Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to situate the art of installation in historical and current practice and understand its role in the development of the exhibition as an increasingly autonomous (art) form. They will be able to conceptually differentiate and precisely reflect the artistic and curatorial goals of spatial interventions in the museum as well as in urban space.

Subject of course

Historical and contemporary exhibitions in the field of tension between private and public exhibition formats will be analysed and contrasted, with a special focus on interventions in space. The historical investigation of the installation leads to a discussion of the changes it has brought about in the exhibition space and the associated museum typologies beyond collection formats. The precise knowledge of the exhibition history in relation to the space serves as a tool for dealing with questions of architectural typology.
