The annual exhibition “Einblick Ausblick”, Opening on July 15th

The annual exhibition of the Muthesius University of Art also takes place in the Corona year, but its concept is by far the most unusual insight of the art school. This is made possible by ONLINESTREAMING and around 50 locations in the Kiel area, which the student planning team was able to gain as a cooperation partner. They give the students the opportunity to exhibit and present their work from the fields of communication design, fine art, industrial design and spatial strategies. There are stations from Gaarden to Holtenau and around the art college. There is an information station at the university itself.

The students not only want to avoid large crowds of people on campus, (...)

Art History and Visual Cultures

Art History is at at the centre of historical and current visual culture, in as much as the images of a culture relate to the images of art created in it: to visual inventions, subjects, compositions, techniques, effects of the art image. A term for art formulated in the Ancient World, which has differentiated since the Early Modern period and has developed from there constantly up to the present, cannot be considered in isolation but in a closely mutual exchange with the today’s diverse, especially visual cultures transported by mass-media, also with sciences, with politics with advertising etc. Art as a partial field behaves critically towards the culture and society which produces it. It supplies mirrored, distorted or counter images of culture and develops images of the future. Art History as a subject of a university for art and design dedicates itself initally to historical visual cultures as a whole: to the long-lasting image tradition – right up to the present, to the relations of contemporary art and visual cultures towards art and visual history and the functions of art in the context of a variety of image/visual practices. In the context of global visual cultures, the western term art becomes more acute.
