Explosion Class — Bursting boundaries
Klasse Explosion — Grenzen sprengen
2011, University of Applied Arts Vienna

›Explosion Class‹ emerged out of the blue. Its challenge was to present selected art and design projects from students of all disciplines in a digital pop-up space during the university's annual exhibition The Essence. Explosive works were exhibited online at the university’s homepage and on the project’s website

Anonymous critic

An explosion is a sudden and largely uncontrolled release of energy. The class embodies the elements of classification and systematization. The combination of the two opposing aspects causes an outburst of creativity. Explosion Class ended in smoke when the exhibition closed. Traces of the unexpected outburst still exist in the World Wide Web.
