Regina Bittner (PhD) studied cultural theory and art history at Leipzig University and received her doctorate from the Institute for European Ethnology at the Humboldt Universität Berlin. As head of the Academy of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, she curates and teaches postgraduate and cross-disciplinary programmes on transcultural modernism in design and architecture research. Her most recent curatorial projects include Versuchsstätte Bauhaus. The collection is a permanent exhibition in the Bauhaus Museum Dessau. Her research interests combine cultural anthropological approaches in architecture and design studies with questions of decolonisation, critical heritage and its mediation in teaching and curatorial practice.
Bauhaus – New Bauhaus
The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is an artistic-scientific Foundation with the mission of preserving and passing on the ideas and themes of the Bauhaus. The Foundation’s work is historically reflexive and simultaneously investigates the present-day relevance and contemporary potentials that may come from the Bauhaus legacy for the twenty-first century.
