Art education and outreach at the nGbK

The nGbK deals intensively with concepts of art education and outreach. Particularly since the end of the 1990s, the focus has not only been on the content of individual works or exhibitions, but also on the formats of mediation. Experimental approaches are used artistically to work with different target groups and publics as well as in different media formats. Rather than seeing itself merely as part of an institutional education program, outreach practices are seen critical and independent instruments in their design as well as implementation. Their intent is to create non-discriminatory spaces in which joint learning and unlearning is possible. Different media and artistic formats are used to open up new approaches to socio-political issues.

Exhibitions are accompanied by formats such as guided tours, lectures and workshops which are largely organized and carried out by the respective work groups. A focus group on outreach and education (the „AK Vermittlung“), which is open to new members, deals with the development and future of art education at the nGbK. The topic of different mediation strategies is also constantly being negotiated in the area of publications, on the website and in the area of wall texts, leaflets or brochures.

Accessibility for different social groups is a central concern. With this in mind, more and more guided tours of the current exhibitions are being held in easy language, German sign language (DGS), in various foreign languages or especially for children and young people. The aim of the association is to continuously expand this offer.

Outreach Scholarship

The outreach scholarship was offered annually by the nGbK from 2010 to 2023. The call for applications was aimed at individuals or teams of a maximum of two people who were active in the field of art and cultural outreach as well as in educational work and who wanted to implement experimental and processual methods and formats of artistic outreach. The institutional affiliation with the nGbK offered the fellows the opportunity to implement an outreach format in which their own practice could be tried out, varied or, if necessary, realigned.

Former fellows: Monika Jas, Catriona Shaw, Birgit Auf der Lauer and Anja Bodanowitz, Kristina Leko, Branka Pavlovic, Yvonne Reiners, Stefanie Wiens, Anna Bromley, Paula-Marie Kanefendt, Harley Aussoleil and Frances Breden, Melanie Erzuah, Jelena Fužinato, Isabel Kwarteng-Acheampong & Auro Orso
