Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design

Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG Karlsruhe) is proud to present its Rundgang 2021/22. From December 9 to January 6 the atriums of HfG Karlsruhe will become a vast exhibition space. More than four hundred 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 create passageways and visual relationships.

The Rundgang will open at 6pm December 9, 2021. From December 10 to 12, 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 6, 2022 (ZKM Open House Day), when visitors will be able to participate in various event formats throughout the day. You can also follow the programm via live-stream on our vimeo account.

Check our website for an overview of the events, the live-stream link and an opportunity to browse through a selection of the works of our students. Current Corona guidelines for events apply for the Rundgang, as well.

About Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design
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: Our 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, we have 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.
