The Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG Karlsruhe) is proud to present its Annual Exhibition 2019. From July 18 to 21 the atriums, workshops, and rooms of HfG Karlsruhe become a vast exhibition space. Students from the fields of Exhibition Design and Scenography, Communication Design, Art Research and Media Philosophy, Media Art, and Product Design will 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.

HfG Karlsruhe takes this year’s Annual Exhibition as an opportunity to address forms of cooperation in everyday student life and beyond. Under the motto “collective, collaborative, cooperative,” various collective methods of artistic practice are made tangible and discussed. What are the benefits of collaborative work and where can its limits be explored and negotiated time and again? The 2019 exhibition serves as a platform to initiate, inspire, and learn from each other.

The Annual Exhibition includes a wide range of art, musical and literary performances, film screenings, talks as well as guided tours through the exhibition. Collective and performing arts, design and theory groups are invited to speak about their forms of collaboration and to share their experiences with the visitors and with each other. In addition, the topic of collective work will be examined from different perspectives, put up for discussion and critically questioned.

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. Prerequisites for admission to the program are the general or subject-related higher education entrance qualification as well as the successful completion of an entrance examination. Studies commence in the winter semester.
