It’s cold outside as Melbourne turns on one of its winter days (sunny and beguiling one minute, storm forecast and rain the next) but city workers, art lovers & RMIT Staff and students who pop into RMIT Gallery at 6 pm tonight for the opening of the Ulm School of Design exhibition will be greeted warmly with German beer and bretzels.

The exhibition will be opened by Michael R Pearce SC, Honorary Consul-General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Melbourne, with a special address by Dr Martin Mäntele, Director of the HfG Archive, and Dr Arpad Sölter, the Director of the Goethe-Institut Australien.

For those unable to share the evening with us, please join us at 12.30-1.30 pm at RMIT Gallery on Friday 1 August for the curator floor talk with Dr Martin Mäntele (pictured) from HfG Archive, and learn about the design & social theory behind the famed ‘Ulm Model’ approach to design methodology. This extended across the five departments; industrial design; visual communication; film; information (journalism) and building and embraced studies ranging from subjects such as semiotics, technology, ergonomics, sociology, and linguistics.
