Traditionally the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design (Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart) hosts its annual Rundgang (annual exhibition) at the end of the academic year. From July 15 until the 17 approximately 900 students will open their studios to the public. Works and projects of all four departments—Fine Arts, Architecture, Design, Art Related Studies and Conservation—will be shown. The programme will present a wide variety of exhibitions, performances, events and artistic experiments. The Rundgang is the highlight of the year for students, teachers, staff and visitors. The exhibition will be officially opened by Martin Böhnke, the chief administrative officer of the academy, and the vice-rectors Prof. Dr. Nils Büttner, Prof. Volker Lehnert and Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Tobias Wallisser MSc on Friday, July 15, at 6pm on Campus Weißenhof. In addition to the exhibition many events will take place. Apart from the awarding of prizes, such as the DAAD-Scholarship and the Academy-Prizes we offer themed tours through the faculties.

The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design (Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart), with a history extending back over 250 years, is one of the largest of its kind with University status in Germany. With 18 academic degree courses in four departments (Fine Arts, Architecture, Design, and Art Related Studies, Conservation), it provides a broad spectrum of educational and research opportunities to approximately 900 students. Its 32 excellently equipped workshop facilities include metal, wood and plastic workshops, workshops for bronze casting and painting techniques as well as print, textile, glass and bookbinding workshops. Technical instructors are always on hand to support students in putting their ideas into practice.

Students study in small classes under the intensive supervision of professors, academic staff and part-time lecturers. The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design is entitled to confer degrees at doctoral and post-doctoral level.

Students can achieve further qualifications in areas ranging from Architecture, Art Related Studies, Art History and Media Theory to Art Education and Philosophy. The Academy also has an excellent infrastructure: situated in a prime location on the Stuttgart Killesberg, it takes only a few minutes from Stuttgart central station to Stuttgart Killesberg (final stop) by public transport. It has a well-stocked, up-to-date library in the fields of art, stage set design, architecture, restoration, design and art history as well as a student canteen and a kindergarten. Exchanges with partner universities around the world, and other international programmes, provide a multitude of opportunities for outgoing students from Stuttgart State Academy to study abroad, and for international incoming students from partner institutions and around the world to benefit from attending study courses at the Stuttgart State Academy. The Reinwaldhaus in Bodman near Lake Constance is available as a venue for class study trips. The Stuttgart Academy is committed to artistic innovation and sees itself as a testing ground for exemplary artistic work where research and teaching unite. This promotes the connection between works of art and design and theories of art and offers opportunities for cross-genre artistic activities. The Academy also contributes to contemporary aesthetic discourse by means of exhibitions, events and publications.
