Knowledge in Images – Information Design today

Never has so much information been exchanged as today. Whether for visualizing big data, publishing journalistic findings, spatial orientation, or as material promoting effective learning and teaching—information design explains the most diverse contents within the shortest time through combining much visual material with few words. For images have the power to simplify and illustrate complex facts. But precisely because information design must lend itself to intuition, its objective form may also contain manipulated contents. The exhibition presents this topical area of visual culture in printed and moving images and makes immaterial knowledge playfully experienceable through interactive installations, for example about the threatened heritage of Asian martial arts.
