About the event

From 1953 until it closed in 1968 the influential Ulm School of Design in Germany was one of the world's most important contemporary design academies. Regarded as being second only to the Bauhaus, the Ulm School reflected the spirit of change in Germany in the post-war years, and revolutionised artistic and architectural thinking and production. Dr. Martin Mäntele, director of the HfG-Archive, will provide a tour of the exhibition and speak about the 'Ulm Model' and the designer's role in helping to build a democratic society in a technologically driven age of mass production.
