The Berlin Summer University of the Arts returns this year, offering a large variety of creative workshops and online courses. From June to September 2022, the Berlin University of the Arts presents an international workshop programme aimed at artists, advanced students, and graduates from all artistic disciplines. Over 25 workshops in the fields of Fine Arts, Design, Music, Sound Arts and Performing Arts, as well as interdisciplinary courses provide an excellent opportunity to nurture your artistic practice and connect to creatives from around the globe.

In 2022, the Berlin Summer University of the Arts offers workshops in three sections:

Embodiment examines the ways in which physical activity and specific body knowledge, physical encounter and its absence can be productively used in artistic projects. This section includes the online workshop Exp. — Questions of Perception in Art and Science for students from different fields, as well as an interdisciplinary course on Biographical-Documentary Working Methods in the Context of Art.

Material Cultures immerses into a specific artistic discipline, focuses on intensive artistic research practices and uncovers their potentials by concentrating on one material. The workshop "From B With Love" – Experimental Imagemaking in Risography focusses on visual stagings of urban spaces while the participants of Drawing in the Nature Lab develop a graphical interpretation of the plant world. Furthermore, an international team of lecturers presents Visual Ethnography as Activist Work.

Last but not least, Borders and Encounters explores new possibilities of collective artistic work and exchange within a local or territorially broad and low-threshold encounter space. In this section, The Berlin Flâneur: Walking the City, Narrating the City will allow participants to experience Berlin in the format of a "City-Writing Lab". In addition, the workshop Culture Writing: Textures of Things, Thresholds, and Bodies approaches phenomena in everyday culture and spaces through writing techniques.

We invite our participants to explore a great variety of methods and discourses in contemporary art. Passionate teachers will guide you through the process of developing your artistic voice and visual language, realizing your ideas, and sharing them with like-minded people in the creative metropolis Berlin.
