bauhaus lab

To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Bauhaus establishment, on the initiative of the City of Weimar German, British, Hungarian and French partners brought into existence the bauhaus lab 2009 project. bauhaus lab is a international network of interdisciplinary laboratories on new artistic strategies and modes of interdisciplinary co-operations. In full appreciation of the ideas behind the historical Bauhaus movement and their lasting impact on today’s affairs, the project wants to further explore the present conditions for an innovative artistic practice across disciplines and national borders.

In the five international labs established on five different locations the activity is running parallel and in a strong cooperation joining several times on several surfaces. Over and above that another important aspect of the development of the network is a preparation of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Bauhaus movement.
