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.

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.
