Workshop week in winter semester 2022/23 – Impressions

Julian Sirre was in our Printlab with his workshop "GRAPHIC DESIGN - I'm a big fan".

During the workshop week in the winter semester 2022/23 from 24.10. to 28.10.2022 students could again choose from numerous interdisciplinary projects:

  • 3D character animation
  • Film montage in interaction with the camera
  • Arduino – as Human Interface Device
  • Photo Workshop – A Zine: Research on Men and Masculinities
  • CONCEPT AND DESIGN – Utopia is not a promise, but a joint venture
  • GRAPHIC DESIGN – I’m a big fan
  • Hacking Frames – Feminist Worlding,
  • Me Myself and I – Autofiction

During the workshop week, the regular course of studies is interrupted, i.e. instead of the regular seminars, the students work, research and experiment in interdisciplinary projects and workshops of international guest lecturers who are invited for the workshop week.
