Art Education

Art Education ― alive and diverse

We want to rouse interest and generate excitement for contemporary art in children, teenagers, adults, and families! For this exact purpose, the art education department of the Kunstpalais offers a diversified accompanying program for each of our exhibitions—depending on the occasion, exhibition, and content of the art. 
Our extensive program includes guided tours, art talks, practical workshops, lectures, artists’ workshops, movie nights, and activities for all visitors from age 0 to 100. Targeted programs, interactive and open structures allow for a diverse approach to art and adjustments to the individual’s needs.
For educational institutions like schools, kindergartens, day care centers, and study groups the educational department of the Kunstpalais develops guided tours and workshops for each exhibition that are coordinated with the individual syllabus. This way the contact between contemporary art and school is facilitated.
Do you have any suggestions or specific ideas for your own projects at Kunstpalais? We are looking forward to hearing your ideas and wishes.  
Gladly we will introduce you to our different programs and we are looking forward to hearing your questions and seeing you registrations! In our event calendar, you can check when an event will take place.

Guided Tours

The Kunstpalais offers guided tours for children, teenagers, and adults. Content and aim of our guided tours are tailored to the participantsʼ needs. In an open dialogue with the visitors, our professional art mediators touch upon the artworks, their meaning, and conception, as well as the artists and their techniques. We offer new perspectives, fascinating insights, and one or two aha-moments. Below you can find information about our wide-ranging program of guided tours.

Public Tours
Every Sunday at 4 oʼclock our public tour takes place. There you can find out more about contemporary art and artists. For 60 minutes and together with our museum educators you will dive into the exhibition and ask your own questions. Exciting information about the conception, the artworks and their meaning give a deeper insight into the exhibition.

Foreign Language Guided Tours
On changing dates during the exhibition period we offer foreign language guided tours. Our art mediators regularly offer our visitors tours through the exhibition in English, French, Italian, and Arabic. We consistently work to expand on our foreign language program.

Curatorial Tours
During our curatorial tours, you have the special opportunity to talk to our curator about the exhibition. Here you can gain a personal insight into the selection and installation of the artworks, into the conception of the exhibition, and especially on the enthusiasm for the artist. Curatorial tours take place at the beginning and at the end of the exhibition period.

For all tours the following holds true:
Length: 60 minutes
Participation fee: 2€ plus admission fee
