Keeping Face

Chinese packaging design at Klingspor Museum

Together with the art department of Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, Klingspor Museum presents an exhibition of current trends in Chinese packaging design. Chinese books as well as packaging techniques have always been rather more sophisticated and sensual than Western creations in this field. Works of students of the »Shanghai Institute of Visual Art« (SIVA) will be shown as well as those by Gu Chuanxi, professor for packaging design and pioneer in contemporary Chinese packaging design. »Shanghai Style« has been trend setting as early as in the 1920s, and not only in fashion, but also in graphic and product design. The notion »Shanghai is different« is still valid today. With the foundation of the »Shanghai Institute of Visual Art« almost exactly 10 years ago, the metropolis keeps developing in this direction.
