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, (...)

HANC – Healthy Ageing Network of Competence

Under the leadership of the SDU – Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, this project brought together the Muthesius University, the Univeristies of Applied Sciences in Kiel and Flensburg, the State Association for Health Research in SH e.V. and the WelfareTechRegion, the Odense University Hospital and the SDU – Forskerservice. The start of HANC was in January 2013 and the end in December 2014. The mission of HANC was firstly in the collation and use of new knowledge in the field of “Healthy Ageing”. This knowledge was to be transformed into tangible products and services for the active ageing of citizens in the region.

redefining safety – Designing for Age

The superordinate question of motivation served as the starting point for the project work of the Muthesius University in the HANC project: how can one motivate older people to lead an active and healthy life? The type of question required the explanation of basic ideas, e.g. “being old”, “getting old” and “motivation”. The work was based on the one hand on the understanding of age in its diversity and complexity and on the other on the investigation of possible approaches to motivation.
