The scheduled Bauhaus talk on 12/02 is cancelled due to illness.
In March, SNFCC’s collaboration with Goethe-Institut Athen, in view of the 100-year anniversary of the Bauhaus School, continues through talks and art workshops for children and adults. Stay tuned!
“Bauhaus at 100” explores the legacy of the 20th century’s most iconic art & design school in the fields of architecture, industrial design, the arts, dance and education.
The teachings of Bauhaus and the management of architectural heritage
As we all know, Bauhaus is associated with a liberation from history and breaking with the past, without however specifying which “past”, considering that this is a notion that constantly changes and transforms according to the current era and circumstances.
By trying to distance itself from this fluidity, while at the same time seeking fundamental causalities and timeless truths so as to give meaning to the new conditions of architectural creation, Bauhaus has exhibited a strong historical consciousness. This historical consciousness, as it was expressed by its teachings, can be traced to the modern theory of restoration, while helping shed light to the principles, opinions and questions that concern the complex task of managing the past.
