This year, we celebrate the (un)controllable behaviour of materials in the process of making. Burg graduates and students have been capturing and mastering various materials such as porcelain, foam, glass, ceramics, soil – even the immateriality of air and sound. With a wide range of projects we share our thoughts and practices of “Mastering the Material” which has been taking place in the laboratories and workshops of our university. As well as exhibiting inspiring products, objects and dynamic installations, we invite visitors to take part in the daily activities in our on-site workshop in the Veem building.

Organized by Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle
The Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle, founded in 1915 and today with one thousand enrolled students from all over the world, offers with over 20 different study courses in art and design a wide range of artistic and theoretical teaching. This is provided by broadly based training in the fundamentals of both theory and practice in conjunction with well-equipped laboratories and workshops. As befits both art and design, students are given a significant degree of freedom and are encouraged to follow their own individual paths. Wide cooperation with institutions and companies as well as an interdisciplinary dialogue nurture visionary thinking and design alongside the development of practical career skills.
