edi – the Exhibition Design Institute of the HS Düsseldorf – University of Applied Sciences (HSD) invites you to the third Werkkonferenz in Düsseldorf. Together with international guests and alumni, we're taking a glimpse at the 'new tools' shaping reality. With lectures, workshops and Check-In spanning different disciplines, this platform for experimentation takes place over multiple days.

We're creating an atmosphere for good conversations, bringing together interesting people and taking time to ask questions. We'll be looking into new projects between design and architecture, and exploring points of intersection and freedoms. What's currently being researched in studios? What's happening in designer labs? What new methods and old technologies are at play? How do we actively want to shape the future? What's possible and what do we have to do to achieve this? Where must we get to the bottom of things and where will new opportunities arise for a better world?

It's perfectly clear we live in confusing times. New technological possibilities are creating new tools and have long since been changing designs traditionally influenced by handicraft. New chances as well as risks are being opened up. Our questions are stuck between design disciplines and production processes, with a focus on strong authenticity, independent individuality and deliberate sustainability. How are new ideas brought into the world? What does innovation and experimentation mean for creative work today? What can digital tools do and what remains important for the classical cultural tools of handicraft?

During the Werkkonferenz 2015, we'll explore our thoughts on four major key areas: New tools and

– New materials
– Media culture
– Virtual design
– Experimental space

There will be lectures and workshops held on each of the four topics, accompanied by the exhibits of the Exhibition Design’s master's students who organise and design the entire Werkkonferenz 2015. We welcome our alumni to kick off the event and look forward to holding inspiring talks on experiences and suggestions as well as on past reviews and future prospects.
