Semester Opening 2021
Questions surrounding study at the HFBK are taken as the theme for the traditional event marking the semester opening. The focus is on welcoming new members to the HFBK and saying farewell to colleagues who are retiring. Every year, all first-years, students, teaching staff, members of the Hochschulrat (University council) and many guests from the city are invited to the celebration.
This year's semester opening will take place on October 14, 2021, starting at 4 pm, accompanied by a guest lecture by ruangrupa, the artistic director group of documenta fifteen. In addition, we look forward to the subsequent opening of the Last Lecture Show by Prof. Werner Büttner at the Hamburger Kunsthalle starting at 7 pm. The opening of the semester will be broadcast live here.
Please note: At the entrance we will check the 3G status, please be there early for this. During the event, all guests must wear medical masks.
