Intro
This year's graduation show at the University of Applied Science Düsseldorf displayed the works of all 80 final students of the Design faculty on a digital platform. On the digital 'Werkschau' you can view the final results in jewellery and products of six bachelor and master students of the New Craft Object Design Department. Driven to explore, discover, question, and shape the six graduates developed well-reflected and significant new products. Extensive research and interpretation of traditional jewellery forms, design and society, everyday objects, new innovative technologies or contexts between jewellery, fashion and art are the base of their individual design process. 

Artist list

Alischa Kilburg, Kyu-Ri Park, Theresa Schuker, Katharina Stäb, Irene Winkels, Anna van Eck
Unexpectedly and suddenly, students had to switch to a very digital exchange to complete their final degree this summer. The errors and problems of this digital communication have been incorporated into the imagery of print and digital media for the graduation show by Tatjana Pöschke and Marie Lena Volmar. Like every year students of the Communication Design Department of our faculty develop the general corporate design for the graduation show, usually in print and place, this year in a new media. Prof. Holger Jacobs supervised them through the process unto a website which showcases all results of the 80 graduates of the design faculty and several analogue prints in the city.
 
Somehow the analogue and digital spaces merge successfully and offer new possibilities in presenting. The successful cooperation between the New Craft Object Design and the Communication Design Department complete the individual graduation projects and is paradigmatic for studying at the Peter Behrens School of Arts of the University of Applied Science Düsseldorf.

Guiding team:
Prof. Jantje Fleischhut, Prof. Mone Schliephack, Prof. Dr. Yvonne P. Doderer, Dipl-Des. M.A. Jochen Zäh, M.A. Maryvonne Wellen, M.A. Klemens Schillinger.
Kyu-Ri Park. Object: Repräsentation weiblicher Sexualität in Korea, 2020. Papier-mâché.. 35 x 22 x 2 cm. Photo by: Kyu-Ri Park. MA
. Statement: Kyu-Ri Park comes from Korea and deals in her master degree with the female sexuality in her home country. Her detailed historical research finally reveals a clear connection between today's ideal of the beauty of women genitals and the ancient Chinese belief system. The influence of Confucianism still nurses the chastity as the highest beauty standard in Korean society. Women are divided into two groups based on Confucian values; the chaste women, who are well qualified for future wives and mothers of the nation and on the contrary women as sex objects. Therefore vulva plastic surgery is widely advertised and very common in Korea. Kyu-Ri Park living abroad for several years formulates a voice to this absurdity in her home country. She translates the topic in abstract forms. With this collection of wearable pieces, she wants to encourage for more diversity and self-determination.. Kyu-Ri Park

Theresa Schuker. Print: Mediating Bodies, 2020. Photo by: Theresa Schuker. From series: Mediating Body. MA
. Statement: Theresa Schuker love for found plastic objects let her begin very detailed and philosophical research about the pollution from this vary material. Her work MEDIATING BODIES — encounters with plastic tells the story of a material that has become so highly important in the Anthropocene. It is the materials focus on the function which leads to the problem: as soon as the purpose is fulfilled, the material loses its value and our attention. Theresa Schuker is convinced that the absence of the aesthetic in the material is responsible for this problem. Aesthetic is derived from the Greek word aisthesis and means perceiving, feeling, and understanding. Only when we perceive something, feel it through our sensory experiences, we can understand it — we regard it as aesthetic. The collection MEDIATING BODIES transform found plastic objects into textile elements and allow the observer unknown access to the beauty and qualities of everyday plastic items. Theresa Schuker shows very convincingly that plastic contains more values than just its function.. Theresa Schuker

Alischa Kilburg. Body piece: The one, the other, 2020. Textile, metal.. Photo by Laura Schleder(piece on body); Alischa Kilburg(product and details).
. Model: Emma Mertens.
. MA
. Statement: Alischa Kilburg has been dealing with the phenomenon of borders in all its forms for some time. She examines, questions and explores the field of boundaries intensely; with which she sensitizes the ego to expands an understanding of social structures. The genre of the border is analysed historically, artistically and philosophically in its meaning and appearance; Covid19 adds another layer to her topic. Nevertheless, Alischa Kilburg breaks completely away from the negative terminology. She does not deal with the negative connotations of the border but reveals the positive view upon the dividing line as an element to mix and bring together. This reflects very well her own personality and her importance of involvement in social topics.
