Design Department – Update 5

10.03.17 until further notice

Opening LuForm 5: Thu 22.02.2018, 7 pm

“Art makes originals. Design series. […] Design is focused on the feasible. Art is utopia. Design must be tangible and understandable. Not art […]”, so the typographer and designer Kurt Weidemann described the difference between art and design. In the Ludwig Forum we show both: art and design!

The Department of Form and Design, which was opened in March 2017 at the Ludwig Forum, has grown and grown over the last few months… Starting with innovative design objects from the region, the focus has increasingly shifted to universities of applied sciences for design, so that a fascinating spectrum of ideas, materials and application options is now on display. In accordance with the dynamics of the exhibition, which is designed as a “blog roll”, the first objects fall down “behind” and are replaced by new ones. We have invited young designers from Aachen, Dortmund, Offenbach and Karlsruhe to present their objects, clothing, furniture and jewelry. So look forward to the next update with us!

In cooperation with and curated by designmetropole Aachen, Design Department/FH Aachen and Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst Aachen.
Supported by Region Aachen and Mathes
