The Space for Visual Research was established at the Bauhaus University in Weimar in 2013 as a workshop and laboratory for experimental research into new graphic, abstract, and visual worlds. The Space's mission is to support the exploratory urge for new aesthetics, in particular by empowering design students to create their own individual imagery. The resulting new Space for Visual Research 2 is the updated lab book — a log of visual vintages, using physics, chemistry, optics, and reproduction technology as the starting points for image production. Technical explanations open up possibilities for customised reproductions of each visual experiment presented here, while commissioned interviews and essays as well as a select bibliography render Space for Visual Research. Published by Spector Books (Leipzig).
