Over the past several months, all of us – students, staff and teachers – have expanded our skills in improvising, rescheduling, failing and adapting, restructuring, developing, creating, shaping and interacting. We have learned to think outside the box, as well as opened ourselves to new perspectives. Since our graduation exhibition cannot take place on campus as usual, the Faculty Art & Design has coordinated all efforts to bring a new Digital Publishing Platform to life and present the final work of more than 100 graduates virtually – in keeping with the motto OPEN MIND. Through this virtual forum the theses from the study programmes Film + Motion Design (B.A.), Photography (B.A.), Illustration (B.A.), Game Design (B.A.), Communication Design (B.A.), Photography (M.A.), Media Spaces (M.A.), Visual & Experience Design (M.A.), and Innovation Design Management (M.A.) will be shown. The exhibition opening and party will take place live and interactively on the platform.
In addition, the Alma-del-Banco-Prize will be awarded for the third time to the most remarkable final project on the Hamburg campus. The prize is donated by the FORUM FÜR KÜNSTLERNACHLÄSSE, which is dedicated to the promotion of art, the care and preservation of cultural values, and the support of artists in Hamburg and Northern Germany.
The renowned jury members are Christian Doering, Paz Ponce and Thomas Sello.
The Digital Publishing Platform also provided financial support to nine students for their participation in the creation of the virtual platform, thus providing job opportunities despite the current situation. We are excited that the BA/MA EXHIBITION will take place in virtual spaces, and we invite you to interact and enjoy the show.
We are happy that the VIRTUAL BA/MA EXHIBITION will take place in virtual rooms and invite you to interact and to enjoy the show.


With the Digital Publishing Platform, an innovative, cross-location, and technically sophisticated archive called ARCHIVUE will be created, in which all final projects of students of the Faculty Art & Design will be collected and presented on a long-term basis. The works will be made accessible to the public with filter functions and will be preserved for the future in a sustainable way.
