In our special new area called Die Kunstwerft (Art Wharf) you can now explore the many facets of making art and gather creative practical experience yourself. Our thematic focus is color until the beginning of 2015.  Subdivided into four sections, Die Kunstwerft is opening up color spaces to the public, offering you insights into what happens in artists’ studios. There creative processes are made visible, and you are invited to experience and discover while experimenting with art yourself. Our program provides room for creative experimentation such as designing your own pictures on magnetic boards or with paper and pen, pencil or crayon.

Integrating also our olfactory and haptic senses, spaces for color-phenomena and synaesthetic experience invite you to try out things for yourself. Examples illustrate information about making colors and applying them. We even are showing a film on the subject of the artist’s studio. The sum of all this aims to offer you the opportunity of gaining a wide range of insights into the creative processes behind art. Grownups and children alike can enhance their knowledge of the Kunsthalle’s collection in a playful way via memory games or puzzles.
