Inclusive Education

MMK MIT ALLEN SINNEN

The guided tour MMK mit allen Sinnen with Fabian Korner, cultural scientist and inclusion activist, examines the non-visual moments in the exhibition Elizabeth Catlett in the TOWERMMK. Which aspects of a work are opened up through approaches such as hearing, smelling and touching? What do we learn about an exhibition and the museum as a place? With words from speeches, poems or novels, through the haptic experience of selected sculptures made of bronze and wood as well as through pictorial descriptions, we approach her work, her handling of materials and come to questions of representation and resistance. Fabian Korner will explore these questions together with Katharina Mantel, art mediator, and the participants.

TACTILE MODELS AND MULTISENSORY OFFERINGS

The MMK has been developing tactile models of artworks for the current exhibitions since 2022. These open up haptic access to selected artworks for visually impaired and blind people, thus broadening participation.

Especially for the exhibition, the artist Rosemarie Trockel developed a ceramic object called Pierre de Touch, which can be experienced and felt during the public guided tour MMK beschreibt. In addition, for the Rosemarie Trockel exhibition, freelance artist Simon Gilmer, in collaboration with the Art Education department, created a tactile model for the Ceramic Challenge of 2021.

The white ceramic sculpture consists of a square base from which four smaller, also square elements have been cut out. In the circular center of these are elements in the shape of fans, which stand out from the background due to their darker shading. (Alternative text)

Based on these initial experiences, new ways of multisensory and barrier-free art education will be further developed from 2023 together with Fabian Korner from the perspective of a blind person.

ACCOMPANYING BOOKLET IN PLAIN LANGUAGE

Since 2020, the MMK, together with Marlene Seifert of Schriftgut - Text und Konzeption and after review by Mensch zuerst - Netzwerk People First Deutschland e.V., has published all exhibition booklets in plain language. The booklet in plain language is available free of charge at the cashier desk and on the website under the menu item Exhibitions as a PDF download. It serves as a central mediation medium for visitors and enables further access to the content of artworks and exhibitions. This opens up new ways of barrier-free access to the topics, contexts and questions of the exhibitions in an independent way. The booklet in plain language as well as the inclusive guided tour formats offered by the MMK lead to more cultural participation.

ELIF - EINFACH LERNEN IN FRANKFURT

Since 2021, the MMK has been working with Lebenshilfe Frankfurt e.V. to develop inclusive guided tours of the exhibitions in the TOWERMMKand the MUSEUMMMK. In the first two years, guided tours took place in Sammlung, Marcel Duchamp, Rosemarie Trockel and Channeling. This collaboration contributes significantly to the sensitization and further development of inclusive art education programs.

The contacts established in the project and the teamwork will be continued and maintained in the MMK after the end of the project.
