Julia Meer majored in Communication Design and worked at the Institute of Art and Design Science at Bergische Universität Wuppertal (the University of Wuppertal). In her dissertation she analysed the reception of the New Typography movement and the professionalization of the design discipline. In addition to her academic activities, she also works as a freelance designer, organizes series of lectures, and publishes the magazine »ff.«. At the Cluster Julia Meer is investigating the genesis and reception of the Bauhaus logo as a liquid pictographic process and its development in the interplay between Gestaltproduktion and reception. The programmatic and aesthetic diversity inherent in Bauhaus permits appropriation, adaptation, and interpretation.
