“Collecting and Curating Media Art”
Online panel discussion with Julia Stoschek, Han Nefkens and Daniel Birnbaum! Co-hosted with our partner Rolls Royce Muse.
The Fondation Beyeler's main goal is to bring art and spectator together. Through our guided tours and workshops, we do not only share knowledge about artists, works and epochs, we create above all a space in which to deepen observations and exchange different views, perceptions, thoughts and feelings. Our goal is to let stories and therefore connections develop between the artwork and the viewer and it's especially important to the Fondation Beyeler that children and young people also be able to find their very own stories and connections.
