Bachelor + Master Exhibition + Open House
»RE:« Bachelor + Master Exhibition
University of Applied Sciences Europe | Campus Berlin & Hamburg
The students and graduates of the University of Applied Sciences Europe’s faculty of Art + Design on Campus Berlin and Campus Hamburg are presenting their annual and final projects at the RE: Bachelor + Master Exhibition. The works show the multidisciplinary character of the study programs. A side program including a vernissage, guided tours and an Open House Day completes the exhibition.
Between July 27 and 29, 2018, undergraduates studying Photography, Media Spaces, Communications Design, Illustration, Game Design, and Film & Motion Design, and graduates from the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees courses from the Art & Design Department of the University of Applied Sciences Europe, Berlin Campus, extend the invitation to tour and visit their Bachelor’s and Master’s Exhibition. The exhibition in Berlin begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, July 27, 2018 with a public opening ceremony.
Under the theme “RE:” the undergraduates and Bachelor’s and Master’s degree graduates of the Art & Design Department of the Berlin Campus at the University of Applied Sciences Europe are exhibiting their end-of-year and thesis projects. RE: bids farewell to the past and sets its sight on what is to come. It calls attention to the transition from studying to starting out on a career: RE: Metamorphosis.
Bachelor’s and Master’s Exhibition highlights
The bachelor project “Astralis” by Leif Kardelke, 7th semester Film + Motion Design, takes an approach that is critical of the media and grapples with the issue of high-gloss aesthetics and gigantism in commercials, parodying spectacular brand showcasing with a fictitious advertising trailer. In this surreal trailer, following Audi and Red Bull’s “Mission to the Moon”, a brand advertisement planned for 2019, a new strategic ad is staged in Saturn’s asteroid belt: Spread your wings.
In the photo series “Sole Harlem“, Louise Amelie and Aljaz Fuis, both 7th semester Photography students, present medium format portraits and landscapes from New York’s Harlem district. Their shots offer a contemporary view of an urban district with significance to American history that continues to preserve its own identity, unimpressed by the gentrification of other city neighborhoods. Quotes from the life and experiences of the inhabitants portrayed in Harlem illustrate both continuity and change.
Guided Tour highlights
Wahel Chabou is on the run, fleeing from war, death and destruction. To avoid being forced into the Syrian civil war he has left behind his country and family. Having arrived in Hochstetten near Karlsruhe, he hopes for better times and a return. Fear and despair induce him to write a poem each day to somehow counter this disaster. His German classes and Google Translate result in imperfect but nonetheless striking language which might be described as the “poetry of immigration“. This poetry has been creatively interpreted by undergraduates in the second semester of Communication Design, in collaboration with their professor, Daniel Bastian. What has emerged is an 80-page book printed in the print workshop on the Berlin campus of the University of Applied Sciences Europe using classic analog printing processes.
“RE / VOLVE” follows the contemporary phenomenon of continuous brainstorming and the increasingly short cycles of development in the digital age. In the Media Spaces course, video mapping, generative animation and dynamic light and sound have been combined in an installation which, after being present at the TOA Festival, is demonstrated during the tour. In this installation the undergraduates visualize the spatial representation of sounds while the public is invited to participate actively.
