Albers colour speed workshop - Bauhaus Week

Albers colour speed workshop - Bauhaus Week

Registration is required for this workshop. You can only sign up for one workshop.

The Bauhaus strives to bring together all creative effort into one whole, to reunify all the disciplines of practical art - sculpture, painting, handicrafts, and crafts - as inseparable components of a new architecture» Walter Gropius

The structure of the Bauhaus Vorkurs (preliminary course) reflected a pragmatic approach to integrating theory and application. The focus was on the development of spatial structures where the correlation of material, construction, function and production technology was to lead to optimal performance with a minimum input of material, energy and time: a school of invention.

The workshop will return to this focus, with lectures, debates and practical work on a large scale, as spatial interventions, with the legacy of the arts and the crafts that was so integrated at the Bauhaus.

The work will culminate as spatial elements in The Upper Hall, for the Bauhaus celebration Thursday 22. august. The Bauhaus loved parties, so yes, let’s celebrate colour as a process “In Space”.
