Ulm Pixnic


If you have any interest in the history of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm, you’ll value this tasty collection of photographs made available by Dr. René Spitz. “Several years ago, Hans G. Conrad (one of the first three students at HfG Ulm) gave me the photos which he took there between 1953 and 1957, about 12,000 pieces,” he writes. “By now I get publication requests concerning these photos nearly every week. For this reason I started to publish them one after another via flickr.
The images are from the book: hfg ulm. The view behind the foreground. The political
history of the Ulm School of Design (1953-1968)
. Stuttgart 2002, by René Spitz. (That’s Walter Gropius, above, in 1955 and Charles Eames below, top, and Hermann von Baravalle, below bottom.)
