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.
Tours offer an opportunity to gain further insights into special exhibitions and the museum's regular collection. They provide background information on artists and works, and facilitate dialogue and discussion.
A tour of the exhibition is followed by a visit to the studio, where participants can engage in practice with what they have seen and discussed.
Families and Children
Our special program of workshops, tours, and family days offer extraordinary art experiences to children and their parents.
These events and activities are all about you -– young people at the museum. Here you can share your ideas about art with others of your own age group, and take an active role in making art, as well as talking about it.
Guided visits for companies, tour groups, associations or private parties offer a chance to experience art in an exclusive setting and in a way that is guaranteed to spark conversation.
Group tours and workshops offer school and college students a range of opportunities to experience art and exchange ideas at the Fondation Beyeler.
Accessibility is a key priority at the Fondation Beyeler. The museum provides barrier-free access to all areas and specially designed learning resources for visitors with disabilities.
Digital and Multimedia
We provide digital learning materials to get creative at home. Our audio guides offer a special listening experience with background information on exhibitions.
Our programs of further training for educators and experts provide a range of opportunities to discuss questions concerning art and art education.
The accompanying materials to our exhibitions include gallery guides, activity books for children, and games, which are available in the museum and the Art Shop and can also be accessed online.
