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.


If you are interested in what we have to offer please phone (+41) 61 312 83 88 or email us. We will be delighted to take your booking and are of course available to answer your questions.

Our team is available to answer questions or take bookings from Tuesday–Friday from 9 am–5 pm.

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.

Current Workshop Programme

The Secret of Mark and Paper

Regionale 19 Workshop

90 min

In keeping with the exhibition Regionale 19 – Liquid Planet: Abstract Painting Today, in this workshop classes test the most fundamental methods of painting: the mark and the paper. The choice of these media is, however, unusual. There are no brushes and the paper is made from ground stone. It is waterproof and enables quite different approaches. At the centre of the workshop is the process of abstract visualisation and the joy of experimentation. With a tour of the exhibition pupils gain insight into the visual worlds and working processes of the artists exhibiting.

Level: Primary schools
Competencies: Bildnerisches Gestalten 1.A.2, 2.A.2, 2.B.1, 2.C.1, 3.B.1
