Programme & Education

Educational offers and events at Kunsthaus Göttingen are aimed at a diverse audience and have visitors of all ages, needs and interests in mind. The formats make it possible to engage with and actively experience contemporary art in a variety of ways. The aim is to create an open space for individual interpretations and to foster encounters and creative exchange among participants. Together with in-house and freelance art educators, we offer a broad and, wherever possible, barrier-free programme for all visitors in parallel to each exhibition. This includes, among other things, exhibition tours and special formats, workshops for all age groups and special educational formats for schools. Regardless of prior knowledge, Kunsthaus Göttingen advocates a process of lifelong learning and aims to stimulate independent reflection on the contemporary art on display.
