Degree Show 2022 might require special knowledge and skills outside of the exhibition team, formed by the students in this module. If you are interested in working for Degree Show producing for example photography, video production, websites or marketing – reach out to the teachers. There are opportunities to be involved outside the course curriculum.
This is a live project. Students will create the exhibition from concept to reality, design, manage and order materials and build the exhibition. They will connect with partners and sponsors and market the exhibition.
Minimum 80% attendance.
Majority of the work will take place at classrooms where project work and guest lectures are held. Or online if the situation so requires. Possible visits to museums and exhibitions are organised. Independent visits to museums, galleries, fairs, showrooms and other exhibitions or online exhibitions are highly recommended during this course.
In order to develop a good concept and achieve a live exhibition in May, this course is running through the whole Spring semester 2022. However, the intensity varies, where more work is required at the beginning and during the final weeks of the course. More independent time is scheduled mid course. This course will feature an extensive exhibition design project that will be done as group work. Some of the work will take place outside of lecture days, where the group is free to arrange its own schedule, working method and space. Participation in crit sessions is mandatory. Depending on individual workload, students can do 5 to 15 credits on this course.
This course focuses on developing and building the Institute of Design Degree Show 2022, opening on Design week (1st week of May 2022). The students can join the full module (15 ECTS) or individual courses (á 5 ECTS). The module is: MI00BS05-3004 Exhibition architecture, MI00BS06-3004 Exhibition design and communication and MI00BS07-3004 Narrative in exhibition design. The design process is done in stages to develop the ideas into full concepts that can be applied also to exhibition architecture and other areas of exhibition design and communication. Through this process the students will learn the main tools and theories on how to approach temporary, ephemeral spaces; to think of 3D space, to research and visualise ideas and understand what curator’s and other stakeholder’s roles are. This course will feature group work, as the main project will be created in teams. Guest lecturers are invited to provide more in-depth knowledge on what special requirement exhibitions and fairs have. This part of the module has a strong focus on visual identity, environmental graphic design, communication and marketing. Students will learn basic project management skills by acting as project managers.
