Centrally located in downtown Kiel, spce represents a sounding board that picks up on impulses from the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design from all areas of creative, artistic and scientific research, strengthening them interactively and opening them up to a local and (inter)national audience.

spce creates a place that, in addition to its representative function, understands exhibiting as a process-based, researching practice, using curatorial means to design aesthetic-sensual spaces for experience and thought for a collective social discourse.

Based on the faculty subjects of art, art education, communication design, industrial design and spatial strategies/scenography, spce examines the question of how young artists and designers can present their work and enter the public arena.

What happens in this special moment, the act of exhibiting, of presenting?
