These days, the browser window seems to replace the one in our apartments and gives us a view on the world. It has never been so important to stay connected to a transforming technical world. Also in universities being digitalized is more evident this semester than ever before. At the same time, new challenges are emerging for students as obstacles on the path of graduating Bachelor and Master students are showing up. A topic, which is dealt with at the digital exhibition launched on October 16th for the subject area of design for the Hochschule Düsseldorf, Peter Behrens School of Arts, where about 80 bachelor and master graduates studying Communication Design, New Craft Object Design, Retail Design, and Exhibition Design showcase their thesis works.
Instead of a physical tour through the building—where the student works are normally shown—this semester the Werkschau 2020—Peter Behrens School of Arts will be an online gallery where graduates of the four courses can introduce themselves and their work to virtual visitors. Each graduate has their own individual space in their individual form language to support the theme of their graduation work. The online gallery itself with an overall arrangement is according to a theme of Digital Overkillwhich can be explored on the exhibition website.
