YOUNG SCENOGRAPHERS CONTEST

logo

The EMEE  Young Scenographers Contest was organized and carried out by EMEE project partner Atelier Brückner from Stuttgart, Germany, supported by the art association monochrom from Vienna. Based on project ideas that the EMEE project partners had put forward, students and young professionals of design, scenography, architecture and other creative disciplines around Europe were asked to develop innovative concepts of a multi-perspective presentation of objects in a European context. The competition strongly encouraged competitors to develop the ideas of EMEE further and to submit their own topics and ideas, provided their compatibility with EMEE’s motto One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions. The competition, which was launched with an inaugural event at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste (State Academy of Fine Arts) in Stuttgart, received 60 submissions from eight European countries, out of which 29 submissions were preselected for a shortlist. In the end, four submissions were awarded the Young Scenographers Prize at the awarding ceremony that took place during the Designmonat Graz on 7 May 2015 in cooperation with the FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences and the Museum im Palais in Graz, Austria.

WINNERS OF THE YOUNG SCENOGRAPHERS CONTEST

1ST PRIZE

d86c262414
Mirjam Scheerer
(Interior Design and Scenography, Academy of Art and Design, FHNW, Basel)

Did you hit the jackpot? A multiperspectival exhibition on guestlabour in the post-war period

‘… the project reflects the Europe-wide labour migration movement making the visitor playfully aware of a multi-facetted historical event. The topic is smartly and impressively translated from a personal, individual level, into a collective, European issue and at the same time from content into space: Five individual biographies offering five perspectives represent the storytelling and the spatial structure of the exhibition …’ (Comment by the jury)

 

2ND PRIZE

02c8536680
Stephanie Gindlstrasser and Johanna Köttritsch
(Design & Communication/ Exhibition Design, FH Joanneum, Graz)

(Art) Europallet. The first European Product?

‘… the “(Art) Europallet” as the centrepiece of the installation is a bold, amazing object choice. It is expressively set staged in an unusual way: It “floats” in the space, meets the visitor on eye level and lets him experience new points of view. “(Art) Europallet” deals with the fact that the daily carrier, which represents standardization in contemporary European culture, is turned into a migrant protagonist …’ (Comment by the jury)

 

3RD PRIZE

11201b3796
Valerie Keusch
(Interior Design and Scenography, Academy of Art and Design, FHNW, Basel)

Contemporary Witness Olivetti M40kr. An emotional journey through four typewritten letters addressing the end of the Second World War

‘The Olivetti M40kr. typewriter composes the core of the exhibition and represents the starting point of a journey through four letters referring to the end of the Second World War. The four letters from different persons of diverse nationalities make it possible for the same historical event to be experienced from different and surprising perspectives which is one of the basic ideas of the EMEE project.’ (Comment by the jury)

 

4TH PRIZE

9bfaf4c378
Victoria Orrom
(Interior Design and Scenography, Academy of Art and Design, FHNW, Basel)

Cultures transforming value

‘The project presents Europe-Asian trade relations during the 18th century, stressing the unfamiliar insight that Europe tried to copy Chinese originals and techniques. It’s about the value of the core exhibit – a porcelain chinoiserie –, from different perspectives of culture, tradition, time and place. Thus the concept is clear and consistent applying the Change of Perspective on the reflection of European cultural heritage as intended by the EMEE project …’ (Comment of the jury)
