Help for art and design students from Ukraine

Art and design students from Ukraine are welcome at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. In order to build a creative bridge, we have enabled a fluent transition for refugee students. We are open to working out individual solutions together which are adapted to the respective situation of Ukrainian students and which allow them to continue their artistic and design work as quickly as possible. This is carried out in direct consultation with the responsible professors.

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 thesis 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.
