Bibliothek der Künstler*innen, Weimar is very excited to be part of the Bauhaus Spring School next year with our course “Opening the Archive!”
How can we approach archives in a creative way? How can the legacy of certain artefacts be challenged? What archival traces from past to present need to be re-examined? What stories do archives contain and whose are absent from them? What narratives need to be questioned and retold to help us better understand the complex problems we are facing today? Within the framework of the Bibliothek der Kunstler*innen, Weimar we would like to artistically open up and scrutinise the complex themes within archiving, from its possibilities to its limitations, and respond actively and creatively in order to
create new artistic perspectives.
The Bauhaus Spring School is an international short-term programme in a blended format (online/present) for students of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and students of its partner universities. We offer blended courses in the focus areas of art, technology, architecture and languages. The course costs are funded through the new BIP Erasmus programme. They start in the winter semester 2023/24 initially online and end with a joint in-class phase in Weimar in March 2024. All students of the Bauhaus-Universität, Weimar as well as for all students of our partner universities are welcome to apply by December 1st 2023. More information at www.uni-weimar.de/springschool
