Bags from Bielefeld

  • Info

How can longing for home manifest itself in luggage?

Fashion and Grafic Design students at the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences (Department of Design) develop accessories that tell of being on the move between cultures and continents. Forms, surfaces, materials, prints and applications are researched and developed. Inspirations of pop culture and visual memories from the home countries are to be formed into a new fashion symbiosis.

Which pieces of luggage did people have and still have with them on their journey between continents and cultures? What are the containers for their personal belongings for people when they migrate? How does the longing for the old homeland manifests itself in the luggage? How does the longing for the new home manifests itself in the luggage?

The basis is the content-related examination of the themes of migration, transculturality and being on the move in the 21st century.

In a workshop, designers from the Berlin accessory label Liebeskind will teach the students all the necessary processes for developing and processing bags. The results will be presented in September/October 2019 at the Goethe Pop Up Minneapolis Goethe in the Skyways in a Pop Up Shop.
