The discourse programme of lab.Bode invites the public to take part in regular evening events and workshops, in which current issues in the practice of museum education as well as research-based methods and perspectives are negotiated and discussed.
The five series of discussions that have taken place so far were dedicated to different topics in the field of art education: spaces, participation, dissent, vision, and dialogue.
How to design spaces for museum education? What participatory approaches are used in art museums? What is the role of art education in a changing society? What existing museum concepts entail future-oriented strategies for a stronger collaboration between the different responsibilities of a museum? And can a museum serve as a space for social discourse?
The current series of events is Set #6: Collaboration, which started on April 23, 2019 and addresses the vision of the museum as a (radically) democratic institution. What would such a museum look like? How could museum users and museum organisers work together above and beyond their traditional roles? How can the themes and content of education formats and exhibitions be developed in concert? Set #6: Collaboration starts with a workshop for teachers, artists, art educators, and curators, which is followed by three evenings of public discussion.
