Upon reaching 100 years to the Bauhaus establishment, the Baunow project brings together 25 designers and researches from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Dessau in cross-countries workshops that will generate joint design exhibitions in both Israel and Germany. During the course of this project designers revisit Bauhaus ideas from contemporary points of view. Multidisciplinary research groups consist of students from a variety of professional backgrounds such as architecture, product design, interactive, graphics and textile. Through creative dialogues in a multidisciplinary environment, designing objects and spaces by merging technological, aesthetic and social perspectives, the group is in the middle of exploring the relevance of Bauhaus values to contemporary challenges, working on contemporary interpretations to Bauhaus values.
Bauhaus is a fascinating asset Israel and Germany share. Through five themes that had crystallized in the first joint workshop, the project aspires 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 we hope to raise a new design debate about the importance of the Bauhaus approach and its relevance to our societies today.
