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? And what could a (radically) democratic institution look like?
The upcoming Set #7: Outreach (beginning September 25, 2019) now wants to ask how museums and the local public can work together. Can a committed museum, mediation and exhibition practice initiate social changes? And what happens to the institution when it opens to community-oriented ways of working? In three lecture evenings and a workshop for teachers, artists, art mediators and curators, the event series illuminates and discusses Outreach from different perspectives.
