Panel Discussion with Former Students of Hin Bredendieck (Online)

How did Hin Bredendieck’s teaching philosophy and experience at the Bauhaus impact designers who studied under him? Join the Georgia Tech Library for a live streamed panel discussion with the former students of Hin Bredendieck as they share their experiences as Industrial Design students at Georgia Tech and how their work was impacted by studying under Bredendieck.

This panel discussion will be moderated by Susan Sanders from the College of Design, and panelists include Ed Duggan ('63), Ken Fuller ('69), Carolynrose MacKown Gentile ('64), Jim Kindley ('68), Jim Oliver ('65), and Irwin Schuster ('57). This event is free and open to all.

This panel is organized in conjunction to the From Aurich to Atlanta exhibition, a new bilingual exhibition at the Georgia Tech Library that showcases the life and work of Bauhaus-educated designer Hin Bredendieck in both English and his native German. The physical exhibition runs from March 22 through May 31 in the Library's gallery space on the first floor.

This event is hosted by the Georgia Tech Library and the Landesmuseum Oldenburg (Oldenburg State Museum for Art and Cultural History) with sponsorship from the Halle Foundation. Collaborators include Dr. Jennifer Gerndt, the Consulate General of Germany, and the Georgia Tech School of Industrial Design. Special thanks to the Bredendieck Family and the former students of Hin Bredendieck for their contributions to this exhibit.
