For this project, the weißensee students developed a concept for a traveling exhibition and installation about Hausvogteiplatz, which served as the center of Berlin’s textile industry until 1939, in cooperation with Dr. Sigrid Jacobeit, Kristin Hahn, and students from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. This project highlighted the roots of Berlin’s clothing industry and its historical importance. The area around Hausvogteiplatz played a key role in this history, as this location once represented the heart of fashion in Berlin. The goal of the exhibition was to memorialize a past culture: The students asked themselves how they could convey a long-gone world and its lived realities, making them accessible to the public – on a small budget and using a flexible system that they could easily transport between locations.
