Higher education

Out of the box

An interactive tour with creative tasks in the museum rooms.

Mu.ZEE also offers an ‘Out of the box’ tour for students in higher education. An inspiring tour of the museum that challenges pupils to look, question, discuss, explore in greater depth and create. What could art mean for your subject? What would be your definition of art? How do you look at art? How coloured are your cultural goggles? Would you be able to make this yourself, or has the artist gone beyond what you could achieve? And what role do artists, art and museums play in visual art today? Ample questions for a fascinating discussion while roaming the galleries!

Target group: students aged 18 and over
Duration: 1.5 hours
Cost: 70 euros/ guide
Number: max. 25 students/ guide

With an open mind

An interactive and conversational tour. This tour is inspired by the method known as ‘Visual Thinking Strategies’.

Together with your group, you view and discuss a number of artworks with an open mind. The guide chiefly acts as a moderator. He or she asks questions, links back to what has been said and asks follow-up questions. There is no such thing as a wrong answer, because the fundamental question is: what can you see? This can vary enormously from person to person. You are viewing with your own frame of reference and with your own experiences. Perhaps you will modify an idea when you hear someone else’s vision? Or build further on what someone else has to say? You get far more out of an artwork as a group than you would do alone!

The method is based on Visual Thinking Strategies, developed for the MoMA in New York. Because visitors remember little of a tour if the information is insufficiently linked to their own lives, this method starts with input from the visitor, not from the guide’s knowledge. Everyone can participate, regardless of their education or cultural background, as no prior knowledge is required. By naming what you see, you look more carefully; and by taking different visions on board, you broaden your outlook.
