Description: Bauhaus Lab is a three-month research program for scholars and practitioners in the fields of architecture, design, and curating. The aim of the Bauhaus Lab is to create an interdisciplinary research community which addresses a topic from the field of global modernism over a three-month period. Each Bauhaus Lab focuses on a modern design object that simultaneously serves as a thematic anchor and starting point for the collective mission of research. The program is held in English and is free of charge. At the end of the three-month period the findings will be presented in the framework of a joint exhibition at the Bauhaus Dessau. The 2021 theme is “Vegetation Under Power.”

Award: All participants will be provided with workspaces in the Bauhaus Building and receive a contribution toward their housing expenses and a modest per diem. The program includes field trips to various sites in the Anhalt region; the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation covers travel and accommodation expenses incurred during these excursions. Participants are expected to be present on site during the entire period of the program, to contribute to the collective research, and to meet regularly with the program organizers for follow-up and feedback.

Eligibility: International career entrants and postgraduates from the fields of architecture and design as well as young curators and design researchers can apply. People with profiles hitherto marginalized in Western academic and cultural institutions are encouraged to apply.
