Since its inception in 2013, the Weimar-based research lab Space for Visual Research has gradually enlarged its operations to inspire a lively exchange with students and like-minded practitioners. A fundamental part of this endeavor is an ongoing series of exhibitions, lectures, and workshops, which have been hosted by universities and cultural institutions across the globe.
During the “Bauhaus Year” 2019, a team around SfVR founder Markus Weisbeck was invited to the Paju Typography Institute (PaTI). After a first visit in 2018, the alternative design school near Seoul hosted the visual researchers from Weimar a second time. And once again, the latter revived the Bauhaus spirit with one of their practice-oriented workshops. The result: a series of experimental graphics, made with unconventional tools and techniques.
