International Bauhaus Colloquium - Dust and Data
The Young Bauhaus Research Colloquium, Dust and Data, hosted by the Bauhaus Universität Weimar as part of the International Bauhaus Colloquium, aims to reflect upon the most urgent theoretical, historical and political questions facing architecture today. Taking place in 2016, precisely forty years after its inauguration in the GDR, and just prior to the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, this conference will engage with Bauhaus history against the backdrop of the emergence of new historical methods, new modes of collection and technologies of interpretation, as well as problems of reconstruction and preservation that define the praxis of architectural history and theory today. We invite papers by scholars to present research that seeks to locate architectural history and theory of modernism and the Bauhaus, specifically, against the backdrop of a world in flux. Scholars can be PhD candidates, PhD graduates or researchers in the field of architecture, architecture and art history, conservation studies, cultural theory, media and information science.
