“100 BAUHAUS: the heritage in a manifesto.” This is the title of an exhibition/project, realized by the students of RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts, to develop a research project in the field of visual communication, using the same techniques of exploration of the Bauhaus. The aim of the initiative, coordinated by the lecturer Paolo Buonaiuto and supported by the Goethe Institut, was to generate a series of handmade posters: no computer or technical support, only creativity. The concept of spirituality of the Weimar School of Design was expressed in the laboratory working directly on form, material and colour.
The visual products are not only graphic, but are made through different methods that have then been reflected in what is the material aspect related to communication.
The students of the Graphic Design course, after an intense phase of analysis, have structured an exhibition path that can be observed and visited from Monday, May 20 at 18:00 at RUFA Pastificio Cerere, in the heart of the roman district of San Lorenzo. The exhibition will be open until Friday 24 May.
The calendar of activities of the exhibition 100 BAUHAUS also includes a lecture of History of design about the Bauhaus held by the RUFA lecturer Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi, scheduled on Wednesday 22 May at 4 pm at the RUFA Semoleria.
The interest of the students shows how, after 100 years, the historical and cultural phenomenon of the Bauhaus, its professors, laboratories, disciplines and new languages, is alive more than ever.
Graphic Design students: Aurora Achille, Sara Brait, Lorenza Fracasso, Emily MacDonald, Claudia Spada.
