These URLs will save the IRL is a result of a two-year-long speculation on the topic of German art schools’ websites. The project started a hypothesis that German art schools sometimes deliberately create opaque interaction patterns to create an obstacle for potential applicants. During the research, I conducted UX tests, accessed archived versions of the websites, made design/UX analysis, comparison tables, wrote a manuscript, and travelled on the spot undercover to compare the website and real-life accessibility. This turned into the publication, written by me and collaboratively designed by 25 students of University of Arts Bremen and Klasse Digitale Grafik Hamburg.
