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. The Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design welcomes the helpfulness, solidarity and participation of its students, teachers and staff.

Spatial Strategies

The Spatial Strategies course brings together the Scenography/Interior Design (B.A., 8 Semesters) and Spatial Strategies (M.A., 4 Semesters) under one roof.

With a focus on project work, the Spatial Strategies course is about developing design skills in relation to media, political, artistic and social spatial issues. These are taught and developed in the form of lectures, seminars and practical exercises. On the scientific basis of philosophy, sociology, the cultural, media and image sciences as well as movement research, spatial strategies are not only analyzed theoretically and empirically in their historical and current forms, but also applied to concrete projects. Transmedial artistic research in spatial contexts as well as critical scenography – also in public space – circumscribe the field of activity here.

The project work is dedicated to the design of scenographic temporary, experimental and urban spaces as well as curatorial practices in space. The interface of scenography, architecture, film, art, design and digital media determines the aesthetic work with image, space, object and installation. The scope of action ranges from minimal interventions to typological redefinitions of spaces in the field of application between materiality and digitality.

The BA Scenography/Interior Design program is designed to enable the development of design skills at the image, communication and implementation levels for independent work in this transdisciplinary field.
Based on the standards of Scenography/Interior Design, the MA program Spatial Strategies is intended to enable the in-depth development and design of individual ways of working on methods and theses along socially relevant spatial issues.

The transdisciplinarily oriented degree program in spatial strategies at the Muthesius Kunsthochschule thus takes into account the growing importance of artistic research as well as scenographic and curatorial design practice in contemporary cultural production.
