In the focus “Art Handling”, we follow the trail of our Art Handling Team and learn what happens to a work of art at Schaulager, from the moment it arrives in a crate and is carefully unpacked with gloved hands to the precise recording of its condition and final hanging or installation in a storage space.
Tours at Schaulager are sensuous, critical and contemplative, accompanied by spontaneous, animated and diversified dialogues as well as various activities. We also look into how contemporary art is preserved at Schaulager and give an insight into the meticulous care required to store works of art. On our tours, we give free rein to the imagination and take inspiration from the immediacy of the originals in the spirit of our motto: “Learning from the artists.”
The Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation’s collection offers a rich body of artistic works from Classic Modernism to the present day.
All modules are suggestions or starting points, which can also include other work as desired. The modules can also be easily combined.
