Digital Design and Bauhaus

Digital Design and the New European Bauhaus


#digitalbauhaus | 17 September 2021 | 1 pm  to 4 pm (CEST)


Free registration for the event

The world is moving into the digital age and Europe must actively shape this path according to its values, in particular scientific rationalism, fundamental rights, market economy and the rule of law. This requires not only the promotion of our technological competence, but above all a strengthening of our competence in shaping digitalisation.

100 years ago, the Staatliche Bauhaus set new standards that are still recognised and appreciated worldwide today. Digital Bauhauses are intended to specifically promote the design competence of digitalisation and to shape the European path towards digitalisation. 

In the event "Digital Design and Bauhaus", we want to take a deeper look at the relationships between digital design, sustainability and the New European Bauhaus.

Friday, 17 September 2021, 1 pm  to 4 pm (CEST)

Participation is free. You can register via message to Frank Termer.
