Kunsthalle Mainz wants to provide an access to contemporary art for as many people as possible.

Therefore we offer inclusive public tours with object descriptions for the blind and visually impaired, with translation into German sign language and in Einfacher Sprache (easy language).

People with disabilities can take part in all public tours, events, courses and workshops. Seating is available during the tours. Step-free access to all works of art is given.

What happens in my head?

Workshop for schools

Jenna Sutela's work I Magma shows us glowing seething heads. They seem like an oracle that we are supposed to read. What happens in your head? After a discussion in front of the original artworks, we will create our own head pictures out of light in the workroom.

Cost: 5 euros

Philosophising in the Kunsthalle

Can you imagine being a bat? Where does your imagination end? How does knowledge come into being?

With all senses: picture descriptions


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.

Duration: 2 hours*
Costs: 5 euros*

Explore and discover with all senses

Guided tour inclusive!*

On this Guided tour, the facilitators take plenty of time to explore selected works of art together. A holistic, experiential encounter with the artworks is made possible. Together we see, feel, smell and hear the art in the exhibition. The facilitators speak in a simple and accessible language.

Duration: 1 hour
Cost: 3 euros
