Across Generations

ACROSS GENERATIONS – Learning from Art, Culture, and One Another

All over the world, our modes of coexistence are undergoing major changes and dialogue between different age groups is of great importance in enabling people to live together in society. This brings various questions to the fore: How can younger and older people learn from one another in a process of mutual exchange? What subjects are of interest to younger and older people alike? What role might the museum and its collections play here?

WARUM INTERGENERATIVE VERMITTLUNGSARBEIT?

„Der Austausch zwischen Generationen umgibt und beschäftigt uns täglich, ob im privaten oder im beruflichen Umfeld. Der Umgang ist oftmals durch Regeln, Strukturen oder Traditionen geprägt. Im Projekt ACROSS GENERATIONS gehen wir der Frage nach, ob das Museum als Bildungsstätte ein geeigneter Ort für intergenerativen Austausch sein kann, wie dieser gestaltet sein muss und ob dabei gewohnte Bedingungen aufgebrochen werden können.“ (Patrick Presch)

about the project

ACROSS GENERATIONS is a prototype project in the field of cultural education.

Operating on a variety of levels, the project sets out to road-test how engaging with museum objects that play a role in the history of art and culture can promote concerted action and knowledge transfer between different generations. It will also sound out the potentials the museum offers as a new focus for recreation and leisure and a place where intergenerational associations can meet. In addition, the project will study the benefits that cultural institutions can derive from their experience with the new community of users.
 
The project anticipates that valuable knowledge can be gained from an “international view” of intergenerational learning and experience, and these insights will feed into the museum’s day-to-day work with visitors from different backgrounds and age groups, while providing stimulus for the kind of diversification that cultural institutions urgently require. The specialist debate on the subject will be supported by the process of transnational exchange focused on the nuances of family concepts, which are currently in a state of tremendous flux, and the realities of political and social change.
 
Launched in 2021, ACROSS GENERATIONS – Learning from Art, Culture, and One Another is a project of the different Goethe-Institutes in South-East Europe and the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
