|The documentation "Women at the hfg ulm" understands itself as a search and securing of traces of all the women that studied, lectured or were members of the staff at the hochschule für gestaltung (hfg ulm). It is a particular and a particularly attractive characteristic of this survey to show the former hfg-women as a part of their group as well as in their totality.
The hochschule für gestaltung, founded in 1953 and closed in 1968 is considered as one of the most important teaching experiments in the post-war era not only in Germany. It disclosed new professional fields. It is not possible to separate such an experiment from the persons that taught there and it is not possible to abstain from the students that were willing to undergo this educational scheme. A relatively small number of these were women. Program and training curriculum of this unusual school attracted young persons from very many countries (38); they were not a fortuitous student staff, but individuals with the readiness to tread new paths. 98 of the overall number of 644 students were women. They came from 19 countries.
"Women at the hfg ulm" is a survey in the form of "life-portraits" of all the former "ulm-women", as far as they were within reach or else there was available information.
The website www.frauen-hfg-ulm.de, a very particular archive, which can be complemented at any time, was developed due to the initiative and in the collaboration of Gerda Müller-Krauspe, Ursula Wenzel, and Prof. Petra Kellner.
