bauhaus imaginista tells the transnational story of the Bauhaus for the first time on this scale and brings together an account of its reception in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Following exhibitions, symposia and workshops in Hangzhou, Kyoto and Tokyo, São Paulo, Lagos, Delhi, New York and Moscow in 2018, HKW will show all four chapters of the exhibition and research project. On more than 21,000 square feet, with historic works of art and design, including rare loans and diverse archival materials, as well as commissioned works by Kader Attia, Luca Frei, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, The Otolith Group, Alice Creischer, Doreen Mende, Paulo Tavares and Zvi Efrat, an overall picture of bauhaus imaginista will unfold at HKW.
The education program offers guided tours, an audio guide and workshops as well as the school project Bauhaus Reloaded. Students Design the Future.
The conference in May will illuminate the implications of the Bauhaus for the development of experimental educational practices and their worldwide resonance from a historic and contemporary perspective.
Curated by Marion von Osten and Grant Watson in collaboration with a team of international researchers
A comprehensive catalog will be published in March 2019 by Thames and Hudson.
