The Mass is pleased to present ‘ECAL Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship’, a selection of student projects of ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne from their Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship.

ECAL / University of Art and Design Lausanne (Switzerland)
 
As a school of international renown in the fields of design, photography, graphic design, cinema, new technologies and art, ECAL has been constantly ranked among the top 5 art and design schools. Since 2011, ECAL has been headed by Alexis Georgacopoulos and it has grown and established itself as a leader in the creative world. This could not have been achieved without the involvement of skilled practitioners, artists and designers of global renown or the many collaborations and commissions for cultural companies and institutions. As a consequence, ECAL students acquire a sound knowledge and benefit from a challenging practice-oriented education.
 
The Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship (MAS DLC)
 
This unique course is specifically aimed at Bachelor and Master graduates who wish to further their design education in areas of excellence as varied as ne watchmaking, tableware, fashion, gastronomy, ‘Métiers d’Art’ or who wish to learn particular techniques with regards to the use of noble materials. The students (fifteen or so each year from all over the world) are able to work in collaboration with high-profile companies, which can draw on a heritage of a hundred years or more, and to gather skills from workshops organized by major players from the international design scene.

The Massの第一回目の展示では松本瑠樹ポスターコレクションより、ロシア・アヴァンギャルドを代表する作品をグラフィックに焦点を当てセレクトし、展示いたします。1920年を横断するロシア革命期に制作されたこれらのポスター作品は、「アヴァンギャルド」という軍事用語を含んだ言葉からも察する通り、当時の国家の文化政策としてのプロパガンダ(政治・思想宣伝)、映画宣伝等の政治的要素を色濃く反映した視覚芸術の作品群として存在します。本展覧会で公開する作品群はロシア構成主義と呼ばれ、極めて最小限に制限された文字やイメージ、色を一枚の画に配することにより、説明を持たずとも直接的にその意味を伝達することができる”グラフィック”の本質を表現し、伝えることができているものと言えます。決して肯定的ではない混沌とした時代の中で築き上げられた新しい文化(カルチャー)としてのロシア・アヴァンギャルドのポスター群は、アイデンティティーを残しながらより斬新で革新的な記号としてのグラフィックデザインの存在意義を今一度問う貴重な機会となることでしょう。
