Mediation services


The special concept of the museum DASMAXIMUM does not focus on short-term exhibition events, but on intensive experience with major works of contemporary art. The selection of a few artists and large groups of works, as well as tranquillity, light and space, deliberately contribute to the intensity of a visit to the museum. The permanence of the collection is an occasion for return and new discovery. The focus is not on imparting knowledge, but on the personal perception and experience of art. Accordingly, the museum has developed its own mediation formats that do not obstruct direct access to art, but instead focus on the individual experience with art.

School & Education

With the rainbow train through DASMAXIMUM

approx. 60 minutes
Kindergarten and 1st-2nd grade elementary school
3€/child // educators free
Appointment via the museum office

Colors play a central role in art. For children, too, the first approach to painting often comes from experimenting with color. What happens when I mix or juxtapose individual colors? In the same way, the rainbow and its color spectrum exert a great fascination. We use the "rainbow train" to travel through the museum and explore the world of colors. Are there only painted colors, or can you also paint with light? What do colors have to do with feelings and does everyone feel colors in the same way? Can stories be told based on colors?

The offer would like to open a first access to art and at the same time put the individuality of the art and color perception in the foreground.

The KunstBegegnung is based on the activity sheets that we have developed for all artists in the museum. Each KunstBegegnung is dedicated to one artist. Together with a museum educator, the students approach the work through their own observations, perceptions and descriptions. Small creative tasks help to better understand and deepen the artistic idea. The individual approach of the students to the works of art is in the foreground of the art encounter and, depending on the age level, is supplemented by art historical classification.

This program also focuses on independent experience and discovery of art. For the most part, the students themselves design the tour of the museum for their classmates. In small groups, the students first explore a part of the museum and then independently select a work that particularly interests them. Drawing a pencil sketch practises looking closely and draws attention to details. Together, the respective groups exchange ideas and consider how they can present the work of art to the class. During the subsequent joint tour, the selected works are presented and discussed together with the museum staff.

The concept is relatively variable. For example, a break can be taken as needed, or at higher grade levels an initial question can be discussed, such as "To what extent did the artist define or expand the concept of art? The activity sheets can also be used to delve deeper into the work of the artist.

financed by the circle of friends and supporters DASMAXIMUM e.V.

Since 2015, DASMAXIMUM KunstGegenwart in Traunreut has been running the project "Oak Plantings in Honor of Joseph Beuys" to commemorate Beuys' idea of "7000 Oaks". Over a period of five years, Beuys planted 7000 trees, each with a basalt stele, in the urban area of Kassel. For him, however, the tree and the basalt were only the visible sign of a social process that was initiated by the planting action and which Beuys called a social sculpture.

Based on this project, the museum has developed the FutureAtelier. The title of the workshop series refers to two well-known quotes by Joseph Beuys, which at the same time illustrate the goals of the series: "The studio is between people" and "The future we want must be invented. Otherwise we will get one that we don't want": The aim is to develop creative solutions and approaches for a better future for society and the environment through collaborative action.

In a first module in the museum, each class collects ideas for change requests. Only the areas "people" and "nature" are specified. For the topic that receives the most votes in a vote, a visual form is developed in a 2nd module at school that can be used to reach the public. In a third module, the results are presented in a public presentation. You can find more information about the ZukunftsAtelier here.


Art Encounter for Vocational School Students

4 hours
Vocational school classes, vocational orientation classes, trainees
Price on demand

The focus of these KunstBegegnungen is on the work of Georg Baselitz or John Chamberlain and includes an active creative part. In a 4 hour workshop the participants are supported by art teacher Susanne Frigge in getting involved with the selected works of art, perceiving impressions and asking questions. The subsequent creative part trains the senses on a very basic level: How can material be deformed? How does it feel? What is a ductus and how is a color tone created?  Simple drawing and modeling techniques are learned in order to artistically implement one's own experiences and thoughts.

The workshop is aimed specifically at vocational orientation and vocational school classes or trainees, in order to discover new creative strategies outside of the school or company environment, which can be drawn upon in the career search phase or in professional life.


If you would like to visit the museum alone with your class or have other placement needs, please feel free to contact us.

The Art Encounters are based on the activity sheets that we have created for each of our artists. Together with a museum employee, the children and young people work with one artist at a time. The focus is on their own observation, experimentation and discovery. In a very individual way, the participants learn not only about the work of the artist and their view of art, but also about themselves and their own understanding of art. Meanwhile, parents can explore the museum at their leisure.


Active sheets

Free tour
For families with children and teenagers
The activity sheets are available free of charge at the cash desk (One activity sheet per child/per visit)

The activity sheets enable families to explore the museum on their own and take a close look at an artist. The focus is on taking a close look at the art and experiencing it in a playful way, which helps families to experience art in a very close and individual way. The activity sheets for all of the museum's artists are available at the museum ticket office. Please understand that only one activity sheet per child can be issued per visit. The experience is all the more intense for it.
