Lunds konsthall wishes its visitors to feel welcome, be engaged and become curious. All activities are devised with the interested public in mind. Through mediation offers and proactive solicitating, new groups of visitors are encouraged to enter into contact with contemporary art. The aim of all pedagogical work at Lunds konsthall is to support innovation and implement the results of current research as an integrated part of the mediation activities.
For specific mediation activities different methods are used: public guided tours, workshops, printed publications and filmed interviews. Lunds konsthall’s exhibition hosts offer visitors personal guidance. Free-distribution catalogues with texts in Swedish and English provide further insight into the exhibitions.
Free public guided tours are offered to all visitors on Thursdays and Sundays at 3pm. These longer tours last around an hour.
Shorter lunchtime tours are offered from Tuesday to Friday at 12:15–12:30.
Groups of children and youngsters from activities organised within the Municipality of Lund are offered free tours. These tours are adapted to each specific group and last around one hour.
Classes from municipal schools wishing to visit Lunds konsthall independently are offered mediation cards with questions. These cards are pedagogical tools providing points of entry and opening perspectives for encountering art.
Free specially interpreted tours for groups of visitors with impaired vision or hearing can be booked by contacting Lunds konsthall’s pedagogues at sufficient notice.
Lunds konsthall’s workshops target young visitors between the ages of 13 and 18. They are based on democratic attitudes and working methods, giving all participants equal space and making use of everyone’s competencies. The workshops depart from the current exhibition, with the intention to facilitate reflection on and analysis of the topics and issues addressed by the exhibiting artists.
Children between the ages of 5 and 13 may encounter art by using the self-organised creative workshop. Lunds konsthall provides visual tasks connected with the current exhibition. At special occasions artist-led workshops for children are also organised.
The Culture Guarantee is a municipal programme inviting every child in pre-school or school in Lund to participate in a professionally organised cultural experience. Lunds konsthall offer workshops for eighth-graders, specially created for one exhibition period each year.
For each exhibition or other project, filmed interviews are made with the artists or the curator. These are shown adjacent to the exhibition space and function as a complement to the art. They are also available on YouTube, as part of a record of activities at Lunds konsthall in recent years: interviews, performances and other events.
In connection with Lunds konsthall’s longer opening hours on Thursday evenings, lectures, conversations and discussions are often organised to illuminate topics and issues relating to the current exhibition.
