YAW: Karlsruhe — Paris mini-exchange program

During the Wintersemester of 2018-19, 14 students of the HfG Karlsruhe and the Ensad Paris participated in a unique, student-organized exchange program: a series of week-long immersive residencies, going back and forth between France and Germany, rounded up by a weekend reunion at the end of the semester.

As a base for our mini-residencies and as a graphical documentation of the exchange, each student had to produce 7 pages, about their experience in their host school, making use of the ressources available on site.

To conclude the project, we all met for a reunion weekend, to produce the 20 copies of the common publication, constituted by all individual 7-pages projects. The meeting point was an old screw factory near Verdun, where we spent two days hand-binding all the books and free-hand designing the covers, without forgetting to celebrate with a little party on Saturday night!

On Monday morning, the 20 publications were finally in front of us and it was time to part ways, but not without a final group photo and a promise to see each other again soon!
