Rundgang at HfG Karlsruhe
Today we would like to invite you to the Rundgang at the HfG Karlsruhe taking place from December 9th, 2021 to January 6th, 2022.
Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG Karlsruhe) is proud to present its Rundgang 2021/22. From December 9th to January 6th the atriums of HfG Karlsruhe will become a vast exhibition space. More than 400 students from the fields of Exhibition Design and Scenography, Communication Design, Art Research and Media Philosophy, Media Art, and Product Design give visitors insights into their artistic and theoretical work, products, designs, and concepts. The public will be confronted with the ideas of a new generation of artists and designers, curators, scenographers, philosophers, art historians, film directors, and photographers.
Exhibits will take place on various presentation areas that cross the atriums on the first floor and which the students are allowed to appropriate with their works. The projects are divided according to subject areas; however, many interdisciplinary works will also be shown. The open architecture of the building, which gives the university its special atmosphere, is marked with architectural elements. The arrangement of the exhibition walls and platforms creates passageways and visual relationships.
The Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG Karlsruhe) offers a unique space for dedicated learning, research and experimental development. In order to learn how to deal with a complex and diverse reality, studies at HfG Karlsruhe are consistently organized across disciplines: anyone who studies theory also gains skills in creative and artistic practice. Conversely, studies in art or design engage in theoretical reflections. This combination of degree programs in Communication Design, Product Design, Media Art, Exhibition Design and Scenography, Art Research and Media Philosophy thrives on the greatest possible freedom: Students have the opportunity to develop according to their own interests and strengths, to determine their individual focus and to develop a personal profile in conclusion. As new technologies evolve over the next few decades, independent minds are more in demand than ever. Against this background, the university has also decided to keep the Diploma and the Master’s degree. A huge variety of international partnerships with renowned universities enable students to put what they have learned into a global context. At HfG Karlsruhe there are about twenty students per professor. In small groups and through project-oriented work, each individual receives optimal support. Additionally, an excellent range of technical equipment and diverse workshops offer the best possible training. Studying, teaching and research at HfG are in close cooperation with one of the best and most innovative museums in the world—the ZKM, Center for Art and Media. HfG Karlsruhe ties directly into the ideas and concepts of the Bauhaus tradition—a tradition in which the design of the future is seen as a central social task.
The Rundgang will open on December 9th, 2021 at 6 p.m., but just for internal students. From December 10th to 12th, the HfG will then offer a wide range of art, music, and literature performances, film screenings, lectures, and guided tours of the exhibition. The final day will be January 6th, 2022 (ZKM Open House Day), when visitors will be able to participate in various event formats throughout the day.
