Figure Drawing

Figure Drawing

TU Berlin has switched to digital teaching until further notice. Therefore the start of the course Figure Drawing will be postponed. However, we are happy to put interested parties for the guest course on a waiting list. As soon as we receive information that the teaching will be switched back to classroom teaching, you will be notified of the newly planned dates.

An intensive program to inspire the ability to draw on the themes of nudes and figures in relation to space. The content of the course consists of working with the nude and the clothed model. Under accompanying anatomy and proportion theory linear drawing, silhouette analysis and the cubic construction of the human body are trained in different time intervals. This will strengthen the students’ confidence and speed in the development of figurations, even from free imagination.

Lecturer: Michael Hegewald
Target group: all interested parties (previous drawing knowledge desired, but not mandatory)
Number of participants: 16 guest seats (total number of participants: max. 20)
Registration: until 7 October 2019 at, Tel.: 030-314 72-174

Architektur der 80er Jahre – Begreifbar für Alle

Architektur der 80er Jahre – Begreifbar für Alle

Model building seminar for TU students of architecture and spatial studies.
On the occasion of the exhibition “Architecture of the 80s” in the Berlinische Galerie (autumn 2020), models and objects in the sense of “Design for all” are to be developed and implemented in a 2-week seminar.

The objects are intended to make the formal language and design principles of the architecture of the 80s accessible to visitors in a didactic and playful way.

Period: expected from 22nd June – 3rd Juli 2020, daily 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Tutors: Annette Müller & Robert Niemann
Registration deadline: till 13.02.2020 by e-mail to:
Credits: Optional subject: model construction 6 ECTS
Location: TU Berlin (at the course of studies Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum), Ackerstrasse 76, 13355 Berlin, Germany

The model as a means of communication
Modell+Design offers students the opportunity to deal in-depth with model design and its implementation. Ideas become visible on the basis of models: design and craftsmanship, theory and practice are worked on together. The models take up a clear creative position and communicate what has been thought of both within and outside the discipline. Questions about abstraction, reduction, materiality, materiality, construction and technical implementation are always answered on the model.

Life Drawing

Life Drawing

An intensive program to stimulate students’ drawing skills on the subject of nude and figure in relation to space. The content of the course consists in working with the act and the clothed model. Accompanying anatomy and proportion theory trains linear drawing, silhouette analysis and the cubic structure of the human body at different time intervals. This will strengthen the students’ safety and speed in the process of figuration, even from the free imagination.

I land / Island – Master’s exhibition 2017

We warmly invite you to our annual Master’s exhibition!
An archipelago of creative projects. Visionary worlds adrift in a roiling ocean of cardboard and crepe.

The postgraduate course Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum at the Technical University of Berlin combines two different modes of thinking about dramaturgical space design. Students explore both stage design for plays, musical theater, and dance, as well as scenographic space design for exhibitions, installations, events, and performance. Throughout this two-year course, 19 students have been hard at work on a colorful array of artistic and practical projects.

Ahoy, land ho!

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.

Filling the void

How to deal with the empty space was the key issue in this winter term’s scenography assignment with tutor Charlotte Tamschick. Eleven students of the first semester were assigned in teams to develop spatial strategies, models and texts for the briefing ‘Filling the void’ in correspondance to three different topics of either ‘object and light’, ‘object and moving images’ or ‘sound and light’. They were asked to evaluate different scenographic tools to find out how to transform and how to fill a space.

Participating students:  Paulina Barreiro, Jakob Blazejczak, Anne-Laure de la Fuente, Anja  Dietz, Nadja Sofie Eller, Mona Glaß, Maike Häber, Lukas Kesler, Takaya Kobayashi, Janina Sieber, Victor Treushchenko-Bernhardt

Workshop “space in between” for external guests

Up to four external guest will get the chance to participate in the experimental drawing workshop “space in between” with Dutch artist Silvia Russel.

“As stage designer one can focus on objects and persons to describe a world or a certain situation. However one could also focus on the relations between people and people and objects, to characterize the world. We could describe this as ‘the world of relations in between”. Several writers such as Hannah Arendt state that these relations define our world. In this workshop we will focus on the space and relations in between things and the importance of our own personal perspective. We find inspiration in street life, architecture, literature and different art forms.”

Time: 26th to 28th april 2016, 10-6 pm
Applications until 18th april 2016 with short CV and some drawings in a PDF (circa 3–5 pages) to Salka Schulz
Course Fee: 90 euro (not included: material costs)
Target group: students of similar fields and like-minded individuals, interested stage designers, scenographers, architects, designer, costume designer, artists and creative people!
Place: studio 484 of the study course

Number of participants: 10-12 people in total, including up to four guests
The workshop will take place in english.

A confirmation of participation and 3 ECTS can be issued.

Seminar on Spacial Theory

Seminar on Spacial Theory

In this seminar we will critically assess our current understanding of space in accordance with relevant theoretical core texts, research and publications and in relation to recent realisations. Our aim is to give students and guests an overview of existing theories, to help put them in context and encourage debate. The seminar can be seen as an introduction to the scientific work methods required throughout the degree course. Students are invited to regard their own approaches in a theoretic context and decide which concepts are relevant to their own work.

Guests are welcome!

Tutor: Prof. Albert Lang
