As the world celebrated 100 years of Bauhaus, we asked: what can a design course do to build on and challenge the prominent “Bauhaus” narrative that has proliferated in design schools around the world? How has “how” and “what” we learn changed since 1919?

Imigro:  the rise of a new outcast subculture

For Khalilzadegan’s BA project, she produced the first issue of her ongoing publication, Imigro. At the exhibition she launched the magazine as well as built a floor-to-ceiling moodboard featuring pita bread, printed images, maps, and a Persian rug.

In her words:  Imigro is an alter ego, a product of society. This work is a personal confession; an homage to double-identity and cultural heritage (s).

Imigro is a contemporary visual storyboard using photography and three-dimensional research items.
