The Bauhaus was a great life experiment of a small community of young people, who after the First World War sought a social utopia.
IAAC invites you to relive and experience the famous Bauhaus parties with an evening of dancing, DJ sets, robotics demos and by having a chance to win a place at IAAC Global Summer School with our Best Costume contest.
The Bauhaus parties had also a pedagogical purpose: on the same day, the IAAC will allow you to fabricate your own costume for the party with the help of Fab Lab Barcelona and FabTextiles experts.
A day of open workshops in which you can learn by having fun, experimenting with digital manufacturing and recycled materials.
