“Shifting Points of View” is an education initiative intended to support thinking and acting in a way that promotes democracy—through an ever-expanding art education programme consisting of discursive guided tours, digital offers, practical art seminars, workshops and much more.
Knowing what is, what has been, and what might come, forming opinions, and engaging in debate and discourse in order to foster a lively democratic culture is at the heart of a major cultural education initiative by the Städel Museum titled “Shifting Points of View. Seeing Differently. Understanding One Another.”
Shifting Points of View is intended to support thinking and acting in a way that promotes democracy. It allows historical developments and processes that have shaped the social value system of freedom and democracy to be impressively retraced through active engagement with artworks at the Städel Museum.
The works in the collection from 1300 to the present encompass a wide range of subject matter, telling stories that include topics such as globalisation, resistance, utopia, emancipation, power, oppression, and populism.
