Global Resonance Spaces
How, one hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus, can culture be rethought as a social project? And how does the design school continue to inspire visionary practices and discourses today? The curators of bauhaus imaginista Marion von Osten and Grant Watson discuss with art historian Mona Schieren the Bauhaus’s transnational relationships, correspondences, and migration stories, and its relevance for an art, design, and education of the future.
What's new in the West?
Artists where attracted to the Bauhaus due to the diversity of forms, formats and means of expression – not only in the initial years. Until today the invitation to experiment, to think freely and creatively is a strong source of inspiration for young creative people. Their creativity is based on multimedia, networking, working as a collective or in pairs. And thus they transport the Bauhaus from the present to the future.
Walter Gropius: Does the Bauhaus belong in the Museum?
Since 1919 "Bauhaus" has been collected in Weimar. The resulting collection is to this day the oldest Bauhaus collection authorized by Gropius.
Back to the Future
