Bodies in Motion — Field Trip

Exkursion zum Projektmodul Master alle Fakultäten 2 SWS | 3 ECTS

Prof. Dr. Jasper Cepl,
Dr. Ulrike Kuch,
MA Louis Oehler

To see, to experience spaces, places and people that you wouldn't find in Weimar is the idea of this field trip. We are planning to spend three days in Berlin and one in Halle. We will meet fashion designers, artists, art critics and theorists, visit museums and a crematorium, and do many things more to enrich our experience about the body in architecture and design.

Beforehand, we will draw an image about the people and topics that we will encounter and prepare short presentations for the field trip. Our observations and experiences will be documented in photographs, objets trouvé and texts to form a digital diagram of our knowledge when our Berlin memories will slowly fade out.

The project is accompanied by a Projekt and a Semianr. Both courses provide students with further knowledge, in terms of inputs from experts in specific fields and and intense examination of the body in design discourses. Also from a content-related point of view we therefore recommend to sign up for the three courses.

We kindly ask interested students to apply by email until October 10, 2022. Please send a short notice with the course’s name, your name, student number, field of study and a very short sentence why you are interested in the course to Louis Oehler and Ulrike Kuch (louis.oehler[at] and ulrike.kuch[at] To ensure equal chances for all students only applications via email can be considered (not via Bison!).

You will get further information via Email.

The course will be conducted by Ulrike Kuch and Louis Oehler.

The course is part of a trias of courses that form a "Projektmodul":

  1. the Projekt Encasing Bodies — Critical Perspectives on the Body in Architecture (6 SWS/9 ECTS)
  2. the Seminar Multiple Bodies — Concepts of Corporeality in Architecture (4 SWS/6 ECTS)
  3. the Übung Bodies in Motion — Field Trip (2 SWS/3 ECTS)

You may select and combine the courses as needed, we recommend of course to choose the complete set. If you choose the Projekt, we highly recommend to choose the Seminar as well. Please contact your academic advisor to make sure that your combination of courses is recognised and prepare the learning agreement. You may find further information on the Bauhaus.Modul-webpage.
