Presenting recent works and new productions from fifteen international artists and designers the themed exhibition “Beyond Gestaltung” investigates in the current interrelationship of art and design. It is being put on show in a city, which, with the foundation of a School of Design (1907) and with its links to industry, has traditionally been strongly influenced by the applied arts. Projects which shed light on the artistic development and the social significance of design form the centre of the exhibition.
