Köln International School of Design of TH Köln implemented a photo project with Photoszene and the media partner Ströer last year. Students of Prof. Iris Utikal and Prof. Michael Gais examined advertising in public spaces and its architectural, social, cultural and political impact in independent photographic works. Some of the students’ series will be on display in public spaces during the Photoszene Festival 2021 (opening on 21st of May) on Ströer’s digital advertising media, as well as on the outer facade of KISD, Ubierring 40.
