The Jeu de Paume museum in Paris will be hosting an exhibition of Depression-era photographer Dorothea Lange’s work from 16 October to 27 January. (Or catch it at the Barbican in London this summer.) It’s a wonderful subject for class work, and we’ll be publishing a Ready to Use Resource and a competition for pupils in September. Meantime, you can sign up for a special free teacher’s day visit on 6 November. And the Mona Bismarck Center will be offering class visits in English to the exhibition.
You can sign up for the guided visit for teachers at the Jeu de Paume on 6 November at 6.30 p.m.
A teaching pack for the exhibition will be available in August. This trailer gives a taster of the exhibition.
Class Visits in English
The Mona Bismarck American Center will be providing guided visits for classes in English as part of its “Look and Learn” programme. The guide is English-speaking and can adapt the visit for different levels of class. The visits are all on Wednesday mornings: 14 November, 5 and 19 December, 16 and 23 January. For more information, or to reserve, contact the educational programme by e-mail.
If you happen to be in London this summer, the same exhibition, Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, is on at the Barbican till 2 September. There’s an interesting photo essay about it on the Barbican site.
