The art education program at Kunsthaus Bregenz provides both a foundation and space for discourses around contemporary art.
We invite all visitors to become involved in the unfamiliar, contradictory, or even unpleasant, and to overcome any apprehensions.
Prior knowledge is less of a requirement for compelling confrontations with art than curiosity and courage.
We are readily available for dialogues, taking into account the individual needs and differing knowledge of the most diverse visitors, during such encounters.
