Emmenbrücke Genius Loci #5
From Local Phenomena to Global Questions

Students of the bachelor Visual Communication, Camera Arts of the Lucerne School of Art and Design present their project engagements with Emmenbrücke, a Swiss town near Lucerne which is the new home base of the Lucerne School of Art and Design.

Thirteen first-year students have engaged themselves with the people and contexts of Emmenbrücke. Observations of details in the neighbourhoods as well as situations further away provoked creative questions relevant beyond the immediate local scope. For example Flurin Bertschinger worked on temporary migration and labour. Rhea Keller investigated various canteens of organisations and businesses around Emmenbrücke. Alexandra Baumgartner followed a group of peers in their final year, the 9th class of their school. Kim Jonas Meier documented abandoned installations of a waste recycling plant.

Further projects of Kira Barlach, Alexandra Baumgartner, Flurin Bertschinger, Julia Brun, Anna-Tia Buss, Tanja Frey, Rhea Keller, Kim Jonas Meier, Leila Remstedt-Drews, Jannis Sanchez, Monika Scherer, Severin Pomsel und Michael Walker are shown in a publication, experimental websites and an exhibition.
