Dessau Design Schau is the annual open day and public exhibitions of the Dessau Department of Design, of which the MAID program is a part of. Hundreds of guests from the city of Dessau-Roßlau and beyond came into Seminarplatz near the Bauhaus to take a look into the latest student-made projects and works from the bachelor to the international master programs, ranging from graphic design to interactive design projects.
The exhibitions were made at Buildings 01, 03, 04, and the department’s rooms and labs at the Bauhaus buildings. An open tour to all workshops of the department was also available for the attendees to join, and prospective applicants came as well to have their works reviewed by our professors, in preparation for their formal application within the semester break.
Dessau Design Schau 2017
28 January 2017
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
On Saturday, 28.01.2017, the Dessau Department of Design of the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences will be hosting its annual “Dessau Design Schau” open day exhibition, featuring the semester and thesis projects of the BA, MA, and MA Integrated Design students, ranging from graphic design work such as posters, illustrations, photographs, and as well as products and interactive design media. This yearly event showcases the Dessau model of design education, which covers all design disciplines from visual communication, product design, and time-based media.
Three months, countless days and nights, and a day to present: nine teams presented their semester projects on the 26th of January at the foyer of Building 04 for the Studio class “air wind breath” by Profs. Uwe Gellert and Carmen Luippold. Their projects looked into the different aspects of the topic and its aesthetic, social, environmental, philosophical, political and/or economic dimensions, and explored the possibilities of solving current and future issues regarding our use of the air that we breathe and the space that we share.
On the first week of November (7-11 November 2016), the MAIDs and their German master counterparts participated in one of five Compact Week courses that brought them into the world of language labyrinths, visual storytelling, bookbinding, workshop design, and what it takes for a product to be “Made in Germany.”
Throughout the week students worked on their specific and general topics with the help of their lecturers, with the goal of experimenting the possibilities of design research, whether it’s about bridging cultures, playing with languages, or traveling throughout the country in search of German design.
Nine new students from across the world were welcomed by the MAID department at Building 4, Room 208. Present to greet them are this semester’s course professors and lecturers, and MAID students from the previous two semesters.
