Discover the Bauhaus!
nhaften Künstlern bis zu Neu- und Wiederentdeckungen werden Geschichte und Geschichten rund um das Bauhaus lebendig.
Mysticism and Mazdaznan
Modern, technically talented young people designing practical objects for an enlightened world: the fact that the Bauhaus was founded in Germany no doubt further strengthened its reputation, since both the Bauhaus and the country are internationally regarded as unemotional, rational and focused on reason. We take a look behind the glass façade and discover spirits in tubular steel chairs and true Bauhaus angels.
"Queer people have to some extent been erased from Bauhaus history."
The art historian and author Elizabeth Otto adds an important chapter to the history of the Bauhaus: that of the queer creative. Her book "Haunted Bauhaus: Occult Spirituality, Gender Fluidity, Queer Identities, and Radical Politics" will be published on 17. September. We talked to her in advance about art in a queer context, gender at the Bauhaus, and the forgotten activist and designer Richard Grune.
From Workshops to Hackerspaces
Replacing classrooms with workshops is one of the Bauhaus’s best-known innovations. A hundred years later, the “workshop” is an indispensable component of all design education. But where are the limits and opportunities of this format, and what role does the realization of collective structures play in the further development of new technologies?
Education Between Artificial and Artistic Intelligence
The Bauhauslers’ vision of mechanization and machines for living in seems within our grasp in the age of artificial intelligence and smart cities. The growing influence exercised on politics and education by “transhumanists”—who speak out in favor of overcoming what it has previously meant to be human by means of a convergence of technology and humanity—confronts us with the other face of technological optimism.
On Grand Tour: Exploring Modernism’s Architectural History
Out of the museum and into Bauhaus life: There are many good reasons to hit the road once the Grand Tour of Modernism in Bernau has been launched with a national event on 2nd May. Discover outstanding locations, both of the Bauhaus and of modernism. Pioneering and iconical architecture and unusual buildings – all constructed between 1900 and 2000. The Grand Tour invites you to explore one hundred years of architectural history. We would like to present you with a small but fine selection. Enjoy exploring. We’ll start with four tour destinations in Brandenburg.
From Bauhaus to a School of Schools?
Almost one hundred years after its founding, the Bauhaus, which began to revolutionize learning, has itself solidified into the sacred cow of design education. In order to expose the magical moment of disruption, curator Jan Boelen and his team were transforming the Istanbul Design Biennale 2018 into a huge field of experimentation for a necessarily restless and puzzled educational offensive.
