Engaging with Art

The main purpose of art education is to encourage vistors to actively engage with art. By providing supplementary information on works and periods of art history, we seek to promote a better understanding of artists' multifaceted activities. We offer a space for individuals to deepen their contemplation of art and share their impressions and thoughts with others. A particular objective of art education at the Fondation Beyeler is to enable people of different ages and backgrounds to explore the practice of art as well as its content.
