Material as Experiment

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? An exhibition turns into a research laboratory. 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 Steel House on the Dessau-Törten housing estate, built as a material experiment by the Bauhauslers in 1926/27, focuses on the latest research into materials.
