Rundgang 2022

Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design

Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG Karlsruhe) is proud to present its Rundgang 2022. From July 21 to July 24 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 architecture for this year's Rundgang was developed and implemented collectively by the students of the Just Merged seminar under the direction of YRD.Works. The central element of the expansive intervention is translucent fabric panels installed at different levels in the university's atriums. The textile playfully creates new spaces within the existing architecture and divides the building into vertical and horizontal visual axes.

As a retrospective of 30 years of HfG Karlsruhe, the exhibition deliberately integrates elements that refer to the history of the university. The works enter into a spatial and thematic dialogue with each other, which visitors can experience on the first floor. The students show their ideas and objects on presentation surfaces and screens as well as in lectures and performances in the atriums of the university.

The Rundgang will open at 7pm on July 21, 2022. From July 21 to 24, the HfG will then offer a wide range of art, music and literature performances, film screenings, lectures and guided tours of the exhibition.

Opening hours: July 21, from 7pm / July 22 to July 24, from 11am–8pm.

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 organised 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.
