Costs: adults 10 CHF (incl. admission), teenagers 13–16 years 5 CHF (incl. admission) 

HeK+ artwork conversation

Every person has a slightly different perception of a work of art… Our conversations offer the opportunity to encounter individual works of contemporary digital art in a relaxed setting. Starting from one’s own perception, this discursive exchange offers the opportunity to deepen one’s knowledge of contemporary art and learn more about the digital present.

Please find the dates in our program.

Duration: 2h (10:00-12:00)
Costs: included in admission price

Intergenerational Museum Encounters

How did this robot get into the HeK? What does this machine perceive? Who could these interactive glasses belong to? The works in the current exhibition serve as inspiration for children and senior citizens. Together they invent wild stories about the digital world and capture them in images and words. In a comfortable setting with syrup and cake, these are then sent home as a reminder via postcard app.

You can also book this tour with your family, your club or with friends.

Duration: 2 hours 
Costs: surcharge to price of admission:

  • private groups and public institutions: 180 CHF
