Burg On Air – As Close As We Can Get

Welcome to »Burg On Air«. Daily streams featuring artist talks, design graduates, maker stories and a bit of music will get you closer to the people and projects from that favourite place on earth we call BURG.

This year’s exhibition brings together the art and design work of recent graduates featuring tangible products, augmented realities, fashion design, photography installations, textile arts and design, crafted jewellery and new ways of manufacturing reflecting the diversity of our art and design departments.

»Burg On Air« is a podcast programme developed to turn your virtual visit into a real auditory experience. During nine days, we broadcast from the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle, a place we call BURG. In times of social distancing probably as close as we can get.
