100 years of Projekt Bauhaus

Projekt Bauhaus revives Bauhaus’s  workshop structure in the summer of 2018 in order to explore the emancipatory potential of technologies, the decolonisation of progress and the critique of the present through design.

DALab participated in this educational experiment, and explored the nuances of bringing a tech approach to social design from a temporary, transient and time-based educational setting.

Lead by the most engaging experts from the fields of architecture, urban planning, sociology, philosophy, computer science, political, media, technology history, as well as art and scientific theory, Projekt Bauhaus Werkstatt comprises a series of workshops accompanied by public lectures, exhibitions, artistic performances and informal gatherings. The event was held on swamp area of land near Berlin, with temporary scaffold-like structures built to host the conference.
