Education and Art Mediation
KW Institute for Contemporary Art’s education and art mediation program takes up themes and questions from the institution’s wide-ranging artistic exhibition and event program and develops them further together with visitors, trying to expand in its own formats on themes sparked within the program.
This approach is applied in workshops, guided tours, and long-term cooperations with multiple groups. We work with high schools, universities, artists, art mediators, researchers and different communities from Berlin in various formats throughout the year.

Who or what are KW? Just a random old building? A (dream) factory? How do the artworks get into the exhibition? Which themes and perspectives are being negotiated? What is missing? These and other questions will be taken up in the changing workshop program for visitors and deepened in artistic-educational settings. Further information is available here
Through its projects, the KW’s education and mediation program aims to create spaces in which different perspectives meet for critical exchange. What do I see, hear, or experience in the exhibition? What remains hidden? The exhibited artists, their works, as well as the space in which they are shown, offer a starting point for a dialogue with one’s own and with collective experiences, observations, expectations and perspectives, using artistic-experimental and educative methods.

Long-term education and mediation projects are developed and realized together with our respective partners. These cooperations aim to build a mutual space for action that appreciates and activates diverse bodies of knowledge and experience and facilitates both collective and individual approaches to different themes and questions related to the artistic program.
