The first edition of the German Design Graduates Show took place at the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin from October 11 to November 10, 2019.

Exhibitors were 42 of the best bachelor, master and diploma graduates 2018/2019 of 12 of the most renowned German art academies in the field of product and industrial design.

The exhibitors were selected by an exclusive jury. In statements, the jurors have summarized their thoughts on GDG.

In 2019 the jury consisted of Stephan Ott (Form), Nils Holger Moormann (Moormann Möbel), Nicolatte Naumann (Ambiente Frankfurt) and Claudia Banz (Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin).

The exhibition shows eight topics that can be seen as topical for the world in which we live and also for what is important to young designers.

The exhibition design as well as the realization was realized by students of the FH Potsdam under the direction of Prof. Hermann Weizenegger.

During the ceremonial opening on 10.10.2019 over 20 prizes & green cards were awarded by ambassadors from culture and industry.

Lucas Verweij moderated the evening.
