Previous editions of the Biennale, under the directorship of Daniel Ott and Manos Tsangaris, have featured discussion fora to accompany, reflect on and contextualize the festival. These have included symposia, lectures, talks, seminars, platforms and salons. In 2024, these events will again take place in the form of a campus aimed at students from a variety of disciplines.
As a festival of premieres, the Munich Biennale is continually in motion, forever seeking and accompanying change. In its latest edition, it aims specifically to explore contemporary forms of movement and transformation. By tracking shifts and transitions in society, in the family and in the bodies and brains of individuals, the Biennale acknowledges movement as a network of complex interdependencies; of social and geographical displacements composed of highways, one-way streets, dead ends, building sites and workshops. ‘On the way’ argues for the participation of music theatre in the emerging movement patterns of our present and immediate future.
Against this complex and exciting backdrop, interdisciplinary groups of students, academics and artists will experience and discuss the festival’s productions as part of the Biennale campus. The focus will be on attendance at performances followed by lively discussions between participants, lecturers, and Biennale artists. Creative and discursive contributions that are developed as part of the campus will be presented to a broader audience as part of the ‘Last Night of the Campus’.


On 3 June at 17:30 there will be a keynote speech by Mieke Bal as part of the Campus, the closing event “Last Night of the Campus” will take place on 7 June at 22:00.
Both events are open to all visitors to the Munich Biennale.
