german-polish bauhaus.workshop

Prof. Anja Stöffler

The influence of Bauhaus on Eastern Europe was enormous – in cooperation with the Polish-Japanese Academy of Computer Technologies Warsaw, a group of German and Polish professors and their students will investigate the influence of Bauhaus on design and art in Poland and Europe. The German-Polish exchange between the universities of Mainz and Warsaw has been ongoing since 2011.

The current research project “Future Text” is a research platform for text-based communication in a cultural, international and interdisciplinary context. The cooperation partners were invited by the director of the Gutenberg Museum to participate in the special exhibition “ABC. Avantgarde – Bauhaus – Corporate Design. Printing and Advertising at the Bauhaus” and to present this in a final presentation. This is also to be done within the context of the institutionalised cooperation between the Gutenberg Museum and the university and the partner from Warsaw.

The bauhaus.workshop at the Gutenberg Museum is dedicated to working on topics ranging from print to digital. The starting point for the German-Polish workshop is an examination of the content of quotations from well-known Bauhäusler and their staging in print and extended media technologies such as augmented reality. The project is particularly aimed at lecturers from both partner universities as well as selected young academics, students of the courses “Time-based Media” (Mainz) and “Multimedia Communication” (Warsaw). The aim is the joint search for and interpretation of sources that prove the influence of the Bauhaus on culture and art in Poland and Europe.
