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.
Avant-garde at the Waterkant
Muntin windows, brickwork and ceramics are part of Hamburg’s architectural DNA. But the Hanseatic city also has its Bauhaus buildings: rectangular, white and panorama-paned with rounded terraces – although Hamburg’s Bauhaus world is not all stone and glass. The avant-garde has also left its traces and still inspires young creative people today. Learn how and where in our tips for Hamburg in June.
A breath of fresh air for the refined
Summer is simply not a time to lounge around at home. Perhaps you are yearning to travel and make new discoveries as much as we are. We’ve put together a programme that combines the open air with the Bauhaus. Be playfully inspired in Quedlinburg and Gotha, explore the Rhineland while tracing the footsteps of Mies van der Rohe, ramble through the Loheland or enjoy pleasant dreams in a very special Berlin bedroom. We even have something in store for you should you stop off in Rome on your way south.
“We want to create some Chaos”
Jakob Klenke, activist and gymnastics teacher at the Bauhaus is the brainchild of the artist’s group “Jakob K.ollektiv”. With their fictitious figure the young creative artists want to point out the heterogeneity of the Bauhaus and contemporary parallels. In this interview Moritz Frischkorn and Thomas Pearce explain why their fictional character intrudes at the “Hamburger Architektur Sommer” with fitness courses and a costume party.
In 1923, Georg Muche radically rethought construction and living with the Haus Am Horn in Weimar. Now the house is close to its original state again – and publicly accessible.
