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, (...)

Just arrived: Sensing the Ocean. A Collaboration between Art, Design and Science

“Sensing the Ocean. A Collaboration between Art, Design and Science.”

Tom Duscher, Stephan Sachs, Manfred Schulz (Editors)

“Sensing the Ocean” is based on the collaboration between the Kiel Marine Research Cluster of Excellence The Future Ocean and the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. The book shows how artists, designers and scientists can complement each other creatively, what differentiates artistic and scientific research, and illustrates how the interplay of competence gives rise to new insights.

Fundamentals of Art

The basics class is the common, creative year of orientation, for all students of Fine Arts as well as for the students of Art for Secondary School Teachers. Using exercises and tasks the students are guided towards process-based continuity in the everyday life of a studio, at the beginning with questions regarding sketching/drawing  – what is line, rhythm and time? – as well as the articulation of figures and forms in the environment. This is expanded by exercises in investigations into the effect of colour and material in extended internal and external space. These attempt at order should sensualise and enable the students to formulate  independent artistic questions in parallel. The students are expected to develop this further on their own. All means, media and techniques are permitted. Everything is possible, there are no limits to experimentation. For this development – in addition to the workshops and their own workspace in the fundamentals room –  the students have at their disposal a project room which allows them to install their works in a spatial context and so to experience their works away from “external noise”. Additionally, presentations of work stages and reflection – in the group and individual talks  – form another constant in the basics year. Here, they investigate questions of which thought origin and which intention does each artistic production follow and which actual effect is achieved. In addition to continuity in artistic practice the students are made aware of the changing tendencies in contemporary art in information course and events. The teaching staff present during excursions and via slide shows theme spectra such as: aspects of drawing, colour as material and in painting, form and sculpture in space, photography of the present, installations, sound and video art as well as performative and time-based approaches to work. The students also have access to an internal – continually expanding – basis database (INFO – TAKE) with film portraits of artists and statements which enable them to independently strengthen their creative attitude to the present. The basics class is understood as a school of sight/vision which on the basis of their own and other artistic productions open the students up to learn to differentiate artistic qualities, to recognise them and be able to name them. This ability in the work produced in the basics year should open the path for the students to be able to continue their studies in the specialist classes.
