Exhibitions 2008

25 May - 9 June 2008 - Paderborn University's UPBracingTeam exhibits PX 207 racing car in the University Library

Before the RacingTeam of Paderborn University competes with the newly developed PX 208 at the Formula Student in Silverstone in England and then in Hockenheim in Germany in July, visitors to the University Library can take a closer look at the predecessor model PX 207 from 25 May to 9 June 2008.

With the presentation of the car, the RacingTeam is introducing itself and recruiting new members.

The RacingTeam is looking for a name for the current formula car. This year, the members of the RacingTeam are leaving the naming to the students of the Paderborn University. During a "name contest", interested parties can submit suggestions, which will then be evaluated by the RacingTeam. The idea provider of the winning name will receive a fifty euro voucher for the university pub.

Information about the team can be found in the exhibition and on the team's homepage: http://www.upbracing.de.

Opening hours of the University Library: Monday to Friday: 7.30 - 24.00, Saturday to Sunday: 9.00 - 21.00. On 05.06.2008 the UB closes at 14.00 due to the AStA Summer Festival.

15.01. - 08.02.2008 - "Braids - Fabrics - Devices"

On the occasion of the completion of the 90th semester of Prof. Walter Schrader, who, as the longest-serving university lecturer at the University of Paderborn, gave a lecture from his scientific research field "Children's Drawing" in the summer semester of 2006, works from his many years of creative work will be shown. These include selected works on the similarities between fine art and textile design as well as objects created in the interaction between fine art and other artistic disciplines. Some objects are represented by documentation, as the devices themselves are located at their destination or in museums.

In addition to his teaching activities and his lectures on art issues - mostly in connection with exhibition openings - Schrader initially attracted public attention primarily through his drawings, some of which are on display.

The exhibition in the university library provides an insight into the broad spectrum of his varied activities and artistic work: Goldsmith's work (e.g. monstrances for the liturgy), looms for the production of exquisitely patterned medieval silk fabrics, graphic reconstructions of important fabrics, artistic knots, some of which can be seen as ceiling paintings in the university church. designed as ceiling paintings in the university, dial variations in textile techniques, jewellery, enamel chandeliers, woven masks, medals ("Person" and "Sertürner"), drawings for the studio stage and templates for greetings cards from the university at the turn of the year - and much more besides.

The exhibition can be visited during the opening hours of the University Library: Monday to Friday: 7.30 a.m. - midnight, Saturday to Sunday: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. (closed on public holidays).

The opening of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, 15 January 2008, at 18:00 in the foyer of the University Library.

06.11.2007 - 11.01.2008 - Exhibition "Schools that are completely different. Reform schools in the past and present."

The exhibition of the project seminar "Schools that are completely different. Reform schools past and present" shows how diverse the institution of school can be. Based on the observation experiences of students, various reform schools are presented using three-dimensional objects they have created themselves, objects they have brought with them, photo collages and posters.

The observations are related to a project seminar in the subject of education, which took place in the summer semester of 2007 at the Paderborn University's Institute of Education Studies under the direction of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Keim. In the seminar, different concepts and models of reform schools were first analysed in terms of their underlying pedagogical ideas, followed by excursions lasting several days to the Marienau rural education home near Lüneburg and to the integrated comprehensive schools in Cologne Holweide, Cologne Chorweiler and Göttingen Geismar.

The students were given the task of finding a reform school themselves, exploring it during a one to two-week observation period and then compiling an observation report. The combination of theory and practice was of great importance. The aim was therefore to analyse pedagogical ideas and the pedagogical concept of the respective reform school in terms of their implementation.

The exhibition centres on the experiences of the students in the schools they visited. The spectrum ranges from schools in North Rhine-Westphalia, to schools in the supra-regional field, to schools in Switzerland and Scandinavia. The students involved in the project set individual accents in the presentation of the selected schools, reflecting their experiences and feelings.

The exhibition can be visited during the opening hours of the University Library: Monday to Friday: 7.30 - 24.00, Saturday to Sunday: 9.00 - 21.00 (closed on public holidays).

The opening of the exhibition will take place on 6 November 2007 at 5 p.m. in the foyer of the University Library.
