Participation in exhibition design, drawing as an instrument of museum outreach, an elementary school of design, pupils as experts for discovery tours – in the first part of the publication the Bauhaus Agents discuss various approaches to the Bauhaus and to the new Bauhaus museums, to spaces of cooperation between school and museum, and not least to the strategy of the third location, that is, to positioning the Bauhaus in the city and in urban society.
The second part of the publication, issued in German and English, brings inspiring contributions from current cultural practice to bear on one of the programme's most important questions: "How can museums become open, lively and visitor-oriented places?" At the same time, contributions by experts in museums and educational and outreach work like Grit Weber (Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt am Main), Mustafa Akça (project "Selam Opera!", Komische Oper Berlin) and Ulrike Lorenz (Kunsthalle Mannheim) document the Annual Conference #1 of the Bauhaus Agents, which took place in the Bauhaus Archive / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin in October 2017.
