The main goal of the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel is to promote art, design and spatial strategies via research and development projects as a focal point for work and intellectual debates. As the only art university in the State of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, Muthesius is not only a place to develop culturally relevant biographies, but with its project studies it is also a place of particular experimentation and realisation. To a certain extent, the profile of the Master’s programme represents study courses and development possibilities for students that are unique in the Federal Republic of Germany. Around 640 places are currently spread across the university courses in Fine Arts, Fine Arts for Secondary School Teachers, Spatial Strategies, Communication Design and Industrial Design.

“The focus of the Muthesius University lies in art and design, both creative and productive. Around this core revolves the fundamental interaction between theory and practice. This reciprocal relationship is a permanent process, a circular movement. It needs free space to move. Thus, the utmost condition for art and design at our university is freedom! Studying at Muthesius is based on the desire to use this freedom to mature into an equally creative and productive personality.” President Dr. Arne Zerbst.


Centrally located in downtown Kiel, spce | Muthesius represents a sounding board that picks up impulses from the university from all areas of creative, artistic and scientific research, strengthens them interactively and opens them up to a local and international audience.

spce | Muthesius creates a place that, in addition to its representative function, understands exhibiting as a process-based, researching practice and uses curatorial means to design aesthetic-sensual spaces for experience and thought for a collective social discourse.

spce | Muthesius constantly examines the question of how young artists and designers can present themselves and enter the public arena. What happens in this special moment, the act of exhibiting, of presenting?
