2019, Saturday, March 16: HKW, in the context of 'bauhaus imaginista', presents the conference 'political imaginista' which features among a wealth of brilliant guests, our alum Sebastian De Line (DAI, 2016)
Two conferences will reflect the critical potential of the Bauhaus today: In March, political imaginista will discuss strategies of resistance against the new right, questions on internationalism and cultural appropriation, as well as ways of politicizing art, technology, and popular culture. A New School, the second conference in May, will illuminate the impact of the Bauhaus on the development of experimental pedagogy from a transhistorical and transnational perspective.
The opening conference political imaginista discusses strategies of resistance against the new right, questions on internationalism and cultural appropriation, as well as ways of politicizing art, technology, and popular culture.
