Contemporary art is not necessarily always immediately understandable. It can, however, frequently contribute to the way we deal with our present-day world, to posing questions or to introduce us to a new artistic sphere.

Thematic lectures and discussions appropriate to each respective exhibition are offered in order to highlight the contexts in which art is created and to place works by contemporary artists in an art historical context or to draw interdisciplinary references.
