The Masterclass Artistic Research GLOBE PLAYHOUSE – EXPANDED ANIMATION WORLDS is an invitation to Master and PhD students to further develop their own immersive 360° concepts and narratives in collaboration with Prof. Frank Geßner and a team of experts* to test them in a model.

Target group

For our Summer School, we are looking for M.A. and PhD students from the disciplines of screenwriting/dramaturgy, installation art, painting, model design, set design, video, VR, and drawing whose activities in the field of creative research enable them actively contribute to the project. Travel and accommodation expenses will be subsidized for international participants.

Course aim

The main focus is on concrete designs for animation concepts in a dialogue between art, science and technology using methods such as Animating Knowledge, Experimental Documentary or Expanded Animation Cinema. The image as a medium of socio-cultural identity will be discussed in the context of "local" and "global" as concepts. Its design potential in the context of a "worknet" or "action net" will be questioned. According to thematic foci that are defined beforehand in the workshop phases (e.g. private space, public space, social space, reflection, projection, knowledge and experience etc.) corresponding concepts and prototypes for VR, MR, and AR will be designed. The topics of the Action Plan 2030 are to be a thematic point of orientation.
