If there is a fashion house in which fabric, city and university are rooted, it is Akris in St.Gallen, the city of embroidery. A photo exhibition on the HSG campus invites you to discover a total work of art that combines world-class fashion, architecture, furniture design and art in construction.
Iwan Baan’s extraordinary photo prints from 2022 show the architecture of the Fördererbau in the best light. They will now hang at the HSG in autumn 2023, inviting visitors to discover and view them in the passageway between the library building and the refectory. The main building, which is used in everyday student life and is sometimes only noticed in passing, will be given a new aesthetic dimension through the exhibition. As an extraordinary experience, the photo gallery sharpens and opens the eye for the total work of art consisting of architecture, furniture design, building art and clothing, and shows the people at the HSG that studying should be characterised by holistic, networked thinking.
