The Fondation Beyeler launches Speed Art, a rapid reaction game about the works in its collection
The game focuses on artworks and artists included in the Beyeler Collection.



BASEL.- As part of its commitment to art education for children and young people, the Fondation Beyeler is launching the fast-paced card game Speed Art. The game focuses on artworks and artists included in the Beyeler Collection, provides information about them and encourages art lovers who are young or young at heart to take a very close look at their cards. In the process, players discover connections between works by famous artists such as van Gogh, Cézanne, Klee, Mondrian and many others. Speed Art, which is immediately available from the Fondation Beyeler’s Art Shop, both in the museum and online, is a light-hearted Christmas present about art and culture that is suitable for the entire family. Its creation has been made possible by UBS, a long-standing and dedicated sponsor of the Fondation Beyeler and its partner for art education for families and young people.

Art enriches daily life and opens up new perspectives. It gives visible form to our feelings, thoughts, fears and wishes. There are many ways to get closer to the diversity of art. With SPEED ART, a playful approach to art clearly lies in the forefront.

The game provides a simple, easily understandable introduction to the Fondation Beyeler’s renowned collection of modern and contemporary art. Players are encouraged to take a fresh look at some of the best known masterpieces in the Beyeler Collection and to identify similarities, for example between works by van Gogh and Cézanne, motifs like nudes and representations of animals; figurative and abstract works. They need to notice instantly how the works differ and how they resemble one another. Whether played with members of the family or with friends, at home or while travelling, the game is likely to result in lively discussion and plenty of laughter! And the question “Is that abstract?!” can also be discussed in front of other artworks the next time players visit the museum.

Speed Art is the result of cooperation between the renowned game publishers Carlit plus Ravensburger, game designers and the Fondation Beyeler’s art education team.

Its creation has been made possible by UBS, a long-standing and dedicated sponsor of the Fondation Beyeler and its partner for art education for families and young people.

Like the successful earlier book What is Art? and the mobile app ArtShaker, Speed Art is intended to encourage as many people as possible, and particularly younger members of the public, to feel enthusiastic about art.

As from 21 November 2015 and for the entire pre-Christmas period, SPEED ART is available solely in the Fondation Beyeler’s Art Shop. From January 2016 onwards, it will also be available in toy shops.
