Information for exhibitors

Dear exhibitors,

The annual summaery2021 exhibition will be predominantly digital. Exhibitions in the rooms and on the grounds of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, project presentations and events will also take place online this year. Therefore, use the possibilities of virtual communication and present your work digitally. Shoot a video, create an image gallery, a podcast or a radio programme, create a virtual showroom, use interactive maps, live streams or chats, and much more. 

For many students, the annual summaery exhibition is the conclusion of their project or even their final thesis, and is included in the evaluation of their studies. At the same time, it is a unique opportunity for students to present themselves to the world and open up to a broad audience. Therefore, students are encouraged to consider how to reach summaery2021 visitors with your topic. 

To be successful, please consider the following technical and organisational aspects:

- Copyright and rights of use for text, image and sound documents

For exhibition projects that are not presented virtually, the current safety and hygiene regulations applicable on site must be observed within the framework of the Corona regulations. A summary for Weimar and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar can be found on our website on Corona prevention.
