In the next three years the HGK Basel will be building and renovating buildings at their new campus site, Dreispitz, on the fringe of Basel. It will not only be new quarters for the college, but also will be an entire art and design environment with studios, museums, apartment housing, restaurants, a radio station and events space. It will be the first time since the founding of the HGK Basel as part of the FHNW university system, that all the students, faculty and departments will finally be together. The following images are a taste of what is to come.

The development of a new cultural urban space in a very old city has attracted great interest from all over. Here a projection from the Copenhagen Architect/Design company Bjarke Ingels Group TRANSITLAGER

The Basel School of Design— Science Slam http://asiancorrespondent.com/74747/the-basel-school-of-design%e2%80%94-science-slam/ http://asiancorrespondent.com/74747/the-basel-school-of-design%e2%80%94-science-slam/#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2012 11:48:38 +0000 http://asiancorrespondent.com/?p=74747

At a Science Slam, each competitor has ten minutes to present his/her research topic to the audience and win their support. Participants can come from all areas of science, from particle physics to social sciences, from history to art theory. The medium of presentation is free and can range from a more traditional talk, to a dance choreography, a stage play or a self- composed song. Everything is allowed to win the votes of the audience, in whose hands it is to decide who leaves the stage as winner. Daniel R. Müller, MAS Visual Communication Institute, won last year. His theme was “Feeling Rhythm instead of Recognizing Order”. In his presentation/demonstration he explains how we understand and experience “Rhythm”. Although his presentation is in German, it can be enjoyed purely visually and acoustically. He is the second person in the video; the first person is the emcee.

We tip our hat to 2 institutions that help to inform and better the world of design. First off, Neshan Magazine, 10 years old, one of the finest printed and edited design magazines around today. It was born in 2002 and went to press for the 1st issue in 2003. Secondly, Rene Wanner’s Poster Page, a one man non commercial website dealing with posters, poster exhibitions, auctions, book reviews, links to other poster sites and lots of information and images for all of us to rummage about in. It is entering its 15th year online. Thanks to you both!

I Should Have Known Better and The City are two video clips from Dirk Koy, former student and now teaching and working in the Visual Communication Institute. Through his studies he began experimenting in time-based-media with a special interest in animation. His thesis project was a series of video trailers on the theme of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Two recent personal projects he has done are for the music group Five Years Older. It has been the object of the education in Basel to teach students the fundamentals of designing and to promote imagination and experimentation in finding her or his personal creative way after school. The creative act is a process not a moment.

The International Master of Fine Arts UIC/HGK is a collaboration of the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC) and the FHNW/HGK Visual Communication Institute. It was developed for Graphic designers, Visual Communication designers and Media designers, with a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent degree with professional design experience. It is entering its fifth year and has already earned recognition for the quality of the education. It seems only yesterday that the first students presented their thesis projects in the diploma exhibition 2009. Here you can meet them.

Borders of countries are very precise yet invisible boundaries of space. They come in all shapes and sizes. They limit and divide, create an inside and an outside. But, they also create the opportunity for comparison, connection and communication. This is the idea for the following compositions from students who are studying and living within new borders in Basel.

Undergrad students and graduates from the area of Interaction studies in the Visual Communication Institute are working on final preparation for their “medial wall”. The project together with the department store Manor in Basel is an interactive and reactive work on the window façade of two sides of the building. It will begin this week and continue for 6 weeks. Particular emphasis was given to the discussion of cultural importance of architectural lighting scenarios in a city environment. And, whether this short-term event could have a longer lasting role in Basel.

The Visual Communication Institute in Basel offers workshops for students, graphic designers and educators. The workshops afford insight into topical themes in Visual Communication in a study program reflecting the rich tradition of the Basel School of Design. Practical exercises with a high level of professionalism form the core of the workshops focus. Reflection as well as contextual knowledge will be conveyed by way of input sessions, allowing participants’ work to be judged within a contemporary, future-oriented, context relevant to professional practice.

If you are interested in seeing and reading some impressions of the 2011 workshops you might want to visit Matthew Wizinsky’s site where he has posted information about the three workshops.

Students graduating from the Visual Communication Institute whether in the BA, MA or MFA program often chose to pool their experience, knowledge and abilities when they join together and open a design studio. Among many goals of design education in Basel, one is “learning how to learn”! Learning how to learn means learning from and through what you do, what you think, what you see, because our environment is changing and challenging us daily. This is what makes the design profession for all designers of every age such a dynamic living experience.

The following are links to a few studios from designers who have recently graduated from our school.

Rhine Knee  (excerpt of photograph from Günter Borgemeister + Thomas Mottl)

The Rhine River runs through the center of the city of Basel making a right turn from a westwards to a northwards direction before going on into France and Germany. It is not only a landmark of the city but also its main orientation signpost and guide. Therefor it is no surprise to see the Rhine as a central element in a series of design studies for a new city orientation system executed by students of the international MFA program in Visual Communication. Besides analyzing what and where information needs to be located in the city, they made proposals for the design of the 3-dimensional elements as well as the intuitive/interactive map information panels.

This fall The Basel School of Design was honored to participate in EXD’11 / Lisboa Design Biennale which took place in the Portuguese Capital from September 28th to November 27th.

EXD is an international biennale dedicated to design, architecture and creativity. As a thinking platform it hosts debates and lectures, cultivates and analyses contemporary culture through discussion and reflection.


EXD’11 / lisboa design biennale

The Basel School of Design took part in one of the leading events of EXD’11 Education Programme: Open Day Abroad, organized by Susana Gaudencio, the Coordinator of Education Program. This event brought together universities from different countries to present their academic curricula, projects and creative teaching strategies in the fields of design. It was a great opportunity to converse and network between the first graduating class from the  Master of Arts in Visual Communication and Iconic Research program at the Basel School of Design and FBAUL master students from the Design de Comunicação e Novos Media.


The participants from the Open Day Abroad

The presentations and discussion took place in the Lounging Space, where graduates from the Master of Arts in Visual Communication and Iconic Research program presented their thesis projects.

Displays in Dialogue: The Exhibition and the Book by Lena Friedli and Michael Huebner

This project examines the relationship between art, exhibitions and books. Exhibitions can be understood as the premise of display, which can refer to each other in different ways. In order to grasp the multilayered relationship of the two displays, they are contrasted in a series of exhibitions. The situations thereby engendered to challenge conventional structures, dismantling them in order to show new possibilities of art.

Photographing. Deliberations on the Photographic Design Process by Svetlana Marcenko

The specifics of photogenesis manifest themselves in the technical nature of image recording and account for the distinctiveness of photographic design. This is composed of a complex network of related decisions which occur both before and after triggering. This project attempts to illustrate the stages of this process and discuss the factors which influence it.

Creating Individual Experience through Non-Linear Narrations in Moving Images by Safak Korkut

Film narrative is a way of understanding data under the illusion of occurrence; the mind is capable of building a set of rules as a narrated story even if the pieces do not belong to each other. This thesis project aims to achieve a narrative structure that generates an indefinable number of stories, thus the individual combination of the videos becomes the key for the creation of a narrative.

Investigating Imagination as a Cognitive Act by Indre Grumbinaite

Images and imagination are considered to be natural to our thinking. Imagination is traditionally regarded to be the mental capacity for experiencing, constructing or manipulating concepts, sensations and mental imagery. Focusing on imagination as the capacity to form mental images, this project explores its role for visual perception and image creation.

Exploring the Three-Dimensional Reality of an Image by Yo Oun Choi

This project is an exploration into a three-dimensional reality of an image by analyzing the phenomena of human visual perception. By showing a two-dimensional image that is created in an unconventional way, visual focus shifts from what viewers see to how they see. Thus, the experience allows viewers to reflect on their own seeing habits and questions how their visual system works.


Exhibitions in the Lounging Space

Students from Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon warmly welcomed the visitors with a guided tour through the exhibition of the semester works of master students as well as from all bachelor courses. The students discussed the topics, approaches to different themes and compared the methods of research along with the relation between practice and theoretical studies.


Visit to the Faculty of Fine Arts

Besides the participation at Open Day Abroad, the trip to Lisbon was an exceptional chance to visit the Biennale and have an insider’s perspective on the events. Under the theme Useless, the 6th edition of EXD questions the idea of use and its absence through various lectures, conferences, open talks and impressive curated exhibitions. Many exhibitions located all over the charming city of Lisbon were of a great interest and an effort was made to see as many as possible in one short week.
