For the fourth time, the Performing Arts Festival Berlin (PAF) will present theatre and performance, puppet and music theatre, dance, installations, new circus as well as site-specific performances on stages and at unusual locations throughout the city over six days. The PAF Campus will take place for the first time in 2019: Our students, among students from various Berlin universities and faculties are invited to discover the festival, its programme and the various venues in a specific campus programme and joint theatre visits with each other and for themselves.
The planning of a museum, an exhibition or a heritage site requires multidisciplinary thinking and an approach that incorporates both spatial and time based qualities. Highlighting projects by the studio Duncan McCauley the presentation will give an insight into thoughts regarding narrative, sequential space and participation towards a meaningful and rewarding visitor experience. The projects presented will include among others the new visitor experience at Vischering Castle near Muenster in Germany and the exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story at Kensington Palace, London.

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.

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).

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.

“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.
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.

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
Place: 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.

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…

Cordial invitation to
WINTERREISE – song cycle Franz Schubert
Andrea Chudak (soprano) and Lidiya Naumova (guitar)
Tuesday, 10th January, 7.30 p.m.
Location: Studio 484 (Entrance H, 4th floor, left), TU Berlin
Master’s Program Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum, Ackerstrasse 76, 13355 Berlin
The artists Andrea Chudak (soprano) and Lidiya Naumova (guitar) will present Franz Schubert’s “Winterreise op. 89″ in an unusual orchestration. This song cycle comprises 24 songs, which Schubert composed in the autumn of 1827, a year before his death. The concert is part of the scenography project “Fremd bin ich eingezogen, fremd zieh ich wieder aus”. Lecturer Claudia Rohner embarks with her students on a journey towards Elfriede Jelinek’s „Winterreise“. Based on Franz Schubert’s song cycle, Jelinek’s journey leads her from the current state of our world back to individual events in her own biography. Feeling alienated by the world and her own life, she writes in a polyphonic stream of associations about loss, transience, alienation and loneliness. The result is a very personal piece of work, the starting point for the students exploration of “alienation”.
