HfG Ulm: Exhibition Fever
How and where did the HfG communicate its innovative understanding of Design?
What did the ideal exhibition look like?
What possibilities and also limits determined the exhibition design?
And which HfG ideas are still relevant today?
The exhibition “HfG Ulm: Exhibition Fever” offers a new view of the Ulm School of Design (HfG ) in an international context. For the first time, the focus is on the HfG’s exhibitions, which contributed to the worldwide significance of the schools’s design and teaching concepts. Previously unpublished texts and historical material – from exhibition stands and objects to photographs – are presented to visitors in the exhibition.
The exhibition is part of the four-year research project “Design Exhibiting. On the visibility of the HfG Ulm”, which is being carried out by the HfG-Archiv Ulm, the Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences and the Folkwang University of the Arts Essen. The Volkswagen Foundation has been funding the project since April 2017.
The exhibition is curated by Viktoria Lea Heinrich (HfG-Archiv Ulm), together with Christopher Haaf and Linus Rapp.
