Can artistic research contribute to imagining new perspectives, now that our way of life is shaken up?
When Walter Gropius developed an innovative form of art education with Bauhaus 101 years ago, he was driven by the conviction that the arts had a role to play in the reconstruction of society after the First World War. Today, it is not a world war affecting us, but a global viral crisis, throwing us into a similar momentum: the need to question the old and create the new. Not utopian, but with the resources we have at our disposal.
BAUHAUS 1 0 1 is the fifth edition of ARTICULATE, the annual research days of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. In this edition, we reflect on the possibilities of art education and artistic research in these disrupted times. How do we create alternative artistic models for encounter, creation, reflection, cooperation, dialogue and disagreement, while a forced transition to a less physical and more controlled daily working and learning environment is taking place?
Expect a series of fragile and wonderful encounters with the ability of artists to – over and over again – rethink their own practice and its position in the world.
