Prof. Martin Rennert was elected President of the Berlin University of the Arts in 2006.
Located in the heart of Europe, UdK Berlin has always defended the freedom and intrinsic value of the arts and of arts education, not just since the fall of the Berlin Wall and German reunification.
President Rennert’s article on the dangers of fear and fearmongering appeared in the “Rundgang” supplement of the German daily newspaper Der Tagesspiegel in July 2016 and as a contribution to the "A Soul for Europe" pre-conference debate.
This annual event aims to lay the foundations for understanding and friendship between the people of China and the people of Germany through the mediums of art and culture. Art’s nonverbal forms of expression are especially well suited to building bridges between peoples.
President Rennert’s article on education in the arts appeared in the “Rundgang” supplement of the German daily newspaper Der Tagesspiegel in July 2014.
