The online scientific publishing platform bauhaus-imaginista.org is home to details of the research processes and results of bauhaus imaginista. It reflects on issues before and after the events and exhibitions of bauhaus imaginista and deepens insights gained through a network of collaborators and international researchers. The online journal relates to the artists commissioned for and around the events and exhibitions, as well as publishing reports by local correspondents.

The platform bauhaus-imaginista.org will be a continuously growing resource, a “work in progress”, divided into four conceptual editions (Corresponding With, Learning From, Moving Away and Still Undead), which will be filled with research texts and materials, videos, photos and artists’ pages and documentation about exhibitions, workshops and symposia held in the cities of Rabat, Hangzhou, New York, Kyoto and Tokyo, Moscow, São Paulo, Lagos and New Delhi in 2018, and in Berlin in 2019. → more

The Bauhaus and Morocco

In the years when Western nations were committed in new projects of partnership, with what was then called the “Third World”, young artists and students from the Maghreb had grown up in the passionate climate of the struggle for independence, were talented, open to modernity, and eager to connect with twentieth-century international art movements, which were different in production and spirit from colonial ideology and culture. → more
