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.
Families and Children
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.
Digital and Multimedia
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.
