The Kunsthaus Baselland strives to facilitate meaningful collaborations with pedagogical institutions (schools of all levels, technical colleges, colleges of education, universities etc.) and offers a broad programme for teachers and students. Multifaceted, engaging subjects are dealt with through tours, workshops, research days, project weeks or CPD activities for teachers. Teachers can gain inputs from us for their own teaching. They gain an understanding of methods of mediation which can be used — depending on the exhibition or project — in both the taught art context and in subjects beyond art. The Kunsthaus Baselland can be understood as a complementary teaching space alongside the classroom where preparation and subsequent processing take place. Art is understood and absorbed as a catalyst for everyone’s own creativity through practical workshops which can be organised in combination with all exhibition programmes. Our mediation formats are suitable for all school levels and subjects. The price is defined according to the offer and particular requirements. Special conditions apply for city and cantonal schools.

For Teachers

An Introduction to the Exhibition

At the start of every exhibition we invite teachers to a free tour so they can get to know the exhibiting artists’ focuses, their work and related topics. We demonstrate how these topics and lines of enquiry can fruitfully be integrated in teaching.

We look forward to your registration!

Expressing one's own perception is not always easy.

They first look at the works individually and in small groups, and then discuss their impressions in a joint tour of the exhibition.

Cost: 145 CHF
Suitable for primary schools, secondary level I and II, vocational classes, teacher training.

Current Workshop Programme

Read the article "Mediation should take place in the midst of art", published in the Basler Schulblatt (26.6.2023) here.


The new Kunsthaus Baselland was documented by the artist Renate Buser during its long development process. Her work moves between staged photography and art in architecture. Together we will embark on a journey of discovery through the exhibition by taking photos with our cell phones, both in the Kunsthaus and in its surroundings. At the end, we will look at the photos together and have the opportunity to print out our own shots to take home with us.

Suitable for secondary level l and ll.

Duration: 90 min.
Cost: 160 CHF
