Collect—move—discover—view—open—notice—come into a dialogue—be part of—interact—connect worlds—the University of Europe for Applied Sciences invites friends, family, relatives and colleagues of the Art and Design Faculty to a virtual exhibition and a live vernissage on the 16th July 2021 at 6 p.m. On the following site, archiv.ue-germany.com/exhibition, around 62 Bachelor projects from the summer semester will be presented, from both the Berlin and Hamburg campuses of the Faculty of Art & Design.
After years of intensive study together, the graduates are treading new paths in life that have not been trodden before. Thus, in the summer of 2021, the virtual exhibition platform visualises this transformation of life paths from studying to work, or to the start of academic careers, or to amazing excursions – the exhibition connects these different paths. The last year has been extraordinary and has marked a new sense of togetherness. With the experiences gained and valuable encounters along unexpected forms of communication, the students have arrived in the now. With the passion to create and the trust in the self and an idea of community, the exhibition—with the motto CONNECTING WORLDS—looks into an extremely promising future through multi-layered works that artistically illuminate social, political and very personal themes.
Ceremonies: 6 p.m.
Live Vernissage: 7 p.m.

Since the Rundgänge cannot take place physically at the locations as usual, the Faculty of Art & Design has joined forces and launched the Digital Publishing Platform in summer 2020 to present the final year projects.
In this special graduation year, a group of UE students and alumni have now joined the research project for the third time under the direction of the artistic-scientific staff members Evelyn Solinski and Steffen Klaue as well as Prof. Dr. Lauritz Lipp and the project manager Rana Öztürk. Together with students Amit Heyman, Jacqueline Shanice Ludwig and Pia Roespel and UE alumni Dennis Josek and Alexander Morosow, an innovative platform was further developed that explores the ways of digital publishing. The virtual exhibition CONNECTING WORLDS became the motto for a project implemented at a time when space as well as movements within it were being rethought. The sustainable design of visualising a sense of togetherness through exhibitions, publications as well as dialogue and making projects readable will be re-examined.
Bachelor's projects from the degree programmes Film & Motion Design B.A., Photography B.A., Illustration B.A., Game Design B.A., Communication Design B.A. will be shown.
The exhibition opening will be live and interactive in Zoom for family, friends and university members. With the help of students Frauke Dicker and Emma Wohnsiedler, a curated live stream will be accessible to the public from all over the world at archiv.ue-germany.de/exhibition.
Furthermore, the Alma-del-Banco-Award will be presented for the fifth time by the FORUM FÜR KÜNSTLERNACHLÄSSE (FKN) in recognition of the best Bachelor's thesis in the Department of Art & Design in Hamburg. The FKN is dedicated to the promotion of art, the cultivation and preservation of cultural values and the support of artists in Hamburg and northern Germany.
The renowned jury members from the fields of art, culture and design are Dr. Catherine Colas, Edith Jaspers, Andreas Trampe.
We are pleased that the BA EXHIBITION will take place in virtual spaces and cordially invite you to interact and view.
With the continuing platform ArchivUE, an innovative, cross-location and technically sophisticated archive has been created in which all the final projects of the students of the Faculty of Art & Design are collected and presented in the long term. In addition to an exhibition architecture dedicated to the topic, the platform will be expanded in the future to include an AI-supported and intelligent search function.
The expansion of the collection from previous semesters, as well as student works that have emerged from work with renowned cooperation partners and special works that have won national or international awards, is planned for 2021.
