Bauhaus Agenten

An educational programme for the new Bauhaus museums – funded by “Bauhaus 2019”

The Klassik Stiftung Weimar, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin/Museum für Gestaltung plan to launch a broad-based educational programme which will shape the future pedagogical activities in their new museums. In this joint programme, a team of “Bauhaus Agents” will work together with pupils, teachers, artists, designers, architects and urban researchers to develop new formats for an innovative and comprehensive educational programme at the new Bauhaus museums. Similar to a four-year training programme, each Bauhaus site will embark on new educational paths and explore new forms of collaboration. The goal is to incorporate the Bauhaus theme into the curricula at schools in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin in the run-up to the commemorative year 2019.

Starting in the 2016/17 school year, nine “Bauhaus Agents” designated by the Bauhaus institutions will begin working with pupils at 36 schools in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin for a period of four school years.

Dessau

The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation will assign four agents to conduct projects at sixteen schools in Dessau in order to develop an education programme for the new Bauhaus museum in Dessau.

Weimar

Three agents will be supervising projects at up to twelve schools for the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s new Bauhaus Museum. They will also collaborate with schools in other regions on specific project- and theme-based programmes in order to meet the high demand for educational formats for supraregional school groups.

Berlin

The two “Bauhaus Agents” at the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung will focus their efforts specifically on developing educational formats for various types of schools and make them available to all schools in Berlin.
