The discovery of contemporary artworks allows one to approach, through the lens of art, the major issues of our contemporary societies. The resources on our site can help you in the construction of your classes or in the creation of art education projects, regardless of the age of the students, from kindergarten to university.

- References page : In the artists’ files, each artist is invited to share references to their work and views of their workspace. (Note: Not all of the artists have already completed their page.)
- Filmed portraits of artists : DDA Bretagne produces video portraits in which, in the studio or elsewhere, an artist presents his works and his way of working. These portraits make it possible to access “without filter” the artist’s words and approach to their work, as well as the modes of production of their works.
