Exhibition Structure - Structure in Exhibition

Structures of exhibitions emerge on different levels, including architecture, graphic-, spacial- and media-design plus planning and organisation. The workshop highlights various aspects of exhibition design, which interlock and presuppose each other. The spectrum of theses aspects range from conceptual preliminary considerations to details within design realisation, such as surface and materiality. The 3-day-workshop focusses on this framework, but also covers thematic exhibition visits including guided tours as well as practical tasks.
