Open Studio Sydney

Radical Hospitality
A post-otherness intervention for future migrant cultural projects and accommodation facilities
20–24 June 2016

This Open Studio explored methods and material aspects of the design history of the Bauhaus Dessau using contemporary strategies. The investigation of the meaning and material requirements of a “simple life” began with the famous photo Interieur (Interior) by Hannes Meyer.

On this basis the students were tasked with planning a spatial intervention based on a subjective critical interpretation of Jacques Derrida’s lecture Of Hospitality and to integrate this in the Steel House, which was designed by Georg Muche and Richard Paulick and built in 1926/27. The objective was to develop a radical hospitality concept with regard to interior and spatial design, based on a performative and scenographic paradigm that apprehends culture per se as performance and activates space through internal activities.
