General information on Kunsthalle Basel’s art mediation programs

Each exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel is accompanied by a program of educational events tailored to different interests and age groups and structured around the themes of the show. In addition to public and private guided tours for adults and children, we offer a wide range of projects designed to bring contemporary art closer to a young public. Based first and foremost on participation and discussion, these activities encourage individuals to develop their own direct and meaningful connections with works of art in the galleries.

In close cooperation with educators, schools, and universities, as well as other institutions and partners, we regularly run projects suitable for different stages of learning. These projects extend over several weeks and accompany the exhibition process. We have established a number of our own art-education formats and are always interested in new developments in the field.
Another major goal of our art mediation program is the integration of people with disabilities. We regularly design and run workshops that are tailored to their specific needs.

We welcome your inquiries and new ideas.
