About The Club
Finally, the After School Club enters its second round!
This years design festival will take place from 18 — 23 March 2013 at the HfG Offenbach.
Once a year, during the lecture-free period of the HfG University of Art and Design Offenbach the dormant parts of the university are transformed into a student-organised workspace. The festival includes workshops, lectures, symposia and exhibitions.
For one week aspiring design students will be able to attend six different workshops, each led by an internationally acclaimed designer. To promote the idea of education as common property, the whole event will be free-of-charge and open to the public.

Tattooclub basically is: David Schießer, Malte Zenses and our special guest Stefan Marx
Tattooclub is trying to establish the ancient/old school tattoo craft into our attitude of art and to deal with the question "what's tattooing today about? / how could it be meant by now and what are the references to our brotherhood. We also will adapt some traditions to give an impression of the classic "walk-in-tattooshop". It's all about F.U.N and a lot of sick and fucked tattoos for you. None of us is a professional tattooer but with much love we will make shit happen.
Steady is the live printing Riso workstation initiated to give creative working indiviuums the opportunity to work with a Riso machine right on site of several events based in the cultural and creative sectors.
MZIN, founded in 2008 by Philipp Neumann and Karen Laube, is a bookshop and project space for graphic and art with small exhibitions on space display throughout the year.
The program of the bookshop focusses on all sorts of publications from fields of artistic productions with a slight twist on pop culture-aspects. The selection is all about originality, relevancy and how it is done. Finally, we like to sell stuff that wasn't on sale in this city until now. Starting from 2011 we like to travel around our area to sell our goods and discuss this attitude.
Put together and curated by photographers, Album is a mirror, a field for experiments, a platform for young and emerging artists in contemporary photography.
A magazine fundamentally dedicated to photography in all its diverse aspects: Photography in the form of images as well as in texts, in the sense of a verbal interpretation. Once every six months we take a spontaneous but serious look at new approaches and perspectives towards photography. Double pages with 80 x 57 cm on newsprint reproduce the images almost as big as their actual exhibition size. The aim is to create networks for artist and art historians, who are willing to shape and further develop this project along with us. Album is published by Victor Balko, Oliver Dignal, Stefan Stark and the Offenbach Academy of Art and Design.
unbreakmyheart, founded end of 2011, is a small diy musiclabel based in Frankfurt.
The debut EP from YOUNG HARE has since then been followed by releases from SKIRT, FORMER GHOSTS and BODYBUILDING. Furthermore unbreakmyheart regularly organises concerts in Frankfurt and Offenbach, staging bands from the label as well as others. There will be an exclusive record-booth at the conference day of the ASC, where next to own releases, prints and beautybags, records from the befriended labels ALTIN VILLAGE & MINE and the record-shop TACTILE in Frankfurt will also be on offer to sample and buy. So come by, sit down for a chat, listen to music and stroke the dog, he'll be chuffed!
