Myth Machine – The Bauhaus and Industry.
With the 1923 slogan “Art and technology – a new unity”, Walter Gropius formulated the programmatic direction of the Bauhaus. Yet it rarely gets questioned whether the designs of Bauhaus members were truly oriented to the advanced industrial mass production of the era. Was there a sufficient understanding of the individual branches of industry and the latest conditions of industrial factory production? And were the workshops truly equipped for prototypes of industrial mass production? The art and design historian Gerda Breuer probes the mythical image that the Bauhaus had of industry. The event takes place in German. Free admission
