New European Bauhaus

How do we want to live? What kind of buildings, what kind of cities do we want to live in? The programme New European Bauhaus explores these questions in the context of the enormous environmental and social challenges facing us in the 21st century. Inspired by the historical Bauhaus, the programme aims to interlink various issues related to sustainability, functionality and aesthetics. It wishes to bring citizens and experts together, to draw on art, science, theory and practice to develop interdisciplinary solutions for a viable future.

Annemarie Jaeggi, director of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, welcomed the launch of the programme “New European Bauhaus”:

“Even though the world today needs different solutions than were required 100 years ago, we can still learn a lot from the spirit of experimentation of the Bauhaus, from its openness to new ideas and its perseverance under difficult circumstances. The Bauhaus existed between the space of two world wars and under the shadow of a worldwide financial crisis. For students and instructors alike, it was essential to recognise available resources and use them creatively. In view of the challenges today, we must re-establish this creative relationship to objects and make it our own. I look forward to the dialogue and new experiments that the “New European Bauhaus” programme will set in motion.”

What can learn from the Bauhaus today? This question lies at the core of the Workshops for the Whole Earth, to which the Bauhaus Cooperation Berlin-Dessau-Weimar cordially invites you on 4-5 June 2021 at the Bauhaus Dessau.

Together with the Bauhaus Cooperation and other partners, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar will be staging a major digital conference on the New European Bauhaus in May 2021.
