Texts, painting and keys...
On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, groups of students will be asked to find other texts and works of visual arts illustrating madness in Shakespeare (with the help of their teacher). They will put up an exhibition associating texts and artworks with commentaries about how artists use, express or change insanity's function in paintings, drawings or photographs derived from Shakespearean scenes.
