While the “big name” designers show their wares at the IMA Village, the future stars are grouped together as DMY:Youngsters in the Treptower Park Arena
Admittedly the classification is based on the organisers own perception and marketing concept – why, for example should the students from Bauhaus Uni Weimar be considered “Allstars” while those from Burg Giebichenstein in Halle are classed as “youngsters”? It makes no sense. Especially given that the Burg Giebichenstein show considerably better is than that from Weimar. But people know “Bauhaus”
Such complaints aside, the youngsters exhibition is also a mix of the wonderful and the less so and well worth a visit.
