Abstract:

The Bauhaus lab forms a three-month research community comprising eight international participants -- young professional working in the fields of design and architecture as designers, curators or researchers. Bauhaus Lab 2016 follows the travel routes of Walter Gropius' desk. Designed as part of a cohesive ensemble for the first Bauhaus exhibition in 1923, then in use in the director's room in the Bauhaus building in Dessau before being temporarily located in the Lawn Road Flats in London. Today the original is found in Lincoln, Massachusetts (USA). The Bauhaus Lab explores these transatlantic movements and in doing so makes the iconic desk itself a player in a constantly changing set of locations and social environments. The Lab will yield artistic and curatorial ideas about the communication of object-based histories of exile.
