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.
Bauhaus projects around the world
From Weimar to Rotterdam, from Tel Aviv to Chicago: Bauhaus was always a global phenomenon which reverberated around the world. The anniversary programme 100 years of bauhaus accordingly pays tribute to this. The international programme for the jubilee was presented for the first time in all its facets at a well-attended new conference at the ITB in Berlin, headed by Bodo Ramelow, the state premier of Thuringia and chairman of the Bauhaus Association 2019.
Pioneers of a new world
What would the Bauhaus be without the Dutch? An exhibition that opened last weekend in Rotterdam answers this question. The influence of Dutch artists, designers and architects on the new start-up was so immense that it would easily be possible to think that the Bauhaus would not have become the Bauhaus without them.
How the Bauhaus found its way back to Europe
We tend to see the influence of the Bauhaus on the USA as a one-way street. In fact, the fertilisation was reciprocal and continues to this day.

“The Indian state has only existed for 13 years. And world history would be unthinkable without its unorthodox influence. India has delivered more new content in the last decade than any other country." HfG Ulm founder Otl Aicher's report on his trip to India in 1960 and the slides he took during his journey across the country are impressive observations of a country in upheaval. From today’s perspective, this material reads like an overture to the future collaboration between two design schools: the HfG Ulm and the NID in Ahmedabad.
