Certified Program

The digital media revolution requires renewal for exhibition and museum spaces. One trend that Covid-19 is reinforcing is the need for alternative crossmedia spaces that appeal to new audiences. The postgraduate study program provides basic knowledge on exhibition development in connection with media theory and practice, especially with the most current strategies of participatory and convergent multimedia mediation. International experts such as Christiane PAUL, Dieter BOGNER, Wendy COONES, Florian WIENCEK, Enrique GUITART, Patricia MUNRO, Stefan IGLHAUT, Frank den OUDSTEN and Lev MANOVICH combine historical vision with the latest knowledge of current developments and trends.
