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 six series of discussions that have taken place so far were dedicated to different topics in the field of art education: spaces, participation, dissent, vision, dialogue and collaboration.
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? Can a museum serve as a space for social discourse? What could a (radically) democratic institution look like? And how can museums and the local public can work together?
With Set #8: Diversity (beginning January 28, 2020), lab.Bode’s last series of events is dedicated to issues of diversity and racism-critical work in cultural institutions. You are cordially invited to three public lectures and two workshops for teachers, artists, art educators and curators to discuss with us how diversity can be institutionalized as a practice critical of discrimination and which impulses art education can provide to these questions.
