Art Agents – An interactive guided tour developed by young adults for the exhibition by Nick Mauss

A special, interactive guided tour under the title Join the Party developed by students of the Gymnasium Bäumlihof through the exhibition Bizarre Silks, Private Imaginings and Narrative Facts, etc. by Nick Mauss.

In the project Art Agents, school classes from the Basel region create their own guided tour through the current exhibitions in dialogue with the artists. Visitors will learn from the perspective of the “art agents” how artists work and about the process of making an exhibition.

This integrative approach to mediation is based on giving participants the opportunity to acquire new knowledge, to consider what it has to do with themselves, and to pass on these experiences independently to interested parties. The guided tours in turn aim to give the public direct, personal, and immediate access to contemporary art.
