Experimental encounter with art

Workshops at the Fondation Beyeler begin with a guided tour of the exhibition in which the participants are invited to participate actively. Afterward, what was seen and experienced is explored in-depth, hands-on. Various art techniques and practices are used in a playful manner to better understand the artists and artistic movements and trends. No prior knowledge or artistic talent is necessary.

The workshops for children aged 6 to 10 years old emphasize experimentation with artistic techniques.

For anyone interested in experimental formats. The Youth Studio combines dialogue-based tours with workshop visits.
