Space for Visual Research 2

The Space for Visual Research (SfVR) is a platform for experimental image production. Established as an extracurricular laboratory at the Bauhaus University Weimar back in 2013, it encourages graphic designers to explore alternative modes of making and expand their creative repertoire.

Published by Spector Books, the research lab’s eponymous logbook Space for Visual Research Vol. 2 is now about to be launched in its second edition. An extended version of its predecessor, it combines a new selection of science-inspired visual experiments with a comprehensive series of conversations, essays, and artist contributions.

Connected by the common objective to open up new vistas in contemporary image making, creative practitioners such as Dirk Fleischmann, Amos Fricke, Ken Hollings, Casey Reas, Cybu Richli, and Martin Venezky open up the space, providing insight into related approaches in the educational, professional and broader socio-philosophical context.
