Next Generation Please!

In collaboration with Bozar, WIELS opens its doors to young people who actively question their educational institution and by extension the society they are living in, offering them a space where they can address the questions of youth representation and the appropriation of its image in contemporary society. They will conclude their work with films and a workshop. Are you between 15 and 25 years old and are you concerned with these issues?

Discover WIELS with a class or group

Appreciating contemporary art can be easier with the help of a skilled guide who understands the various facets of an artist's work. Are you a teacher or a group monitor? If so, contact our mediation team: they will accommodate any group request and will spark everyone's interest in the course of a dynamic guided tour. The visit can be complemented by an on-demand workshop.

Guided visits only upon reservation.
