Welcome to Munich

Munich is the capital of Bavaria and site of seventh international and interdisciplinary symposium Art in Motion. The flair of this city combines state-of-the-art science and research with a large wealth of art and music and Munich's famous relaxed atmosphere ("Gemütlichkeit").
 
Our location is in the heart of the Maxvorstadt district, directly adjacent to the Königsplatz. Situated here are two of the buildings of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, direct in the middle of the cultural quarter of the city that encompasses the two Pinokotheken art museums. 

The entire program of talks, workshops, posters, concerts, and other presentations will be offered at the music university: Luisenstraße 37a and Arcisstraße 12. 

Art in Motion

In 2020, Rhythm! is the topic of the biannual international symposium Art in Motion. Previously, Art in Motion was held in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018 with the themes: "Musical and Athletic Motor Learning and Performance," "Memory, Expertise & Motor Planning," "Motor Skills, Motivation & Musical Practice,” “Performing Under Pressure,” “Training for Excellence,” and “Training for Creative Excellence.”
