Works from the past winter and summer semesters will be presented at the annual exhibition of the Department of Design at University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. The focus will also be on the results and experiences of the thematic semester #Democracy!

From artisanal design processes and the design of publications to the artistic staging of light in indoor and outdoor spaces, the exhibits show the wide range of design approaches. The students intensively explored topics such as the connection between nature and technology, the design of physical interfaces for electronic music and the use of photography as a tool. Through their experimental approaches and creative curiosity, they demonstrate their commitment to innovative design concepts and forward-looking ideas.
