Exhibition design combines curatorial, graphical, (interior) architectural, media and other aspects. Within design disciplines, colour forms an important interface. There are many linkages regarding building conservation and architecture as well as content conception of exhibitions. This area serves as an originator of the workshop, to point out exhibition design as a whole and colour in particular. The many facets of display design will be conveyed via relevant exhibition visits and subsequent practice-oriented interpretation and application of colour. They will also be examined on the basis of examples and project sketches.
