COME LEARN ABOUT THE COURSE!

Berlin: The Fall + Rise of an Art City is a course designed to give students access to some of the most engaging art world experiences the city has to offer. Student travelers will come away from the course with a greater awareness of the rich history of this dynamic city as well as a deeper understanding of the inner-workings of the contemporary art world.

The course will provide creative and intellectual inspiration for its participants through tailored experiences in the Berlin art scene, the most important art city in Europe. Participants will be led on a day-long city walk, In Search of the Miraculous, in which seven artist-guides share their unique vantage points on the city they live and make work in. Students will experience the vitality of Berlin through multiple artist’s studio visits, meetings with art gallery owners, a project space tour, a hands-on collage work-shop, three tours of private art collections, visits to the 10th Berlin Biennale, optional visits to contemporary art spaces and museums like KunstWerke, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlinische Galerie and others.

Through shared meals and daily excursions in the city, the course creates a community among travelers. A typical day starts with a meet-up over breakfast for a “check-in”, review of any readings, a brief period allotted for updating blogs or sketchbooks, then out the door for the art adventure of the day. Following the daily excursion, students will spend the remainder of the day exploring and discovering the city on their own or with the group
