Bauhaus Lab 2016: Desk in exile. Apply now! Desk in exile – the transatlantic journey of Bauhaus furnishings
• 9th May to 5th August 2016
• joint exhibition from 5th August 2016
Bauhaus Lab 2016 follows the travel routes of Walter Gropius’ desk. Designed as part of a cohesive ensemble for the first Bauhaus exhibition in 1923, then in use in the director’s room in the Bauhaus building in Dessau before being temporarily located in the Lawn Road Flats in London. Today the original is found in Lincoln, Massachusetts (USA).
The Bauhaus Lab explores these transatlantic movements and in doing so makes the iconic desk itself a player in a constantly changing set of locations and social environments. The Lab will yield artistic and curatorial ideas about the communication of object-based histories of exile.
The Lab is intended for international young professionals from the fields of architecture, design and curatorial practice. The programme will be held in English and will end with a joint exhibition at the Bauhaus in Dessau. Participants will be provided with a workspace at the Bauhaus, without paying tuition fees.
Application deadline: 29 February 2016
To apply please send a CV, a portfolio and a letter of interest (in English) by email by 29 February 2016 to head of the programme Dr. Regina Bittner at the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation: firstname.lastname@example.org
Up to eight participants will be chosen by an international jury.
