In 2015 the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle, Germany, looks back on a rich history that spans 100 years. The “Burg” is perhaps best known for its numerous workshops on campus which are deeply rooted in the university’s curricula and – of course – for the memorable landmark (Burg, Engl. castle) that is found in its unique name.
