Rundgang 11 – Open Day at Berlin University of the Arts
In mid July, it will be time once again for Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) to open its doors for the Rundgang 11 – Open Day. Interested visitors can see our students’ creative work in studios, corridors and workshops and on rehearsal stages around the university’s various locations. This year the UdK Berlin – with its four colleges and Central Institute of Continuing Education, as well as the Inter-University Centre for Dance and the Jazz Institute Berlin –will again be presenting the full spectrum of the arts: fine art, design, fashion, architecture, experimental media design, stage design, visual communication, drama, music theatre, performances, dance, sound art and much more. Less well-known features also await our visitors, like the UdK bookshop, for which students develop a new design especially for the Rundgang each year.

Saturday July 16, 2011 @ 10.00am
Location/venue to be confirmed


This seminar is organized as a design workshop – from July 11 – July 16.

Our relationship to our surroundings is continuously reshaped and reconstructed through everyday life experiences in our urban surroundings.
You will engage with the city as a laboratory, employ playful interactions, extend your personal experience of the city, activate the urban fabric, and stimulate responses from others in public situations.

You will collaborate with students from RMIT University in Melbourne. They will come from Melbourne to Berlin for a week as part of their travel studio.
Together we will explore various strategies how to engage with a city and its inhabitants through realtime experiments.

In teams we will engage with public space in real sense and time. One could describe it as ‘active‘ design at scale 1:1 or ‘action research’.
We will document and discuss your projects with others, including architects, philosophers, installation and performance artists.

We will show you your own city in different ways and test together with you how to look at Berlin with different eyes.
You will be the host for one of the RMIT students, allowing your guests an insight into the public spaces of your city and into your private interiors.
In exchange we will also invite you to stay with us in Melbourne whenever you like to come for a visit to Australia.
