"Digital Bauhaus: A Vision of Education and Creation for the New Century"
1999-08-06 until 1999-09-19
>In recent years, multifarious projects in creation and education based on the fusion of art with science and technology are underway around the globe- searching from various perspectives for visions of educational and creative activities appropriate to an age in which computer, networking, and of course audio/visual technologies are making rapid progress and coming into widespread use.
Interestingly, most of these projects are modeled in part on the 20th century mega-experimental environment--the Bauhaus. Founded in 1919, this assembly of cross-genre multi-talents effected numerous creative revolutions.
Ultimately, the Bauhaus integrated all forms of art in Bau (building), aimed at the fusion of art and industry. On the threshold of the 21st century, however, information space via media and the Internet is added to physical space creating a new form of integration and transport space.
This exhibition probes the new challenges of education and creation we are facing, such as collaborative creation and media method, as explored from a variety of fields.
