The BA in Scenography explores and reveals the interdependence of architecture and theatre towards a broad understanding of the field, while emphasizing both practical, experimental, as well as theoretical approaches. Students develop scenic design projects, create and engage in spatial dialogues on stage, in museums, in the public space within the city or in nature. They reflect upon and substantiate ways to discuss, investigate and activate current themes, developments and potentials within society and distinct communities. An international faculty supports the students to identify and probe their own approaches, methods and skills to the wide field of scenography.

Next admission for BA in Scenography (August 2025-June 2028) will be early 2025. More information will be published when the deadline approaches.
