Learning & Outreach.

FOTO ARSENAL WIEN is an open place to experience, recognize and see through the medium of photography in all its forms.

How do we consume images? Who produces them and provides information about them? Which tools are chosen? What attitude do we develop towards them?

And what do they show us?

Designing and reflecting our visual future

Learning & Outreach complements the program of the FOTO ARSENAL WIEN with the fundamental part of visual media competence and art education.

We offer a variety of creative opportunities to understand, analyze and actively deal with the flood of images and the media world. Our vision is a mature, hierarchy-free media society.

Analog and digital image forms and ways of viewing images are playfully explored, creative ideas are developed and implemented in workshops, and exhibition formats are offered for all age groups.

The empowerment of children and young people is an integral part of the FOTO ARSENAL WIEN. With offers for school classes and in the leisure sector, we offer voyages of discovery into the world of photography and contemporary forms of access to visual worlds.

For Schools

In the current exhibitions, the FOTO ARSENAL WIEN offers tours to convey the exhibition content, artistic practices and a reflective examination of the medium. These dialog-oriented, participative tours are free of charge for school classes. (Duration: 45-60 minutes).

In addition to the exhibition tour, our workshops focus on the pupils' own creative design in and around the themes of the exhibitions. (Duration: 90 minutes).

As a partner for projects, we discuss socially relevant topics and help to implement artistic ideas to enable students to have a direct encounter with art and photography.

For educators, we regularly offer free exhibition tours and information events on our education programs.

For Circles of Friends and Communities

We are open to the implementation of ideas. We would be delighted if we could plan and implement a joint series of events or an intensive workshop weekend together.
