With this exhibition, we combine contemporary perspectives of an urban lifestyle with the main problems of our time and our visions of a warrior.

With our „POP Projects“ students and graduates have the chance to work interdisciplinary on projects. They gain additional knowledge, receive feedback from experts and professional credits for their curriculum vitae.

The terms and conditions vary depending on the different projects. There is always a release or presentation of the final work at the end of each POP Project.
