HFBK Hamburg: Sophia Prinz ist Gastprofessor...

Sophia Prinz ist Gastprofessorin an der Universität der Künste Berlin für Theorie der Gestaltung/Gender Studies. In ihrem Vortrag "Die Anmutung von Bedeutung“ anlässlich des Grafikdesign-Symposium "Point of No Return: Born in the Echoes" wird sie der Frage nachgehen, inwiefern Plakate und Schrift mit Unlesbarkeit arbeiten und wo die Grenze zwischen neoliberaler Differenzökonomie und dem Nicht-Identischen liegt.

Die Symposiumsreihe wurde konzipiert von Ingo Ferdinand Offermanns, Professor an der HFBK Hamburg, mit Unterstützung von Markus Dreßen, Professor an der Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst / Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig und Markus Weisbeck, Professor an der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.

Teaching Art Online at the HFBK

HFBK Graduate Survey

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.

Annual Exhibition 2020 at the HFBK

The HFBK’s traditional annual exhibition („Jahresausstellung“) opens in February every year. For three days the students – from first-years to post-graduates – present a broad spectrum of their current work and projects from all the different departments. All classrooms, studios and halls in the building are used. Interested visitors are cordially invited to gain an impression of the art currently being created at the HFBK.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them. Therefore, it sees itself as critical of society – and at the same time optimizes the existing. So what is the political dimension of Social Design – is it a motor for change or does it contribute to stabilizing and normalizing existing injustices?
