In a collaboration with FH Dortmund, KISD students will on Friday, October 18, at Künstlerhaus Dortmund exhibit their projects on the topic “Print is not dead/The post-digital condition”. The core questions of this project were: How does design look in times of the gig economy, template culture, scripted layouts, and the standardized interaction and aesthetics of the responsive web? What is the design potential of last year’s tools and devices we already have forgotten? How can we show work and projects while our audience is immersed in their own smartphones?
With the medium of “fax” as starting point for the analysis, a group of KISD students joined forces with the Editorial Design master program at FH Dortmund in order to explore how the post-digital is affecting design. Communicating through a medium that today is almost dead, both group exchanged faxes while working on projects that explore the relationship of digital, material, social and cultural systems and mixed realities. The resulting experimental works include publications as well as spatial and interactive installations.
These positions will be exhibited as part of a group show at Künstlerhaus Dortmund, together with other works from FH Dortmund’s Editorial Design program.
Opening: Friday, Oct. 18, 6pm
Open: October 19/20, 12-6pm.
