The Spandau Citadel is not only one of the most important Renaissance fortresses in Europe, a historical island and a unique cultural centre, but is also developing into a centre for modern and contemporary art. International visitors, Spandau residents, pupils and people interested in culture are drawn to the varied and exciting exhibitions. As an extension of our educational programme, you are cordially invited every last Thursday of the month to our Art After Work format at the Citadel. Changing guests such as artists, curators, museum actors will give you insights behind the scenes of museum operations in a dialogical round, contextualize exhibition contents and explain (art) historical backgrounds – from positions in contemporary art to confrontations with the past. The focus is on a relaxed exchange, stimulating discussions, informative conversations and a cultural start to the evening. So let’s lean back, turn on the synapses, sharpen the tongues and activate the earcup – “Shell we talk”?
