The student projects from the preliminary course at the Bauhaus Dessau School of Design are unique documents of a unique learning process. As students set to work independently translating the experimental assignments set by Bauhaus Masters like Josef Albers, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Gunta St lzl, they produced a huge variety of interpretations. In their variety and open-endedness, these exploratory works testify to the dual process of acquiring knowledge and making new discoveries that characterizes learning. Design Rehearsals invites international educators and designers to look at a selection of student works originating from different courses at the Bauhaus. Serving as public guest critics, the commentators critically examine the historical student works, considering their artistic and pedagogic relevance today.
