It's contemporary!

It is a special responsibility of art mediation to introduce young people to contemporary art and culture. For some youths, a visit at Q21 can be their first contact.

We enter the exhibition area. After a short introduction to the subject, the tour takes the students to selected works. We try to discuss the works of art on display together. It’s not an expert opinion that counts, but observation and an exchange of impressions.

Maybe somebody would like to ask a question which raises new questions and leads to closer inspection: What do I see? Which feelings and associations does the artwork evoke? Together we try to give meaning to the different observations. There is not just one way of interpreting a piece of art, but as many as there are observers.

During a guided tour around Q21 we do not only encounter contemporary art but also the artists behind it. International artists-in-residence (some of them talk to us in English) introduce themselves and their art. We learn about other countries and perspectives and get to know the great variety of artistic expression – and there is always time to start a conversation with the artists.

The Q21 institutions’ topics and activities can be new to younger audiences. But often they revolve around things which influence the lives of young people, for instance the question of data privacy in the digital age, or independent computer game development. Together we explore the fields of work and creativity of the 21st century.

School groups from the Austrian federal states can book tours with the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.

We are happy to arrange individual tours focusing on a specific subject – for instance in cooperation with other institutions of the MuseumsQuartier Wien.
