Dust and Data, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, 26-29 October 2016

XIII. Internationales Bauhaus-Kolloquium
Dust and Data
26. – 29. October 2016, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar

The conference, titled ‘Dust and Data’, celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the International Bauhaus-Kolloquium and reflects on an almost century long history of the Bauhaus, its international influence and the migration of its ideas. Four thematic sections – OBJECT, ARCHIVE, MIGRATION and DATA – will examine new methods of historiography, architectural analysis and production in order to address contemporary architectural ideas in the context of global politics. Leading architects, artists, historians, theoreticians, media theorists and researchers will present new approaches to architectural history and practice.

During the Young Bauhaus Research Colloquium, on the 26th and 27th October, over sixty young international scholars, architects and artists will present their research in several workshop sessions. An exhibition about the history of the International Bauhaus-Kolloquium will be opened on 26th October and will remain open throughout the conference.
