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, (...)

Interactive Media

The study of Interactive Media concerns itself with conceptual, communication-specific and technical design questions in interactive and networked media.

The aesthetics and semiotics of digital media are examined and their interaction principles analysed in seminars and projects. Various media forms of presentation are tried and tested in interdisciplinary projects, form information design and networked applications via animation and motion graphics to media-technical installations.

New interaction concepts are no longer confined to operating the interfaces to computers, they are increasingly characterised by the re-discovery of human perception, thought and action. New, social network strategies have lead to a reversal of classical communication models, from which recipients themselves have become the transmitters. What further influence will this new form of publishing have on communication behaviour and our society? This is what this field of study aims to discuss in a critical and creative manner. In advanced courses, it is possible to deal more profoundly with the design possibilities of interactive media and to complete the Bachelor’s degree programme with a dissertation in Interactive Media.

The Master’s Degree Programme “INTERACTIVE INFORMATION DESIGN”

After completing a Bachelor’s degree at the Muthesius, students may study for a Master’s degree in “Interactive Information Design” as part of the degree courses in Communication Design. Interactive Information Design does not limit itself to monitor displays but can be integrated into the design and presentation of public information spaces in a variety of ways, and thereby gain in emotionality and experience. As an installation or interaction concept, it interacts with real objects, becomes a mediator between observer and artefact, becomes itself a spatial design.
In this context, information design offers students an interdisciplinary interface and links to other Master’s programmes in Communication Design and the Muthesius University. As a result, extensive synergies can be exploited and created.
