Passagen 100 | Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau | Students win 1st prize

2019 feiert das Bauhaus 100 Jahre seit seiner Entstehung. Als wohl wichtigste Wirkungsstätte bildet Dessau einen zentralen Punkt in dessen Geschichte und setzt mit dem Projekt „Passagen Bauhausstadt 100“ der Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau in Kooperation mit der Stadt Dessau einen neuen Fokus auf die Gestaltung des Weges zwischen dem Bauhausgebäude und der Stadt. In einem eingeladenen, interdisziplinären Ideen- und Realisierungswettbewerb unter Studierenden der Hochschule Anhalt, Hochschule Düsseldorf – Peter Behrens School of Arts, Kunsthochschule Bremen, Hafencity Universität Hamburg und der Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach wurden im Wintersemester 2017_18 verschiedene Gestaltungskonzepte entwickelt und nun vor einer Jury präsentiert.

Gewonnen hat das Projekt „OBJEKTE BEWEGEN. Suprematistische Situationen eines Weges“, das an der Hochschule Düsseldorf – PBSA im Lehrgebiet Räumlich-Plastische Gestaltung bei Prof. Gabi Schillig entstand. Es ist das Ergebnis interdisziplinärer Zusammenarbeit von Studierenden der Studiengänge Kommunikationsdesign, Applied Art and Design und Exhibition Design: Lara Bechauf, Lilli Lake, Marie Longjaloux, Rosa Morgenstern, Marie-Christin Schlang, Ruven Wiegert und Miriam Hausner (Assistenz). Mit der konkreten Umsetzung soll im Herbst begonnen werden und in Zusammenarbeit mit den Studierenden im Mai 2019 zur Eröffnung des Projekts, abgeschlossen sein.

Raumstoff | Fritz und Trude Fortmann Stiftung für Baukultur und Materialien | Symposium

Raumstoff – Textiles und Architektur

Textilien gehören zu den ältesten Baustoffen der Menschheit, sie verhüllen, bilden Raum, schützen, trennen, verbinden und schmücken. Heute bieten textile Konstruktionen und Membranen neue architektonische Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und Funktionalitäten,
als Werkstoffkomponenten eröffnen Textilien vielversprechende Forschungs- und Experimentierfelder zur Entwicklung neuer Bau- elemente und Konstruktionsweisen. Mit ihrem Workshop 2018 „Raumstoff – Textiles und Architektur“ fragt die Fritz und Trude Fortmann-Stiftung für Baukultur und Materialien nach der Bedeutung des Textilen für die Architektur und die Zukunft des Bauens.

Breaking Out of the Surface - The Origami Principle in Art | Exhibition | Marta Herford

Ausbruch aus der Fläche – Das Origami-Prinzip in der Kunst
Breaking out of the surface – The origami principle in art

Feb 24th—Jun 3rd, 2018
Marta Herford
Museum for Art,
Architecture, Design

Our world consists of folding techniques, bends and crushes. Flower buds, wings, the brain and even DNA offer perfect natural folding templates, which people have been using for centuries as creative media for developments in science and technology. Artists also reflect the origami principle. Unlike classical sculptural techniques they work without adding or exposing anything, solely on the basis of the possibilities of deformation to form spatial constructs. With these threedimensional objects they combine order and chaos, planning and chance. In a totally playful way this gives rise to filigree objects, space occupations or conceptual spaces.

Goodall | Radeberger Brache Cologne

Seven invited artists will develop individual artistic concepts for the ‚Radeberger Brache‘, a rural and protected landscape in the south of the City of Cologne, Germany. The works will be materialized through individual artistic investigations to be realized through the medium of printed matter: a diverse spectrum of foldable leaflets that allow a critical artistic examination through text, image and typography. Together they will form an open archive for future (maybe utopian) spatial concepts within the context of an urban, green, rural landscape.

Hybrid Talks XXVII Generative Aesthetics | Hybrid Lab TU Berlin

"Generative aesthetics is often used as a synonym for digitally generated art. The 27th Hybrid Talks will however show that this term is used to describe concepts from widely varying disciplines. We will look at it from the perspective of acoustics, philosophy, art history and computer science. We’ll hear about examples of algorithmically generated literature and sounds, artificial internet browsers and the digital backbone of these developments. Will the boundaries between an act of creation by a computer and that of humans become apparent? And is such a differentiation of any value in the first place?" (Text by Hybrid Lab)
