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.

open event“Thrown off track?”
Maybe you have experienced it yourself: what you thought you saw is not what it is at all. For example, when you are sitting in a stationary train and another train passes by, you often think you are moving, although it is completely different. Our heads play one or two tricks on us almost every day, which often confuse us a lot. The artist Anna-Maria Bogner also wants to confuse us with her work of art by stretching long, black rubber bands in a room in the Kunsthaus so that it appears com...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen27 November 15:00 to 17:00
open event“Drawing, Chance, Spaces in Between”
ART AFTER WORK
Always moving from light to dark, Frank Neubauer develops large-scale images in his graphite drawings directly on the walls of the Kunsthaus, which are laid out from the outset across their entire format. With a great deal of patience, both extremely light, bright and dark to deep black surfaces are created, depending on the intensity of the application. The motif of the window - a motif of transition - is always in the foreground as a threshold or interface from inside to outside, giving h...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen1 December 17:30 to 20:00
open event“An Opening Space”
Research into the nature of space, how a space is constituted, is the focus of Anna-Maria Bogner's artistic exploration. In her investigations, the simple line is always to be seen as the starting point with regard to deconstructions, as the beginning of expression. Bogner's installation poses questions about space and spatiality and offers us an imaginative as well as highly physical experience of space. Depending on the perspective we adopt, this intervention ensures that we experience a spac...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen4 December 11:00 to 13:00
open event“THE WALLS” / “Rotis”
ENGLISH GUIDED TOUR
In the current group exhibition "THE WALLS", curated by Ute Eskildsen, the wall and the space are not only a means to an end, but are the direct focus of the artistic debate. The starting point and connecting link for all three participating artists is the questioning of one's own individual perception and visual habits, the offer of a recalibration of the senses as well as the challenge for the visitors to engage with new perspectives and points of view with regard to space and time. Durin...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen4 December 15:00 to 16:00
open event“Between black and white is … ?”
All artist Frank Neubauer needs for his large drawings on the walls of the Kunsthaus is a single pencil. If this sounds boring to you, you've got it all wrong! With his graphite pencil, he conjures up countless different shades of colour on the walls and creates drawings that make you think there is something else mysterious going on behind them. It is not only the transition from black to white and from light to dark that challenges our eyes: What do we see in these drawings? What do they remi...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen10 December 11:00 to 13:00

open event“Drawing with Graphite”
Graphite is a common mineral that leaves interesting traces on paper through abrasion. Frank Neubauer's non-representational and reduced drawings with this material, created weeks before directly on the walls of the Kunsthaus, celebrate transitions from light to dark. In doing so, they develop a narrative power and from time to time affect us like short disturbing images or a cinematic motif, as a battle of light and shadow. In the workshop we will experiment with many different paper groun...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen18 December 11:00 to 13:00
open event“Of Perception and Illusion”
ART AFTER WORK
"Photographic illusions do not deceive us - they play with our perception". With this statement by the artist Daniela Friebel, who lives and works in Berlin, you can expect new insights today into her exploration of (photographic) trompe-l'œil - a technique with a long tradition that simulates three-dimensionality by means of perspective. Her work with wall-covering photo wallpapers aims to play with different parameters of perception and to explore the boundaries of images by covering a pi...Kunsthaus Göttingen, Düstere Straße 7, 37073 Göttingen5 January 17:30 to 20:00
