International Festivalcampus / Summer School

Research and Experience

While students from Dortmund, Amsterdam, or Tel Aviv held depth discussions with festival artists such as Romeo Castellucci, Jérôme Bel, or Helmuth Lachenmann and at the same time prepared an archive for “atmospheres,” upcoming artists from Essen, Krakow, or Shanghai created installations for Bochum’s city center and then discussed Rimini Protokoll’s Situation Rooms until deep in the night. Since 2012, Festivalcampus has been inviting upcoming artists and students from all across Europe and beyond to Ruhrtriennale. To date, over 350 students from 24 art and theater schools from around the world have left behind their standard academic training context, introducing their artistic and discursive competence in discussions and project work on site as part of the Festivalcampus program. In the inspiring atmosphere of the festival, they can collect visual experiences, speak about what they have experienced, develop their own sketches, and exchange ideas across disciplinary boundaries.
