlightening the public on the fundamental landmarks of each of the artistic tendencies the materials cover. Education Centre events take place both in the library of the Centre of the Avant Garde and in the main exhibition area of the Museum.
