Project: Vanishing

An intercultural cooperation between two book classes, one at Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU, Hong Kong and the other at Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences, Kamp-Lintfort, Germany.

For one semester we will focus on things that are vanishing; disappearing from our sight, our culture, everyday life, our city, our society, our thoughts and minds. Those things could be objects, people, structures, words, gadgets, places, buildings, sayings, words, thoughts, tradition.

The students of these classes will rediscover and explore for one phenomenon that is in danger of extinction or which is already disappeared and create a book about it. The different cultural, geographical and social background of the member of the classes will be an inspiring indicator for this project.

The result of both classes will be presented in exhibitions in Hong Kong and Germany.
