Education and outreach
What is reality? What do Surrealists dream about? Why is prison architecture intriguing? Where does consciousness end and the unconscious begin? Which artists were inspired by obsessions? Just how real are surreal worlds?
The Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection comprises intriguing artworks of a fantastical nature. The images on view allow visitors to peer into psychological chasms, illogical scenes, secret longings, and artistic transgressions. A tour through the exhibition gives insight into the history of this important private collection.
Audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and other activities provide structured approaches to the exhibitions, background information, and space for reflection or experimentation. The museum also offers private guided tours. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you.
Every third Thursday of the month, the ‘Film Salon Charlottenburg’ screens films related to Surrealism in the middle of the museum. A short, guided tour through the exhibition ‘Surreal Worlds’ is included in the film screening.
Equipped with magnifying glasses and flashlights, children can discover the secrets of art in the Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection. Workshops give them a chance to experiment with artistic techniques. They can illustrate stories from their dreams in comic book form or embark on a journey through time back to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s Paris.
