Join us to celebrate 100 years since the founding of the Bauhaus art and design school.
‘Bauhaus Effects’, a conference marking the centenary of the Bauhaus art and design school will take place from Thursday, 7th February to Saturday, 9th February at the National Gallery of Ireland. As part of the Irish strand of world-wide celebrations, the conference will reflect on the legacy of the innovative artistic, architectural, design and teaching practices developed at the twentieth-century’s most influential school of art and design.
The event is a collaboration between the National College of Art & Design, Dublin, University College Dublin, University College Cork and the Goethe-Institut Irland, with support from Dublin City Council and the Deutsche Botschaft Dublin / German Embassy Dublin.
International speakers will examine the effects of the Bauhaus on individual disciplines, and investigate its continuing impact on contemporary practices: from concepts of space and colour to the design of toys and typography. Discussions will address the school’s international impact and its relationship to developments in fields including aviation, photography, hairdressing and shop window designs.
