ARCH+ features 47: Assemble & “Project Bauhaus” 2016

Thursday, 17.03.2016

7PM

KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Auguststr. 69, D 10117 Berlin

Few contemporary practitioners rival Assemble Studio in their dedication to overcoming disciplinary limitations, cutting through the fragmentation of modernism, and changing daily life through community-oriented design – for this very reason, they were recently awarded the prestigious Turner Prize. Together with “Project Bauhaus” in its effort to answer last year’s overarching question, “Can Design Change Society?”, the Assemble Studio team has been invited to discuss their work and their position as designers.

At 7PM on March 17, following a keynote speech by Amica Dall from Assemble, the coordinators of “Project Bauhaus” – Jesko Fezer, Nikolaus Kuhnert, Anh-Linh Ngo, Philipp Oswalt, and Jan Wenzel – will discuss this year’s new annual question with Oliver Elser (DAM), Alex Hagner (gaupenraub +/-), Anne Kockelkorn (ETH Zürich), and Laila Seewang (ETH Zürich): “Can the Universal Be Specific?” The discussion will focus on the issues of a “right to housing,” a “right to the city,” and a “right to the world.”

The keynote by Amica Dall and the discussions will be held in English.
