Berlin University of the Arts Berlin, Germany
Founded as the first German transfer point in the field of design by Prof. Werner Linder († 14 September 2014), designtransfer has provided a stage, gallery and communication platform for the College of Architecture, Media and Design at Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) for more than 30 years. designtransfer initiates, coordinates and presents exchange between the fields of study – Architecture, Product and Fashion Design, Communication in Social and Economic Contexts, Visual Communication and Art and Media – and the industry, as well as national and international cultural institutions, design studios and universities.
As a communicative interface between the university and the public, designtransfer organises exhibitions, hosts events on design issues, and acts as a cooperative partner for external projects and competitions. Thus, designtransfer promotes an extensive, critical public discourse on current trends, positions and developments in and between the various design disciplines.
