BAUHAUS EFFECTS: A conference in Dublin, organised by the National College of Art and Design, University College Cork, University College Dublin and the Goethe Institut Dublin

7-9 February 2019

More details: https://bauhauseffects.com

Prof. Heike Hanada, the architect of the Bauhaus Museum currently under construction in Weimar

Prof. Irit Rogoff, one of the initiators of the transdisciplinary field of Visual Culture and founder of the department at Goldsmiths, University of London.


Call for Papers

As the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus approaches, we seek contributors to reflect on the legacy and resonances of the innovative artistic, architectural, design and teaching practices developed there.

Bauhaus Effects aims to assemble an interdisciplinary collection of papers that analyse the repercussions of the legendary Bauhaus school in the hundred years since its inception, considering the ways in which the broad range of practices — including material analysis, models of pedagogy, textile and wallpaper composition, theatre staging and costume design, photography, and interior systems – have transformed everyday experiences from the 1920s to the present day.

Bauhaus innovations and models of thought continue to resonate within the contemporary built environment, from chair construction to skyscraper design, from interior spaces to urban topographies, warranting a thorough, methodologically diverse studies of its effects a century after the school was founded.

Bauhaus Effects aims to investigate the continuing impact of the Bauhaus on an impressive range of contemporary practices across the globe. We propose that the Bauhaus was not just a radical art school but in fact initiated a fundamental paradigm shift in design culture whose import is ripe for assessment a century on.

We welcome papers from a wide range of perspectives, including urbanism, city and regional planning, architecture, drama and theatre studies, art school pedagogy, photo history, art history, contemporary art practice and theory, design history, corporate design and diaspora/exile studies.

Bauhaus Effects and Contemporary Art

We especially welcome proposals for contributions that relate to the practice and discourse of contemporary art. Given that this will be one of many conferences happening across the EU for the 100 year anniversary of the Bauhaus – for this particular contribution to the conference we feel at liberty to bypass those hegemonic legacies of the Bauhaus that might lead to historical or nationalist claims being celebrated without being problematized.

Hence, the contribution to the conference from the School of Visual Culture will be a strand in the programme that will consider the legacies of the Bauhaus in the context of contemporary art. We will interrogate alternative geographies and ways of working, thinking more about inhabitations of discipline and “school” such as the artist-teacher, radical pedagogies, student bodies, and so on.

Please submit a 300-word abstract and a 50 word biography by 1 July 2018 to:

Artist Talks | Steve McCullagh and Simon Mills

June 29 – June 30

Jun 29 at 4:30 PM to Jun 30 at 7 PM

Platform Arts Belfast
1 Queen Street, BT1 6 Belfast

Platform invites you to join us for an afternoon of discussion with the artists’ of our current exhibition and guest speakers.

Starting at 4.30pm

”Chaâba Valley, Safi Morocco.
Safi is famed for its ceramic production and over 100 workshops and kilns were built in the valley. Despite practicing in this environment for several generations the community has now been relocated to a new studio complex in another part of the city.”

Artist Simon Mills will host a discussion on his photographic work and installation in relation to the process of documenting not only the physical landscape of ‘the valley’ but the cultural, economic and political landscape of the region itself.

Simon Mills is a Belfast based documentary photographer. As well as exploring making processes and communities, his work also examines land use and our changing relationship with the landscape.

*Interlude with refreshments and discussion*

Starting 6pm

”Life on land is a multi format exhibition comprising of a series of large photographic prints and a sculptural installation of living mudskipper fish. The prints miscommunicate their subject: the sea. Wave ripples and singular reflections of light are obscured, as if the body of water is distilled down to its prototypical component. McCullagh’s artworks address the phenomenology of space and the subjectivity of perception studied through the photographic medium. Highlighting perceptual manipulation the works question the way we perceive things through direct interaction, expanding analysis and given contexts.

Presented by Platform Arts artist Steve McCullagh will discuss the development of his current Exhibition Life On Land with Dr. Francis Halsall, writer and Co-Director of the MA Art in the Contemporary World at The National Collage of Art Dublin and Dr. Ruby Wallis Artist and MFA Lecturer at Burren College of Art, Galway.”

Curating in the 21 st Century: Summer School with Morgan Quaintance

Applications are open / Deadline is June 25.

10-13 July, 2018

In addition to the curator’s traditional duties of administration, artist liaison, exhibition design, and fundraising, what other tools can be used to fulfill the essential curatorial function of presenting, interpreting, and disseminating contemporary art and ideas for a given public? This year’s Summer School, led by Morgan Quaintance – including key invited speakers, such as The White Pube (Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad) – will consider the possibilities offered by filmmaking, broadcasting and criticism. With an emphasis on the transference of practical skills and theoretical knowledge, this summer school is also aimed at artists and other cultural producers as participants will be given a basic introduction to each field designed to encourage further exploration beyond the course.

Morgan Quaintance is a London-based writer, musician, broadcaster and curator. Born in South London, he is a regular contributor to Art Monthly, and has written for The Guardian, The Wire, Art Review, Frieze, Rhizome.org, and a number of curatorial sites and blogs. He is a contributing editor for E-Flux’s online publishing portal Art Agenda, is a founding member of the curatorial collective DAM PROJECTS, and was the 2015/16 curatorial fellow at Cubitt Gallery, London. As a presenter he has worked with BBC radio and television, Channel Four, Artfund, the Royal Opera House, National Theatre and Roundhouse, and is also the producer of Studio Visit, a monthly hour-long interviews-based programme, broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM, featuring international contemporary artists as guests.

Course requirements
Participants should come with something they would like to curate (i.e. formally present, interpret and disseminate to a given public). It can be anything from an idea, socio-cultural or political issue, to a survey of artists or an artistic tendency. What is important is that each participant will have something to test out in the filmmaking, broadcasting and criticism sessions.

Application procedure
This programme is open to curators and artists.
Selection will be based on submission of a curatorial /artist statement, a short bio, an up to date CV and 4-5 images where appropriate.
Please note this four day course has a limit on places and is competitive.

‘The Inexquisite Corpse’, ACW Publication now available at The Library Project

A novella written collectively by Nathan Cahill, Jack Cole, Padraig Cunningham, Dorothy Hunter, Valerie Joyce, Ronny Koren, Stephen Lau, Roisin McVeigh, Sara Muthi, Sadbh O’Brien, and Hannah Tiernan is now available for purchase at The Library Project, 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2.

The Inexquisite Corpse

There is a cold blue light in the sky. A train trundles southbound through rural terrain. It has been raining, transforming the view from the windows into a blur of green and grey. Raindrops make tracks through the dirt on the train’s neglected car. The atmosphere amongst the passengers is subdued. It’s as if they know the cargo on board and sense unrest…

The Inexquisite Corpse is a speculative thriller set in the dystopic future of post-Brexit Dublin. Trains carry bodies living and dead, wakes are held in pubs, detectives quote Kristeva, and money talks if only to lament low self-worth. Amidst the chaos, a corpse becomes aware of its post mortem existence. Perspectives shift. Bodies have been altered…

I’m not heading to the necropolis,
I’m just a necro heading to a polis.

Unlike the methodology of “exquisite corpse” where each collaborator consecutively adds to a text in sequence, this novella has been continuously and collectively reworked and reedited by the authors. The Inexquisite Corpse is a gauchely assembled, rickety, interruptive, conflictual account, where no rule prevails and no voice dominates.
