The art education department invites you to actively experience the exhibitions in the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum and in Haus Lange and Haus Esters: sensually, creatively, critically and dedicatedly.

The offerings available from the art education department are especially targeted to all visitors: families, children, adolescents, adults and people with disabilities. You are welcome to observe art, to consider and talk about art and even to work artistically yourself.

Visit the rooms of the art education department on the ground floor of the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, take active part in weekend workshops, at guided tours for families, at KunstImPuls events or at our various holiday offerings.

Studio 2

Studio 2 is an interactive platform at the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, whose projects alternate with the exhibitions.

From 08.10.2021

Passend zur Ausstellung Beuys & Duchamp. Künstler der Zukunft wurde in der ersten Etage des Kaiser Wilhelm Museums, im sogenannten Studio 2, ein BeuysLabor eingerichtet, in dem die Schülerinnen in Kleingruppen aktiv die Eigenschaften und Transformationsmöglichkeiten unterschiedlicher Materialien untersuchen können. In der zentralen, rundum benutzbaren Forscherstation werden die Schülerinnen selbst zu Künstler-Wissenschaftlern; sie befassen sich mit Energie- und Wärmebegriffen, experimentieren mit der Stofflichkeit und Klanglichkeit von Materialien. Darüber hinaus ist der Raum ein Kommunikationsstudio, von dem aus via Videokonferenz Themen zwischen Kunst, Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft online mit Schulklassen diskutiert werden können
