The Edith-Russ-Haus initiates media and art education programmes in which children, young people and adults can get to know artistic work through analogue and digital media. At the same time, the programme aims to establish a network of media artists, educators, teachers, and universities as well as scientific and cultural institutions in order to jointly develop concepts for an artistic-pedagogical practice with media. These are primarily realised in connection with the exhibitions and events of the Edith-Russ-Haus, more rarely also in mobile projects organised in schools and other institutions.

Media competence is considered a key qualification of the future knowledge society. With the expansion of the media art and pedagogical offers, the aim is to make the different forms and effects of media accessible to people. In discussions about media art and in projects, they learn to better understand and actively shape the strategies and ciphers of a predominantly commercial media world. An essential part of the educational programme is the participants' practical engagement with the new media. Creativity and "networked thinking" are used as strategies for solving complex problems.  The pedagogical offers aim to help making progress in social learning and the mediation of conceptual and formal-aesthetical knowledge, just as critical thinking.

The programmes referred to above will be held exclusively in German.

The educational programme of the Edith-Russ-Haus is made by Jan Blum and Sandrine Teuber. If you are interested in the programme or would like to book a workshop, please contact museumsvermittlung(at)
