The lockdown is over. Museums and exhibitions have reopened. What does this mean for art education? The conditions have changed radically, instead of working on art mediation concepts; one has to develop visitor guidance systems. But how can art education continue to be a contact zone and provide space for personal exchange and discussion? How do we meet when visitors can no longer participate fully and physical distance is the order of the day? Does this state of emergency conceal unexpected potential for art education that can convey something that does not yet exist?


Together with you and the founders of The Art Educator’s Talk LIVE, KW wants to reflect on the current situation, its possibilities and pitfalls in a digital exchange. On three dates, we offer the opportunity to discuss in small working groups with interested actors from the field, how art education–and thus also the institutions in which it takes place– can look like from the present situation in the future.


With: Duygu Örs, Katja Zeidler and additional guests
Moderation: Gila Kolb, Konstanze Schütze


The event is aimed at people interested in art education, its formats, fields of application and forms of organization. The Art Educator’s Talk is a trilingual blog and a series of live talks aimed at art educators and art mediators.


Para.Proto.Next–Questions on the Futures of Art Education was originally conceived as a series of events and network meetings at KW. Due to the temporary closure of the institution as well as the existing contact restrictions caused by the worldwide spread of the coronavirus, the event will take place online until further notice.
