Bauhaus Lecture Series at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion on 7 and 8 October 2019

 

Guiding Architects, the international network for architectural tours, together with the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and the German National Tourist Board, is hosting a series of lectures entitled El Centenario de la Bauhaus - Viajes de ida y vuelta: Una invitación al diálogo (The Bauhaus Centenary - Journeys To and Fro: An Invitation to Dialogue), which will take place at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona on 7 and 8 October 2019 at 6:30 pm.

 

The two-day event, organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, seeks to disseminate knowledge and promote the exchange of ideas between Germany and Spain on the legacy of the legendary school. The lecture series will be complemented with a trip to the Bauhaus Cities of Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, which is expected to take place in spring 2020.

 

Invited speakers include the authors of the extension of the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and the new Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Volker Staab and Addenda Architects (González Hinz Zabala), who will present their respective projects on 8 October under the common theme of “Building the Bauhaus”.

 

Architectural photographer and theorist Carsten Krohn from Berlin and Catalan architect and professor of architectural theory and history Carolina Beatriz García Estévez will be the guest speakers on 7 October. On this occasion, entitled “Thinking the Bauhaus”, Krohn is going to talk about “the unknown Mies” and García Estévez about the literary and visual influences of Rainer Maria Rilke and Paul Klee in the work of Mies van der Rohe.

 

The lectures will be held in English. On both days, Thomas M. Krüger, co-founder of Guiding Architects in Berlin, will give a brief introduction to the topic and the speakers.
