Children and Youth

Together we will explore if contemporary art has something to do with you?

How does my perspective change when I lie on the museum floor? Who is speaking here? Who am I in the museum? Does the museum belong to me?

Our exhibitions and education formats let us observe, speak, and think. They give you space for yourself and your thoughts and questions, surrounded by art. Create and develop other skills with us!

Which places, people and things make us feel at home? What do the people in the pictures tell us? Why are there so many suitcases here? We approach the group exhibition at the MMK with all our senses. We see colourful fabrics, smell old leather and hear different languages.

MMK KUNST-ABITUR-KURS, digital

FOR STUDENTS OF THIS YEAR'S A-LEVEL CLASS

You are studying for your oral art A-level exam and have questions, need practice or want to expand your skills and test them in advance? You don't want to study alone, but together with others? In this three-day online intensive course you will review, question and discuss together with other students.

With the help of presentations, discussions, exercises and sample exams, high school graduates, accompanied by two MMK staff members, prepare for the oral A-level exams in terms of content and methodology.

Together, they develop, try out and consolidate ways of viewing and discussing art. In doing so, we follow the curricular guidelines for painting, photography and architecture and select works from the collection as representative examples. The offer can explicitly not replace individual school preparation, but is an additional opportunity to expand one's knowledge through learning in a group.

The MMK KUNST-ABITUR-KURS takes place once a year, shortly before the oral A-level exams.
