The talk is framed by two material concepts: dust and data. While dust foregrounds new approaches to the material analysis of objects and ruins, data designates new approaches to managing the enormous amount of information accumulated about the subject over the years.
Weizman’s latest edited book with the same title collects essays that unearth new details about the history of the school and do so from unprecedented viewpoints: uncovering the perspective of marginalized, dislocated, silenced, dispersed voices. These include the voices of queer architects, of the (too) few women practitioners, of those in the global South who studied at the Bauhaus or were influenced by its ideas, and the perception of the school beyond the Iron Curtain of the Cold War.
