KW Institute for Contemporary Art’s educational and mediation program tests together with artists and different communities new spatial, thematic, and political constellations, that investigate KW in its function as a public institution and react to the current exhibition program and its concept with flexible feedback processes. Since 2013, KW works closely with artist and art mediator Mona Jas. Jas initiated and conceived the Lab for Art Education, testing different formats of mediation that include workshops, seminars, ongoing projects, and events. Mona Jas is regularly involved during the development of the exhibition program and is therefore able to take up and expand topics and ideas in advance. 


The Lab for Art Education cooperates with the Heinz-Brandt-Schule, the Alfred-Nobel-Schule, the Jugendkunstschule Pankow, the Berlin Weissensee School of Art, the ASB emergency shelter in Berlin-Moabit as part of Berlin Mondiale as well as with a7.außenseinsatz. Within the project Verknüpfungen, new cooperations with ifa-Galerie, the Bauhaus Denkmal Bundesschule Bernau bei Berlin e.V., and Bernau emergency shelters are being introduced in this hub.
