About: Exhibition catalog profiling the works of students from various disciplines. “The Design School, which was officially opened in 1955 after six years of preparation in the building complex designed by Max Bill on the Kuhberg above Ulm, did not add one more to the existing design schools. The Ulm school was a novelty from the start. Not only are their objectives clearer, more real, more radical, more comprehensive than those of all institutes that train designers for the design of machine series products, components and graphics in the service of advertising. Also unique is the lack of illusion with which the task in Ulm recognized and tried to solve the interdependence with the realities of our rational-technical world.” Hans Eckstein
