About the Club:
Once a year, during the lecture-free period of the HfG Offenbach, University of Art and Design, 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. After School Club is a student-run project by Königsklasse and Prof. Eike König of HfG Offenbach.

Tattooclub — We are the tattooclub. In these days the oldest technique of selfstaging tries to find its place between art and handcraft. We combine traditional tattooing with contemporary drawing and try to find a combination between one of the oldest folkarts with modern designs. Also searchingly between hand-built whips, hand poked styles and the classic way.
It’s about the love for tattooing and its infamous history full of seamen and gangsters. Tattooclub basicly is Stefan Marx, Felix Kremers, David Schießer & Malte Zenses. Everything’s possible.
