Workshop for elementary schools
After a short insight into the current exhibition, we will start our own storytelling ritual. In the second part of the workshop, we will get creative in our workshop room and each of us will design an individual storytelling stone.
Workshop for secondary schools
In our current exhibition, the artists deal with the topic of colonization. The students will be asked for their spontaneous association with the term and then take a closer look at the artworks with us together. In the course of the workshop we will work out together in how far the consequences of the colonial era are still visible and in which various forms they show in our society today. In our research room are additional materials available for the students to use in order to delve deeper into the topic. The students use the texts, objects, and artworks of the exhibition to create a short audio report.

Workshop for Children and young people with visual impairments
Art is created through the smell of paint, wood or other materials, through the haptics of "feeling" surfaces and textures, through the sound of position, size and mass in space, the sound of the work of art, perhaps also by looking at it. We invite you to experience the artworks and explore materials together.
