The multi-platform event DRAFTS invites researchers and designers to discuss the role of artifacts in research- and design activities within disciplines such as fashion, textile, and interaction design.

    In an international collaboration between the Berlin University of the Arts and the University of Borås – Swedish School of Textiles, artistic and research-based works are presented as part of an exhibition at designtransfer, a performance festival, as well as a symposium. This is accompanied by a one-day event at the Berlin Open Lab during which MA students of the organizing institutes present their design projects together with MA students of the Kunsthochschule Weißensee, HTW Berlin, and the HfS Ernst Busch to illustrate the meaning of artifacts from their perspectives.
