Workshop week in summer semester 2023 – Impressions

The workshop "Fashion as a Collective Practice" by lecturer Anouk Beckers exhibited in the library.

The exhibition and presentation at the end of the workshop week in the summer semester 2023 was once again super! Two courses presented themselves in our library, then we went on to the auditorium for the presentation of the other results.
