International Summer School of Design Dessau
schaubau 2021 is an international summer school which takes place in the heart of Dessau—the city of the Bauhaus. A design camp, which is targeted at all creative students, pupils, craftsmen and -women, and creators of value of all designing disciplines like design, architecture, fashion, and art. This year, the schaubau Summer School of Design is dedicated to the future. And in this context, completely in line with this year’s motto weigh, choose, and dare. “Change means opportunity. It’s all in there, you just have to decide what to take out of it. The future belongs to those who find solutions where others only formulate problems.”
For one week, participants weigh, re-select, and venture forth. They explore and design graphic and typographic commentary to creatively formulate future perspectives and political possibility spaces. Using the environmentally friendly instant screen-printing process MiScreen, the designed results are put on paper, walls, and truck tarps and become visible in the urban space of Dessau. In addition to designing and creating, a culturally program ensures a varied, sunny workshop week. So don’t forget your swimming gear.
