Join our teacher network. You will receive three to four times a year a newsletter telling about coming and actual exhibitions, including educational services such as courses, guided tours and teaching materials. Every new exhibition is followed up with a special guided tour for teachers, if possible with the participation of the artist. Here you get a remarkable insight into the exhibition.
We offer good tips and ideas about the teaching of contemporary art and deliver teaching materials free of charge, if one has been produced for the exhibition.
Exhibition posters are also available free of charge.

Courses and workshops
The museum often holds short introduction courses and workshops for teachers and student groups with invited artists. As a member you will get informed through our newsletter.
Guided tours for groups
We arrange in collaboration with the teacher introductions to our temporary exhibitions. The tours can last, as previously agreed, between 45 minutes and two hours. Phone and book a guided tour in advance. It is possible to eat own sandwiches in our little videocafé.
Even if your group does not wish a guided tour, you can always book a time to get the best conditions.
The museum’s sound and video collection
A very interesting opportunity is to be introduced to the museum’s sound and video collection. Here your group will discover, for instance, what sound art is, come closer to its different genres and their fusion with other art forms. The museum has prepared a written material in Danish called “Lydnøglen” about the history of sound art through out the 20th century, especially focusing on the boundaries between visual arts, poetry and music/sound. A teaching material about video art called “Videonøglen” is also available.
In the museum’s library you can as a teacher or student find special literature about installation art, sound and video art, film and performance etc. It is unfortunately not possible to borrow books, but you can perhaps copy shorter articles.
In collaboration with the School Service Authority in Copenhagen, the museum prepares teaching materials, mainly in Danish, which either relate to the exhibitions or concentrate on art terms and concepts within contemporary art, such as installation art, video and sound art, animation etc.
These materials can be distributed as a class set when a group is coming to the museum for a guided tour.
