Bauhaus Now (1): What Made Bauhaus Great?

Simon Guentner, Charles Landry, Chris Murray, Sunand Prasad, Jana Revedin, Tim Stonor and Alexandra von Stosch

Description Details

In 2019 we face our own systemic challenges that cannot be addressed by a ‘business as usual’ approach, and there is a desire for a major transition. 2019 has its own zeitgeist and challenges, politically, economically and socially, as we grapple with technological complexity and learn to live with difference. This session will discuss the forces that emerged from the zeitgeist of 1919, how these led to the Bauhaus, what the forces acting on us in cities are today and how the energies of these can be captured and directed toward new solutions. The panellists will discuss the importance of the Bauhaus across art forms, but particularly to the city, asking, 100 years on how well have we done at city making based on the Bauhaus legacy – for better and worse – and what is left to do?
