„The Dresden Damascus Room – the right object at the wrong time and place“ is the title of the 2013 Summer School. The international and interdisciplinary cooperation aims at putting the recently uncovered and restaurated Dresden Damascus Room exhibited at the Japanisches Palais in Dresden in a certain context, enabling the visitors to experience it in „the right time and place“. Tackling this task, 12 Students from different fields and cultural backgrounds combine creative forces and knowhow: School of Architecture, Art & Design, American University in Dubai / Chair of Media Design, TU Dresden / Center for Industrial Design, TU Dresden / Junior Professorship for Knowledge Architecture, TU Dresden and of course the Dresden State Art Collections who present the collector’s item from the Ottoman Empire of the 19th Century.
We’re really happy to Welcome our guest students from the American University in Dubai staying for the week as well as the more permanent international participants from Chech Republic, Russia and India. During yesterdays vernissage, we had the possibility to watch the participating faculties of Dresden University of Technology presenting projects they are currently working on and by this means getting to know each other through testing and experiencing, asking and explaining.
The blog will work as a visual diary during this week, along with the normal blog posts, in order to keep everyone updated on the project who’s interested in it. Today’s brainstorming and experiencing event and more information on the Damascus Room itself will be updated tomorrow – stay tuned!
