19:00 Opening bauhaus imaginista bauhaus imaginista narrates the international histories of the Bauhaus. Since its foundation in 1919, the school was in contact with other avant-garde movements worldwide. bauhaus imaginista proposes a rereading of the Bauhaus as a cosmopolitan project with global resonances. The exhibition traces transnational relations, correspondences, and narratives of migration, going beyond the years the Bauhaus was active as a school (until 1933). For the first time, the project tracks the translation of Bauhaus concepts into different political and geographical contexts. The title bauhaus imaginista hints at the imaginative possibilities which were opened up by the Bauhaus, and the multilayered interpretations that the term still denotes today. Between archival findings and contemporary contributions, the project translates the historical perspective into a set of contemporary questions: How, in the spirit of the Bauhaus, might culture be reimagined as a social project today? What kinds of institutions would such a project need? And in what ways does the Bauhaus still stimulate visionary practices and discourses today? The exhibition places the Bauhaus in context with like-minded schools in other parts of the world. It reflects the artistic exploration of craft techniques, materials, and practices; examines how Bauhaus concepts on socially integrated design were transformed, adjusted, and challenged; and uncovers how the innovative use of media at the Bauhaus influences art and pop culture even today. Curated by Marion von Osten and Grant Watson in collaboration with a team of international researchers and artists. A collaboration between the Bauhaus Cooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar, the Goethe-Institut and HKW. 21:00 Film Screening Bauhaus Spirit: 100 Years of Bauhaus (imaginea trebuie sa fie insotita de Copyright: ©Filmtank) Nearly a hundred years ago, a radical artistic utopia was born in Germany. Founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, Bauhaus was supposed to unite sculpture, painting, design and architecture into a single combined constructive discipline. Bauhaus constituted one of the most significant contributions to everyday 20th-century culture, but it was never just an artistic experiment. Confronted with the social conditions of the time, as well as the experience of World War I, the movement concerned itself with the political and social connotations of design from the very outset. Bauhaus's history is not just the history of art, but also the history of an era that stretches from the early 20th century to the modern day. BAUHAUS SPIRIT describes the fascinating story of Bauhaus as a statement, but also the failure and renewal of a social utopia. It tells of artists, scientists and architects today, and how their challenges might relate to Bauhaus. This story unfolds while asking questions still relevant today: How do we want to live, where do we want to go?
