We have established pedagogical connections with the Geneva Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO) through its Cultural Mediation Office team in order to explore together the means of introducing students to the importance and influence of contemporary art. Students visit the museum and the MAMCO staff visits the students at school.

In the context of the visual arts programme for the International Baccalaureate, students carried out a comparative study of two or more artists. As the regional centre for modern and contemporary art, MAMCO has a critical role to play in every part of this comparative study. Students in their last year will explore in depth the works of one of the artists they have studied and show how that has influenced the development of one of their own artistic projects. The results of the project will be exhibited. The expertise of the outreach teams and the MAMCO exhibition commission will be fundamental for the students in terms of presenting, hanging and showcasing their works. This experience is designed to result in the diploma exhibition at the end of the year.
