Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able todiscuss spatial design issues by analogy with artistic forms of expression and at the same time understand forms of spatial exhibition of art as part of a political consideration. They will be able to understand the critical potential of exhibiting in space as an artistic strategy and apply it to architectural strategies.

Subject of course

The central issue is the spatial handling of events and content in museum practice, which may also have been forgotten or repressed, and the critical examination of the accessibility and communication of art in relation to social and political contexts. Through historical research and its representation, the handling of events in exhibition practices will be explored that go beyond the object and problematic as well as less visible content will be made experienceable and put up for discussion. Starting with research tasks, findings will be discussed and compared. Research questions will be defined and then worked out in depth.
