Kampouropoulou Maria, Kakissi Luiza, Efstathiou Ioanna


The goal of this study is to investigate the role of an Art Museum Exhibition to Literature as; they can both convert into an experiential teaching, multisensory experience, and a “meeting place” for the viewer. The project involved 160 students studying in the Department of Primary Education of the University of the Aegean (first and fourth year of training), during the winter semester of 2013. Also the study seeks to demonstrate the great importance of the cooperation between the Universities of the Aegean and the National University of Athens in Arts. Many forms of cooperation, as scientific and educational between Greek Academic Institutions are relevant and complementary, in a spirit of reciprocity, integrated interdisciplinary approach and collective work. At the end of the project, students were asked, to one of the works they had to carry out, to connect ten paintings they were given in card postal with a literary text, prose or poem. Students managed to discover numerous literary works containing common symbols with the paintings and also common elements between Art works and Literature. (Kokkinos & Alexakis, 2002).
