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.

Spatial Strategies (M.A.)

The M.A. SPATIAL STRATEGIES offers in-depth training in the analysis, research and design of action-oriented spaces. In view of the increasing dissolution of clear dividing lines between individual disciplines such as design, architecture, urbanism, art and digital media, the program offers a transdisciplinary course of study that is positioned at the interfaces of these disciplines.
Temporary spatial designs, scenographic productions and interventions in public space are the focal points here. Great emphasis is placed on methods of artistic and curatorial practice in relation to space. These are at the heart of a course that focuses on the creative translation of analyses and theses on complex social contexts into spatial arrangements and the development of time-based strategies in space.

The M.A. SPATIAL STRATEGIES spans two key areas:

SPACE AND SCENOGRAPHY is geared towards the design and staging of spaces using new media. The aim is a theme-oriented design of spaces of communication and interaction.

RESEARCH-BASED SPATIAL INTERVENTION is geared towards spatial research, spatial interventions, and projects in public spaces. Urban public spaces or interiors with a public character are at the core of strategies of spatial analysis and intervention, whereby space is understood as a social production process of perception, use and appropriation.

Located between exhibition design, urban design, art in public spaces and artistic research, the study program strives for transdisciplinary professionalism which includes an urban, curatorial competence, in addition to its creative independence. What is decisive here is the cultivation of the ability to analyse, visualise or map complex, social contexts, and to develop scenographic spatial concepts based on process- and narrative-oriented knowledge which meets the multifarious demands of today’s (public) spaces.

The curriculum is built around and links project work, theoretical, exploratory, and artistic methods in space along transdisciplinary interfaces to design, art, media and urbanism. The MA is completed in the fourth semester by writing an individual master’s thesis, which can have a theoretical or practical focus. The study is aimed at those who would like to develop specifically individual focus within the spectrum of contemporary spatial practices.
