The BHR OX bauhaus reuse on the central island of the Ernst-Reuter-Platz in Berlin is a new, public center and city laboratory for transdisciplinary education, research and participation.
In the coming years, the program BHR OX will focus on discourse, practice and performative projects with the topics: modern society, politics and building culture, housing, sustainable urban development and recycling society as well as the future of education and work. The glass construction consists of reused façade elements from the Bauhaus Dessau, which originated from its great postwar reconstruction of 1976.
The concept bauhaus reuse stands for the reuse and further thinking from a material and socio-cultural perspective: an examination of methods of interpretation and dealing with the heritage , the mission statements and narratives of modernity.
A focal point, starting in 2019 with the re: bauhaus festival, is the theme of social emancipation and political conditions in the context of Bauhaus and functionalist modernity, in transnational exchange, with a focus on Central and Eastern Europe. Further program focuses in 2019 are: the festival headquarters of the Bauhaus Week Berlin and in planning for the Triennale der Moderne 2019 in Berlin.
