Since the lockdown, the conditions for cooperation have changed radically. How do the closures and limited access to art institutions in times of the Corona pandemic affect the practice? How do freelance art mediators keep their heads above water in recent months? How does art mediation deal with “rethinking everything” with scarce resources? Under what conditions can art education continue to be a contact zone and remain a space for discussion and personal exchange? How do we encounter each other when visitors can no longer participate fully and physical distance is the order of the day? And: does this state of emergency conceal 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: Nanna Lüth, 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.
