Welcome to the Berlin Summer University of the Arts 2024!

Get inspired, develop your artistic practice further and make lasting connections in an international and transdisciplinary setting at UdK Berlin. From June to October, we offer a wide range of workshops in all artistic disciplines and beyond. Discover all courses here. Registration is open.

This year’s theme Territories and Interfaces will centre around the city of Berlin as the venue, territory and object of artistic research. We will trace demarcation lines and boundaries in urban space, go in search of the spaces in between, and explore how we can create new spaces or (re)occupy those previously undescribed. Making spaces of the 'in-between' visible and creating new accessibilities, we will seek out new possibilities to interact in and with urban space.

"For me, the Summer University was like a portal. There were people from all over the world, all coming together in one room with a lot of energy. Although the quality of the programme is high, it offers a safe enough space to explore and take risks, with great guides, in a great environment."

— Khira Jordan, poet, participated in several of our workshops in 2022.

Our Design

Let us introduce to you the winning design for the Berlin Summer University of the Arts 2024, created by Jonas Gerber! Jonas is studying at UdK Berlin in Prof. Fons Hickmann’s graphic design class, with whom we run an annual poster competition for the Summer University.

Jonas’ work is driven by a strong typographic interest and ranges from editorial design and printed matters to websites and type design. We had a chat with him about his design process and the inspiration behind it. Read the whole interview here.
