In his lecture "The Inconvenience Space - The Future of Parting" Henrik Rieß asks the question: How can we design goodbye?

In his course "The Future of Farewell" at FH Potsdam, Henrik Rieß explored possible future perspectives on the design of of farewell and the associated social consequences with students. To lessen the gravity of the topic and to be able to talk about wishes, hopes and fears, they projected the topic of farewell into different futures with new technological possibilities and changed social norms.

Among others, projects by Rosa-Sophie Hamburger, Lena Hoffmann, Maryna Honcharenko, Peter Schwarz, Gesine Tränhardt and Lena Zagora will be shown.

Henrik Rieß is a Creative Director with over 15 years of expe-rience in UX and applied Design Research. As a lecturer for Interaction Design, Design Thinking and Speculative Design, he works with students on socially relevant issues in the so-called "Inconvenience Space".

Impulse by Christian Kahl (Fuenfwerken), Prof. Matthias Ries and Andreas Viedt. Followed by an open round.

MAMUNA - Masks that help in everyday life and others.
Masks for mouth and nose have become our daily companions and will probably remain so for quite some time. No wonder that many here see a big business opportunity and offer masks at extortionate prices and often of questionable quality.
Mamuna shows that this does not have to be and it can be even better. Because the "provisional" company has found a way to supply the cultural and creative industries (but also other companies) with disposable masks at unrivalled low-priced and at the same time support those who especially need our help.

Prof. Matthias Ries from the Faculty of Design at the HAWK in Hildesheim will give a short presentation on "Design in Crisis" to mark the current situation. He will shed light on both historical developments and current designs that attempt to answer the ambiguous question of design in crisis.

IDZ-Coach Andreas Viedt briefly presents his webinar "Appreciative communication as a value-adding activity" planned for June 18th.

Afterwards open round.
