Bauhaus Summer School 2019 - Visual Solutions! - Bauhaus, design basics and innovative design today - collage, drawing and painting

14.–23.08.2019

The course deals with visual and technical possibilities of design - from the Bauhaus to today.

In addition to an introduction to the movement and significance of the Bauhaus, we work on elementary principles of design such as composition, rhythm, balance, contrast, color, form and texture.

In doing so, we directly include topics from Bauhaus teaching and place them in the context of contemporary communication design.
We design posters and free work in collage style and work experimentally and analytically with different materials (colored papers, photo copies, various drawing material, stencils, acylic color etc.).

The course is flanked by lectures and excursions (Museum, Berlin Graphic Studio) and examples from the field of graphic design and illustration.
The course concludes with a presentation of the resulting work.
