UdK Shop – a good idea!

Our Story:


Back in the year 2000, the idea of creating a place where the results of study projects can not only be exhibited but also sold has been circulating at the former institution of the UdK, the HdK. As part of a semester project, professors, students and the university management had developed a concept for the "HdK-Shop", which was to serve as an interface between the university and the public. A first step in this direction was the digital "online shop", which was presented at the Open Days 2000 event.

The next step followed one year later, at the Open Days 2001, by installing a physical HdK-Shop which later became the UdK Shop. Due to the great interest and the positive response, the shop was installed for the OPen Days 2002 after the renaming of the institution to Berlin University of the Arts. And so the UdK shop finally got its original place at our current location.

This is our starting point for our mission for our ever changing university shop, which lives on creativity in all its upheavals, shapes and manifestations.
