Bauhaus Effects

Bauhaus Effects

NGI, Thursday 7th February - Saturday 9th February 2019

A conference organised by the National College of Art and Design, University College Cork, University College Dublin and the Goethe Institut Dublin.

Bauhaus Effects will assemble an interdisciplinary collection of papers that analyse the repercussions of the legendary Bauhaus school in the hundred years since its inception, considering the ways in which the broad range of practices have transformed everyday experiences from the 1920s to the present day.

Bauhaus innovations and models of thought continue to resonate within the contemporary built environment, from chair construction to skyscraper design, from interior spaces to urban topographies, warranting a thorough, methodologically diverse studies of its effects a century after the school was founded.

Bauhaus Effects aims to investigate the continuing impact of the Bauhaus on an impressive range of contemporary practices across the globe. We propose that the Bauhaus was not just a radical art school but in fact initiated a fundamental paradigm shift in design culture whose import is ripe for assessment a century on.

Documenting Jazz

DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama

The first jazz conference in Ireland will take place at the Dublin Institute of Technology, Conservatory of Music and Drama, Rathmines. Since it was first named, jazz has been a phenomenon of mass-distributed sound, word and image. While its vernacular origins and emphasis on improvisation give primacy to live performance, the consumption of jazz is largely mediated through documentation of some form. This process of documentation has arguably been just as important as, and in some ways more important, than ‘the music itself’, shaping its reception and spread throughout the world. In
