The Laboratory

Panorama of the exhibition

Under the working title The Laboratory, the course Artistical/Experimental Design (fall semester 2017/2018) consolidated a series of diverting and aesthetical experiments exploring, questioning and augmenting the building blocks of design.

At the end of the semester, a book was created to showcase selected works. It is divided into seven chapters, one for each topic the students explored during the course. It was also used to document the exhibition at Dessau Design Schau 2018.

In the book’s creation process, I was in charge of creating the layout alongside Christian Kirchner, typesetting, and editing the photos of the selected artworks.

The course was led by Till Wiedeck and Nadine Goepfert.
