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.

Current Workshop Programme

Bienenparcours

Beehave Workshop

90 min

Die Biene ist uns besonders als honigspendende Bestäuberin bekannt, doch welche Rolle spielt sie in der Kunst? Dieser Frage geht die Ausstellung Beehave nach und stellt unterschiedliche zeitgenössische Positionen vor. Wir nehmen ihre Kindergartenkinder oder SchülerInnen mit auf eine Schatzsuche durch das Kunsthaus Baselland. Ausgerüstet mit einer Schatzkarte und Stiften lösen sie Rätsel zu den ausgestellten Werken und finden am Ende den Ort des gut versteckten, süssen Schatzes heraus.

Stufen: Kindergarten und Primarschule Kompetenzen: Natur Mensch Gesellschaft 2.6.1, Bildnerisches Gestalten 1.A.2, 3.A.1, 3.B.2 140 CHF Basel-Landschaft 240 CHF Basel-Stadt

Wachs durchleuchten

Beehave Workshop

90 min

In der Gruppenausstellung Beehave stellen KünstlerInnen der Gegenwart in ihren Werken die Honigbiene in den Mittelpunkt; sei es das Lebewesen selbst — mit einem äusserst komplexen Sozialverhalten — oder Honig und Bienenwachs als Produkte. Zusammen mit ihren SchülerInnen gießen wir Platten aus Bienenwachs, die während eines Rundgangs durch die Ausstellung erkalten. Zurück mit verschiedenen Eindrücken der Werke, dürfen die SchülerInnen Formen in das Wachs kratzen, die später mithilfe des Sonnenlichts fotografisch festgehalten werden. Als Abschluss ergeben die unterschiedlichen Fotos ausgedruckt und nebeneinander gehängt ein großes Muster.

Materialien: Bienenwachs, Holzrahmen, Fotopapier

Fleissige Bienchen

Beehave Workshop

90 min

Zu einem funktionierenden Bienenstaat gehören unzählige Individuen, die jeweils eine bestimmte Funktion erfüllen. Der Künstler Philip Wiegard hat in einem Workshop gemeinsam mit anderen KünstlerInnen die in der Ausstellung Beehavegezeigte Wandarbeit geschaffen, die uns als Vorbild für den praktischen Teil dient. Wiegard thematisiert darin das häufig mit den Bienen in Verbindung gebrachte Merkmal der kollaborativen Arbeit. Hier versammeln sich alle TeilnehmerInnen auf einer grossen Papierbahn und gestalten — jeder sitzendundvon sich ausgehend — ein Muster, das ineinander übergeht und sich an den Enden verweben soll.
