Production design is a specific creative field in which the knowledge of a scenographer regarding the script and dramatic space is combined with the profession of architect and designer. This profession is always a part of the team of the film crew. This specialization Scenography is open to graduates with at least a Bachelor's degree in scenography, architecture, or interior design.

Programme objectives

The teaching of the field is based on the intersection of the arts, mainly performing and visual arts, humanities, and technology. It develops students' individual qualities and their orientation towards a specific area of scenographic/spatial creation. The MFA is a crucial stage in the formation of the artistic personality and is decisive for further professional development. An important quality is an ability to think, interpret, and create authoritatively in a space beyond professional stereotypes.
Pedagogical guidance is based on the student's ideas, initial ideas, and own solutions, helping them to develop and find further artistic possibilities for the project. We understand the pedagogical leadership of the master‘s degree program as a creative process. The pedagogue is above all an inspiring personality with an unquestionable artistic reputation, his/her creativity, and a capacity for theoretical reflection.
