Captcha Mannheim

Initiated in 2014, the CAPTCHA Design Festival will be taking place for the 6th time this September in Mannheim. The festival is organized by students of the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim. There will be four different workshops and a symposium about this year’s topic NOISE. The idea of this subject might be a bit blurry, maybe you immediately think of sounds or white noise, which is known from television. But there is so much more about this matter to be explored. We are looking forward to explore the different Perspectives and Creative Designs.

We have some very interesting and reputable artists and designers from different countries which will hold workshops and take part at the symposium. The results of the participants of our workshops will be presented in a final one-week exhibition.


Every beginning is in need of information! So get ready for many interesting lectures given on the first day of the festival. This year’s topic and central questions will be discussed there. Our lecturers will show their work of Design and Art and shed light on the theoretical components of the topic NOISE.


The Workshops are intended for up to 60 design students and will take place in the facilities of the zeitraumexit from the 06th until 15th of September 2019. Our four guest designers, who represent a broad variety of fields will realize the topic NOISE in different ways. In each Workshop the participants and the Workshop Leaders will develop their own projects and work together experimentally.


After the four days of workshops all results will be shown and celebrated in a closing exhibition for one week. The exhibition takes place at the Kunstverein Mannheim from the 2nd to the 15th of September.
