Symposium 1: The Weaving Workshop Revisited

Symposium 1: The Weaving Workshop Revisited

Publicerat 2019.10.08

Welcome to a two-day symposium presented by the Röhsska Museum and students of HDK – Academy of Design and Crafts. The symposium will be focused on practice-based research on occasion of the 100-year anniversary of the Bauhaus school.

In the spirit of Anni Albers, Bauhaus weaver, designer and writer, this two-day symposium will focus on ways to make practice-based research public. Anni Albers is recognised as one of the first weavers who theorized weaving through the writing of essays as part of her work as a textile artist. Her influence continues to provide us with key references in textile research today.

Through an open public event at the Röhsska Museum, the symposium aims to develop and implement research dialogues, exchanges and partnerships about how to make artistic research public on its own terms. This means moving beyond the confines of standardised academic text or power point lectures.

Applying the principles of the interdisciplinary Bauhaus school, the invited guests, such as students and researchers from the fields of fine-, applied- and performing arts, will present research findings in dialogue with the academic community and the public.

Kindly note that there is only a limited number of places available. Sign up here:

The lectures are in English, whereas the workshop will be in both Swedish and English.
