Last Friday, 12 July 2019, the summer tour and bachelor exhibition of the Art & Design Department of the University of Applied Sciences Europe (UE) took place at Hamburg campus.
The exhibition was preceded by the ceremonial presentation of the final certificates. Prof. Heike Ollertz, Dean of the Art & Design Department, opened the ceremony with a short speech, followed by a speech by Christian Meyer zu Ermgassen and two graduates.
This semester, the ALMA DEL BANCO AWARD for the best thesis was awarded for the very first time. The winner was Marianne Kjeldsen. In her work "Flaschengeist", she revives the stories that her father told her when she was a little girl and implements them in a touching way.
Furthermore, the awarding of the scholarships was traditionally announced. This semester, Daniel Friese (film and motion design), David Kern (photography), Eva Röhlsberger (communication design) and Marie-Sophie Sohns (communication design) can be happy about the waiver of the semester fees.
The subsequent tour and the bachelor exhibition were well attended. In addition to the bachelor graduates, the students of all Art & Design courses also exhibited their various projects. Throughout the building, visitors could discover unique, creative and inspiring works. Whether concept designs for new sustainable business ideas or analysis for the representation of fictitious characters, from cheerful animations for primary school children to mystical creatures of sinister dystopias - the works were as varied and diverse as our students themselves.
Another part of the tour was the "Bauhaus Department". As part of a cooperation with the Hamburg Architecture Summer 2019, which takes place from 7 May - 31 July this year and is dedicated to "100 Years of Bauhaus", the students took the anniversary as an opportunity to revive the school of ideas and experimental fields of the famous art and design school.
We congratulate all bachelor graduates on their graduation and are enthusiastic about what our young artists have created!
