This year’s Universität der Kunste (UdK) Rundgang is something that is not to be missed. For those unfamiliar with this event, the UdK – Berlin’s top arts university, and one of the best in all of Europe – brings together all of its art students in one massive exhibition once a year. A time to celebrate work achieved and reflect on the fruits of the past year… or really, a time to drop everything, exhibit your work and yourself, and party til the first lights of dawn. The Rundgang 2012’s opening party on Thursday night was the place to be in Berlin – thousands of people wandering the halls of the multiple university buildings; tons of wine, beer, mexicana shots; homemade schnitzel; music and dancing… and of course the freshest and most varied collection of artwork in Berlin. Take a look at our photo journal of the event for some highlights of the evening, and make sure to stop by the UdK while the Rundgang is still on until Sunday evening (July 15th).
