Exhibition Design: 100 Prozent Wolle

The exhibition opens up its theme – wool – to visitors of all ages. They have the opportunity to encounter and interact with the wool on a playful, sensual, intellectual or nostalgic level. There are spaces of encounter in every room, which are designed to encourage shared, active experience and exchange between generations. At the same time, visitors can deepen their knowledge of various related topics. These include the life of the shepherd and relationships with the animals; the production of wool; the transformation of raw wool into yarn; and the process of knitting, from stitches all the way up to the finished product. The visitor can try out everything — either with or without guidance.

In addition to a sculpture of a sheep that visitors can climb, highlights include a shepherd’s clothing and gear, a clothing rail that tells stories, and a flying carpet.

Substanz! Bauhaus Festival Dessau

Colourful! Material Illusion.

For its 20th anniversary, the Bauhaus Festival brings the colourful nature of things into surprising focus. Put in the spotlight and set in motion as players on a stage, they find complete expression in front of us: architecture becomes audible, material becomes dance, walls become permeable, junk becomes music and people, material. In ‘play-spaces’ and productions the annual theme of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, ‘Substance’, is realised from a fresh perspective. The Bauhaus Festival thus forms a Gesamtkunstwerk from two evenings of contemporary interpretations of artistry, theatre, music, installation and performance.

In interdisciplinary teams, under the guidance of the lecturers Claudia Rohner and Franziska Ritter, our students have developed and realized eight scenographic projects for this festival. Entirely in the spirit of Oskar Schlemmer, the performance series ‘Substantia – das Licht greifen’ (Substantia – grasp the light) enables the students to experiment with the material and to create illusions in the space between humankind and material. The productions came about in collaboration with the Initiative Neuer Zirkus e.V., the postgraduate course Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum at the Technical University of Berlin and the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT).

Il mondo della luna

“Warum der Blick durch das Fernrohr? Ist es, den Mond ganz nah zu Euch zu bringen oder Euch weit weg von der Erde? Würdet Ihr es ertragen, das Auge zu lösen vom Horizont und hinab zu schauen auf Eure Schuhe? Sicher besitzt Ihr welche, warm und fest, sonst hätte die Kälte längst Euren Blick gesenkt. Entschuldigt, ich weiß, Ihr seht nun einmal gerne nach vorne oder nach oben, das ist halt so. Nichts zu machen.”

Students of TU Berlin Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum cooperated with students of directing of Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler under the guidance of tutor Stefan Wiel to work on excerpts of the opera ‘Il Mondo della Luna’ (Joseph Haydn). The shows are staged on june 1st and 2nd 2017 and on july 7th and 8th 2017 and will be performed by students of singing, coaching and orchestra conduction of HfM Hanns Eisler.

Dialog Extrem 25.4.

“Dialog Extrem” is an unconventional kind of discussion. 40 experts sit at 40 tables and want to chat – with you! This year’s topic: fear.

Tuesday, 25th April 2017, 18:3o until 21:30.
Lichthof – TU Berlin Hauptgebäude, Straße des 17. Juni 135


Fear has many faces – separation anxiety, fear of the future, fear for health and phobia. We are all shaped by the menace of terrorism, extremist character and national crises and it seems as if the feeling of fear takes a new social dimension. At the same time personal senses of security are not linked to facts. Besides,  subjective senses of security deal only little with the facts. What is fear? Is fear changing our view towards society and life in the city? What is the influence of fear in architecture? How do we handle fear? What is the responsibility of media? What is the use of facts when the apparent truth is convincing you more? How many restrictions does democracy tolerate? How much security is needed for a state? What is keeping our society together?

Dialog Extrem 2017 invites you to talk about reasons and effects of the actual tendencies of fear. The event aims to describe the subjects complexity and at the same time to support a sensible and exciting analysis. The audiences can book conversations with experts to different topics about fear. Each conversation lasts 25 minutes. But you have to be careful! There are not a lot of tickets and everybody is listening! The ones who missed buying a ticket for a confidental chat in person with one of the experts, have the chance to listen to the broadcasted talks by headphones on eight different audio-channels. Further information at the Dialog Extrem website and in the last year’s audio-archive.

Our students Paulina Barreiro, Jakob Blazejczak, Francesca Ercoli, Maike Häber, Lukas Kesler and Janina Sieber developed a space for the dialogue on fear.

Supervised by Prof. Kerstin Laube, in cooperation with the faculty of Urban Planning and Development, Prof. Jörg Stollmann/Johannes Dumpe and students of architecture, urban planning and sociology.

Goldberg – Architect of Knowledge

We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening of our latest project realisation with our cooperation partner Technische Sammlungen Dresden:

“Emanuel Goldberg – Architect of Knowledge”
Vernissage: friday, march 10th 2017, 7pm
with a welcoming speech by Prof. Albert Lang, TU Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum and others
Technische Sammlungen Dresden, Junghansstraße 1-3, 01277 Dresden
Exhibition: march 11th – september 24th 2017

“A chemist by learning, a physicist by calling and a mechanic by birth” – that is how Emanuel Goldberg (Moscow 1881 – 1970 Tel Aviv) described the poles of his varied scientific and entrepreneurial activities in almost all fields of image technology. In Leipzig and Berlin, he explored the basics of photography. In Dresden, he developed novel cameras and apparatuses for the knowledge management of the future. After his violent expulsion from National Socialist Germany, he founded one of Israel’s first technology companies in Tel Aviv.

The exhibition focuses on Emanuel Goldberg’s estate that his family recently gave to the Technische Sammlungen Dresden. The photographs and instruments, writings and drawings, and the remains of Goldberg’s private experimental workshop form the starting point of a search for traces in the prehistory of our information society.

In this exhibition, photographers and filmmakers, artists and engineers, scenographers and students from Berlin and Leipzig present the results of their artistic and experimental
engagement with the ideas and the life of Emanuel Goldberg. Alongside the originals from Goldberg’s estate, photo and film installations, replicas of his perception experiments,
and models of his knowledge machine are on view and can partially be tested.

Komme was Wolle

“Komme was Wolle” is the working title of a special exhibition wih the topic of wool at the Museum Europäischer Kulturen – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Museum for European Cultures, MEK), that will be designed and realized in cooperation with our study course Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum.

Under the guidance of tutor Johann Jörg third semester’s students developed spatial concepts that on the one hand are dedicated to the topic’s specific historical, cultural and social aspects, and also discuss future topics such as the efficient use of ressources in the textile industry.
The main challenge the students have to face is to combine the classic conveying of information, the use of storytelling and the creation of a tangible experience for all generations in one scenographic concept.

Finally, the concept of Margaret Schlenkrich convinced the jury and will be realised in the upcoming summer semester. The exhibition opening at MEK in Berlin-Dahlem is scheduled for fall 2017.

music theatre: Rosenkavalier

The scent of pheromones and testosterone in the room was too strong to break through the persian rose oil’s frangrance. The air was stuffy. The clock did it’s rounds. Everybody in the room was trying hard not to look. The din of many voices echoed in the hallway. Right in the traditional rose delivery the postillon d’amour Octavian falls in love with Sophie: an arms dealer and nouveau riche’s daughter, who is already promised to baron Ochs. But times have changed. The Marschallin knows everything. If she could only let go of Octavian and the past…
