Together with our partners Robert. F. Kennedy Human Rights and the University of Zürich, we have developed a special educational program for children and students.
The Mouth Is for Speaking makes the complex topic of human rights accessible to audiences of different ages. The aim is to draw attention to ongoing human rights violations and to identify various ways of actively campaigning for the preservation of human rights. The works encourage people to develop an individual form of activism. The visit and the workshops aim to create empathy and an awareness of options for individual action in the local environment. The audience not only gets to know individual artworks but also learns that there are many different ways to express their convictions and to be heard.

The educational program comprises preparation and follow-up that utilizes theory, an interactive tour of the exhibition, and a practical artistic workshop. During the workshop, students find new languages — be they visual or physical — that allow them to express themselves without words. Those who prefer to express themselves through their bodies will be especially inspired by the choreographed dance movements in Seline Baumgartner‘s work.
