In the summer of 2019, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation will invite individuals to attend the Architecture Festival RADICAL, which is one element of the three-part Festival Bauhaus Dessau consisting of School FUNDAMENTAL, Architecture RADICAL and Stage TOTAL. These festivals are taking place to mark the centenary of the birth of the Bauhaus.
Students from all creative disciplines who see construction and architecture as a utopian task are invited to apply with their concepts of radical newly motivated architecture with a written and illustrated personal statement (poster).
From all applications received, one hundred students will be selected who will participate in three intensive festival days at the Bauhaus in Dessau from 31 May to 2 June. Supervised by ten renowned architects and designers, students will be involved in workshops alongside lectures and open-space conferences, thinking, designing, living and celebrating together in an atmosphere with space for visions and utopias. At the end of the festival, concepts developed in the workshops and selected application posters will be exhibited and receive awards.
The headquarters of the festival will be located in the historical Employment Office designed by Walter Gropius, which will become the Office for radical contemporary design during the three-day festival. A further experience venue will be the open stage at the then not yet opened contemporary Bauhaus Museum Dessau. The open call winners will experience the highly varied programme points of the festival in both locations, for example the Signature Architectures with which the renowned architects will transform the festival locations into a discussion landscape alongside screenings of historical and contemporary architectural films and performances.
