Come and visit our design exhibition “Ulmer Modelle – Modelle nach Ulm” from 15 October – 15 November, 2013 at the Yuchengco Museum, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
The exhibition opens on Tuesday, 15 October 2013, at 6 pm in the Yuchengco Museum, Makati City.
The exhibition “Ulmer Modelle” has captured over a million visitors worldwide for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Ulm School of Design. This Design School combined theory and practice of craftwork and produced objects of industrial, product and communication design, which are showcased in this exhibition.
The Design School was founded by Inge Scholl. She’s the sister of Hans and Sophie Scholl. In 1943 Hans and Sophie, 25 and 22 years old, were members of the student group “White Rose” in Munich and fought against the German Nazi Regime. They spread flyers with anti-fascist messages and eventually were executed by the Nazis. In memory of her siblings, Inge Scholl founded the Ulm School of Design after the Second World War.
This Design School existed only from 1953 until 1968 but has influenced various famous designers such as Ferdinand Porsche and shaped the philosophy of industrial design products of Rosenthal, Lufthansa and Braun.
The Goethe-Institut Philippinen is happy to welcome Daniela Baumann who grew up in Ulm and is currently working at the Ulm School of Design Archive to share with us the insights of the Ulm School of Design and how its members influenced German society advocating democracy during its time.
