Real Life - Guy Ben-Ner and Ron Mueck


This course plan is a tool to help students to discover that art is a means of communication.


Guy Ben-Ner uses varied means of expression: drawing, installation and videos. He takes his inspiration for his work from his surroundings and his family members. Ron Mueck is well known for his hyper-realist sculptures, created in fibreglass. His characters, drawn from everyday life, represent universal themes: birth, aging, love and the passage of time.
