Exhibiting Design – Exhibiting by means of Design

„Design ausstellen – Ausstellen durch Design“

The practical work of the discipline exhibition design is essentially based on experience values and trails. There is hardly any applied research found in this area, so only a few general recommendations or defined standards exists. Therefore the project aims on the development of a specific systematics for exhibiting design. For this the project uses methods and theoretical concepts of adjacent research areas: from theory of design, museology and empirical cultural sciences. The study will focus on the analysis of present design exhibitions in its cultural und economical contexts. With regard to the founding anniversary of the Bauhaus the results will be edited as guideline for exhibition design.
