_On Folkwang LABs
The interdisciplinary Folkwang idea and the active, transdisciplinary exchange are fostered with particular emphasis in the Folkwang LABs. A Folkwang LAB has a theme of social relevance and features experimental and enquiring, artistic as well as practically applied aspects. It brings together teaching staff and students of different faculties as well as internal and external colleagues of various disciplines. The LABs are integral components of the study courses.
_On Folkwang projects
Experimenting, creating something, making use of and expanding their abilities…. this is what Folkwang students do in their semester projects on an intensive basis. These can be in the form of individual projects, projects in small or large groups, projects together with students of different faculties, projects with both internal and external partners. Under the supervision of a specialised subject teacher, students develop a work with a thematic focus over a longer period – up to a semester or even longer, which is then publicly presented.
