"OPEN FELDENKRAIS LESSON"

Specials July 1, 2021 06:00 pm

Traditional Feldenkrais lessons, each offering an introduction to the Feldenkrais Method and the exhibition, held by Dorothée Rüttimann at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.

The open lessons are designed for those without Feldenkrais experience who would like to learn more about Feldenkrais and his relationship to the exhibition, and to try out the method for themselves. Those with Feldenkrais experience are also welcome to attend.

For the exhibition One Is Always a Plural, artist Yael Davids has selected art from the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst’s collection to bring into dialogue with her own works. The foundational ideas of the Feldenkrais Method play a key role in the design of the exhibition and selection of works.

The method developed by Moshé Feldenkrais is a body-oriented, therapeutic, and pedagogical practice in which specific movement sequences are carefully performed in order to help participants recognize their own movement habits and, in doing so, their ability to create a change. This allows users of this method to find and internalize alternatives to that which has become habitual or entrenched. The objective is not to perfect a certain "type" of movement, but to work with the possibilities of our own bodies and improve our functional movements – such as standing, sitting, bending and grasping.

Over the course of the exhibition, the audience is cordially encouraged to actively participate in classes, led by professional Feldenkrais teachers. Participants will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition before and after the lessons.
