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 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 their teaching.

Generations in the museum (GiM) is an opportunity for encounter and exchange, to explore your own imagination and, what is more, to follow the impulses and emotions stirred by looking at an artwork. In tandem, young and old start a conversation about how they look at a picture together. With free refreshments. GiM is a Migros Kulturprozent initiative.

Look More Closely!

8.30 am start possible on agreement
90 min.

Expressing one's own perception is not always easy. The pupils guide each other through the exhibition on the basis of individual impressions and thus approach the works on display in an unbiased way. They first look at the works individually and in small groups, and then discuss their impressions in a joint tour of the exhibition.

Costs: 100 CHF
Levels: Primary schools / secondary level I and II / vocational classes / teacher training

In a row

An exhibition usually consists of many different works of art, lots of ideas and a wealth of stories. Together we explore the works, discover the stories behind them and collect them on a colourful garland. The children can take this home with them at the end of the workshop.

Suitable for kindergarten and primary school.

Duration: 90 min.
Cost: 110 CHF

To book the workshop, please contact us here.


Impression – Expression

Sometimes it is not so easy to establish a personal connection to a work of art. What is the work trying to say? And how can it speak to me personally? Based on our own perceptions, we embark on a journey of discovery through the exhibition. We will exchange experiences and go on an open tour to inspire each other.

Suitable for secondary level l and ll.

Duration: 90 min.
Cost: 110 CHF
