Flattening two curves: university in times of climate crisis and corona pandemic.
The Klimaschau shows the range of potential that could be tapped during the Klimasemester in summer 2020 at the University of Applied Sciences in order to collectively address the challenges of the climate crisis and develop transdisciplinary approaches and sustainable actions for the here and now.

Graphic Kites – A Manual For Wind
Bamboo, silk, hemp, paper, paint. This semester we will be working with one of the most fascinating aircraft: the kite.
Depicted in a cave drawing on the Indonesian Muna Island as early as 9,000 BC, the kite developed in the most diverse cultures and contexts over the course of thousands of years. Testing the wind, measuring distances, sending signals and messages, transporting people to high altitudes, as an antenna, for advertising or simply for pleasure. With the help of a kite, Benjamin Franklin described that lightning is made of electricity, and the Wright Brothers built an airplane that was actually a kite.
But even in more recent times, the aircraft, whose only fuel is wind, has not lost its fascination. Artists like Tomás Saraceno or Ai Weiwei have built kites, and legendary illustrator Tomi Ungerer made a whole collection of them in the 1960s.
In addition to the individual projects, the latest issue of Some Magazine will be published on the topic of the seminar.
