Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the relationship between art and architecture from a historical and contemporary perspective. They can distinguish between the specific roles of artists and curators in the production of exhibitions and understand the design potential of display strategies as part of architectural practice beyond the exhibition.

Subject of course

A basis for discussion and work will be created by analysing artistic interventions and understanding the artistic perception and artistic handling of spaces of different scales, from private space to the museum to the city and the landscape. Building on this, the central role of space in contemporary art production will be examined and the development of curatorial practices in the field of tension between art and architecture will be worked out by means of concrete examples. The key role of spatial and political contextualisation as well as the interaction and mutual influence of artistic and architectural working methods will be made more concrete in exercises.
