KunstFestSpiele Campus

Sat 19.05. till Tue 22.05.

In order to develop an independent artistic practice, future graduates of cultural studies need exceptional aesthetic experiences of seeing and hearing, which they can barely gain within the four walls of a seminar room or studio.

For this reason we’re beginning a special project in 2018: the new KunstFestSpiele Campus. Fifty students from five universities and colleges in Lower Saxony come to Hanover to attend selected festival productions and enter into a critical debate with the programme.

Campus participants are the academics and artists of tomorrow: from Hanover, Lüneburg, Braunschweig and Hildesheim; from the areas of theatre studies, cultural studies, scenography, art, performance and composition. The involvement of lecturers from various disciplines in the workshops introduces the students to new perspectives and directs their attention beyond the margins of their own particular field.
Group attendance of performances, the seminars and exclusive discussions with artists create a shared space for intensive interchange and critical reflection as the basis for vital, socially relevant, artistic and cultural activity.
