Kunstagenten – Guided tours developed by youths

Kunsthalle Basel invites young people to become Kunstagenten by sharing contemporary art with their peers. School classes from the Basel region work in dialogue with our exhibiting artists to develop their own guided tours of the current exhibitions. Visitors discover, from the perspective of these Kunstagenten, how the artists work and how their exhibitions took shape.

This integrative approach to art education is based on the principle of offering children and young people the opportunity to generate new knowledge, and then pass it on to others in their own way. The aim is to enable direct, age-appropriate access to contemporary art.

If you are an educator and interested in taking part in one of the following projects with your class, please contact our Art Education team.
