Communicating with art

Guided tours at the Fondation Beyeler aim to make art accessible in a variety of ways and to explore the unknown and gain new perspectives. In addition to general and thematic tours, we offer a focus on individual artworks, architectural tours, tours for families, for the aurally or visually handicapped, and for foreign-language speakers. We also regularly invite visitors to art breakfasts, tours with curators, and to the “24-stops” tour along the Rehberger-Weg.

The tours provide in-depth glimpses into the exhibitions and collection. They are intended to convey background information about the works and artists, but they also encourage you to see actively and to reflect on what has been seen and experienced. Art is not only interesting and beautiful, but can also be stirring, irritating, vivid, innovative, frightening, or even melancholic. It is an outlet for feelings, criticism, attitudes to life, and can stimulate thought and discussion.
