Scenography/Interior Design (B.A.)

The courses in Scenography / Interior Design within the field of Spatial Strategies deal with the theme of space and the possibilities of its design in the sense of an extended, dynamic definition of space. The content refers to social and public spaces, cultural and medial spaces, communicational and interactional spaces, in the narrow sense functional spaces, vitual spaces, overlaps as well as interferences of imaginary and real environments.

Developing and professionally implementing at all level concepts for such spaces and their use is the central skill the students learn. This comprises interdisciplinary artistic-academic project development as well as the individual, design discourse with reference to different spatial effects. Here, the atmospheric and pnenomenological aspects in the sense of scenography and staging are at the centre of the development and design of primarily exhibition and museums as spaces of learning and experience.
The implementation ensues in the development of protoypical and singular objects and installations as interventions in the mostly pre-defined or temporary spatial structures and leads to the production of new spaces and utilisation concepts up to space-ordering and –structuring systems. In particular, the B.A. programme develops the design abilities and the necessary constructive-technical skills for individual conceptualisation. The aim is to obtain the professional skills to be able to act and work in a reflective manner both individually and in a team in response to continually changing requirements within evolving and open professions.
