The project BEYOND SEEING will be presented for the first time in a transdisciplinary and interactive exhibition in January 2018 in Paris. The exhibition aims on creating a multisensory experience. The visitors – seeing or not seeing – will touch, hear, smell and taste as well as experience and interpret fashion beyond the visual aspect.
The WIP, located in Parc de la Villette, has been won as a partner. Designed by Bernard Tschumi, the park, 35 ha in size, houses one of the largest concentration of cultural venues and is therefore among the most important culture places in France. The exhibition’s venue extends on two levels over 500 sqm.
Until the grand opening of the exhibition all participating students finalize their designs in close exchange with the blind and visually impaired participants. At about the same time Scenography workshops are held with architecture students of the University of Applied Sciences and Technology from Wismar; Germany, Professor of experimental design Julian Krueger is in charge of the conception and realization of a modular and sustainable exhibition architecture.
