During their studies, the students of Fachhochschule Dortmund design faculty regularly travels for workshops in different countries to expand their knowledge. Every two years the results of their experiences forms an exhibition. We were given the task to curate, design, organise and promote this exhibition.
The original inspiration of the concept comes from our visit to the architecture biennial 2016 in Venice with Prof. Oliver Langbein and Prof. Lars Harmsen. The biennial was themed with the title ‘Reporting from the Front’ which is inspired by the archeologist Maria Reiche. While she was studying the Nazca lines in south America she was carrying a ladder with her to have a better view while not destroying anything. This tiresome and creative approach for her work was the core inspiration for the curators.
Therefore we also created this exhibition as reporting about students whom has gone great lengths to change their perspectives on design. The Student Report, Strep.
