Director Bernd Scherer on the program January/February

How do digital languages shape the bodies and cultures of the present? How do they construct and control identities? Until 2021, HKW will be researching social processes of change with The New Alphabet. This adventure of present-day research will begin with the Opening Days. In its thirtieth year, HKW again creates new ideas and utopias by combining the arts and the sciences. This will be demonstrated in practice for the kick-off of the anniversary year of the Bauhaus: we will question its social position in view of the current social crisis and the threat of neo-nationalist tendencies. Yet the transmediale also revolves around the impacts of the digital and raises questions about the political instrumentalization of emotions. We are looking forward to a stimulating start of the new year!
