The BAUNOW project will be presented at the Berlin Design Week 2019 as part of #RESOLUTION!, an Exhibition by state of DESIGN in cooperation with the Kunstgewerbemuseum of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
Upon reaching 100 years to the Bauhaus establishment, the BAUNOW project brought together 25 designers and researches from Master's Program in Industrial Design and Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Dessau in cross-countries workshops that generated joint design exhibitions in both Israel and Germany.
During the project, multidisciplinary research groups consisted of students from a variety of professional backgrounds such as architecture, product design, interactive, graphics and textile, revisited Bauhaus ideas from contemporary points of view. Through creative dialogues in a multidisciplinary environment, designing objects and spaces by merging technological, aesthetic and social perspectives, the group explored the relevance of Bauhaus values to contemporary challenges.
Bauhaus is a fascinating asset Israel and Germany share. The BAUNOW project aspired to make this asset into a new common language. By researching international Bauhaus ideas as well as the way they migrated and were absorbed locally in different environments, the students tried to raise a new design debate about the importance of the Bauhaus approach and its relevance to our societies today.
