Summer Workshops

The Visual Communication Institute HGK, Basel offers workshops for students, educators and graphic designers.

Dear Applicant for the Basel Summer Workshops 2020

Due to the actual international situation, we have decided after many considerations to cancel the Summer Workshops 2020.

From the feed back of former participants we know that the workshop experience is relying on the exchange of the participants
and faculty, the cultural context of the city of Basel and the facilities of our academy.
Due to the ongoing restrictions, we cannot meet these expectations this year with online workshops.
The applications we have received come from a large diversity of time zones, which makes it impossible to meet online in a live
distance format. From our point of view this would be a minimum requirement for conducting this years courses in a digital channel.

We are sorry for those for having to cancel the workshops and thank you for your interest.
We look forward to offer a unique experience at the Basel Summer Workshops next year!

With best regards,
Gent Shurdhani, Coordinator Basel Summer Workshops
Michael Renner, Director of HGK FHNW at interim


The Visual Communication Institute HGK, Basel offers workshops for students, educators and graphic designers. The workshops afford insight into topical themes in Visual Communication in a study program reflecting the rich tradition of the Basel School of Design. Practical exercises with a high level of professionalism form the core of the workshops focus. Reflection as well as contextual knowledge will be conveyed by way of input sessions, allowing participants’ work to be judged within a contemporary, future-oriented, context relevant to professional practice. The trinational Rhine river valley is a unique cultural environment with easy access to France and Germany, and to sites such as the Vitra Design Museum (G), the Isenheimer Alter (F) or Ronchamp (F). In Basel the Fondation Beyeler, Tinguely Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Schaulager and the Museum of Contemporary Art are world renown. Besides its museums Basel offers a rich mixture of cultural events.
