15 Million Minutes of Fame
In the midst of an era of hypermedial networking, art is also undergoing a fundamental change. Classical drama and analog performances will not simply disappear in the future—but social networks are already revolutionizing the definition of the stage. A look at the workshop of “reality art” and its efforts to act in the spirit of the Bauhaus.
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?

A Guideline for Teachers’ Self-education
It is enough to make you want to cry, although tears often do alleviate emotional strain: the wisdom of the backwoods and mutterings of the salon still see education as an instrument to align young people with precisely those expectations held by parents, teachers, and employers, on which it must be based.

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.
History Is About Radical Moments

Her expertise in contemporary art is based on a profound exploration of the modernist stage. We talked to her about 100 years of bauhaus and the upcoming Performa Biennial.
