Develop your artistic practice further, connect with international artists, and create new spaces for artistic exchange together at the Berlin Summer University of the Arts 2024. From June to October, the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) offers a diverse workshop programme aimed at artists, advanced students and graduates from all artistic disciplines. Over 30 courses in Fine Arts, Design, Music, Sound Arts and Performing Arts as well as interdisciplinary formats invite you to take part. Registration is now open.

This year’s theme Territories and Interfaces centres around the city of Berlin as the venue, territory and object of artistic research. We will trace demarcation lines and boundaries in urban space, go in search of the spaces in between, and explore how we can create new spaces or (re)occupy those previously undescribed. Making spaces of the “in-between” visible and creating new accessibilities, we will seek out new possibilities to interact in and with urban space.  

You can find a small selection of our workshops and themes covered below. Discover all courses here.

How the in-between spaces that characterise the city can become the basis for artistic inquiry is explored in The new Berlin Threshold Atlas: throughout the workshop, various artistic strategies are used to dissect the city in order to playfully map and visualize the city’s open spaces. Similarly, Transitions—Drawing and Space confronts the city’s areas of transition through drawing as an open process.

Radiant Signs engages with visual communication in the city: what is being communicated through signs, symbols, and pictograms scattered around the city, and how? In response, participants develop their own sign systems through the means of screen printing. Berlin Poster—Experimental Image Making through Risography, too, centres on visual interfaces, taking an experimental approach to risograpy in order to translate urban sceneries into iconic expressions.

Berlin’s nature takes centre stage in Gardens and Extensions: understanding urban gardening as a socio-artistic practice, the course researches how different communities engage in practices of gardening in the city. The courses Drawing as a Way of Knowing—Plants and Drawing as a Way of Knowing—Insects aim to cultivate a deeper understanding of plants and insects through drawing and graphic work, thereby raising awareness for endangered species in the city and beyond.

Registration is now open on our website. Applications close four weeks before the start of each workshop. Visit here for detailed information on our programme and its workshops.
