Exhibition: Craft becomes Modern. The Bauhaus in the Making.

10:00 Uhr

Hammering, planing, sawing and weaving – it was pretty loud and dusty in the workshop wing of the School of Design, the Bauhaus Dessau. Although conceived as ‘laboratories for industry’, a great deal was still done by hand in the Dessau workshops.

The exhibition ‘Craft becomes Modern. The Bauhaus in the Making’ in the original setting, the weaving workshop in the Bauhaus building in Dessau, tells the story of the workshops from the perspective of craft. In the microcosm of workshop praxis, the exhibition shows the prevailing wide-ranging field of conflict in which craft at the Bauhaus was redefined as a utopia, albeit one that coexisted with industrial culture.

Opening times: daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Bauhaus Dessau
Admission: Bauhaus-Ticket 7.50 €, concessions 4.50 € 

(May 21st free Admission)

Ages 8 – 14

Every Wednesday (except school holidays)
4 – 6 p.m.

With or without prior knowledge, there’s a place for
everyone in the open workshop! The Bauhauslers
and their interest in craft experiments and the
exploration of materials provide the model for our
own work in the workshop. From this starting point
we will design textiles, carry out experiments with
chewing gum and more and practise the production
of video and audio projects. We will invite professional
crafts experts from far and wide to join us so that
we can learn from them and find new ways of crafting.

What makes a material smart? How do materials influence our lives? How do we work with them in order to shape our present and future? Questions pertaining to the significance and processing of materials were already being addressed at the historic Bauhaus. Now, almost 100 years later, the exhibition smart materials satellites. Material as Experiment in the Stahlhaus on the Dessau-Törten housing estate, built as a material experiment by the Bauhauslers in 1926/27, focuses on the latest research into materials.

News from the Design Machine
Ages 10 – 16

31. July – 4. Aug 2017
10 a.m. – 15 p.m.

Equipped with a 3D printer, the summer expedition
ventures into the realm of the inventor. Using this
device we investigate new manufacturing processes
in the company of artists and designers. What is
a prototype, and how does it come about? László
Moholy-Nagy and Otti Berger knew that its development
called for a great deal of skilled craftsmanship.
Following in the footsteps of the Bauhaus
we analyse present-day planning, development,
design and production. In practice, we try out the
production of own prototypes, from digitally generated
model to the printed individual object.

Attendance fee: Euro 30
(including costs for lunch and materials)
