Bauhaus turns 100 years old. Following this year’s theme, #influenced100, BERLIN DESIGN WEEK aims to show the influences of the Bauhaus era on current design approaches.

state of DESIGN stands for aspects of next-generation designs. The exhibition #RESOLUTION! presents innovative works and fields of experimentation by young designers today, whose works reflect the same ethos as it was practiced and lived during the Bauhaus era. What are the modes of operation for today’s pioneers? Which topics matter to them? Which materials and processes are employed?

Among the exhibits are works by the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Dessau, as well as dissertation pieces from the class Stefan Diez of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. The interactive VR installation “Das Totale Tanztheater 360” merges the past and the present into one. Inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s stage experiments, visitors are transported into a virtual 10-minute world of man and machine with music by legendary Berlin band Einstürzende Neubauten.
