Professor Rebecca Earley joins colleagues from UAL for Unbauhaus to explore creative responses and challenges to the framing of the EU New European Bauhaus initiative launched in 2021.
Organised by UAL, Unbauhaus invites you to join them share a collective response to the European Commission’s New European Bauhaus (NEB). The initiative is a call to shape the future of Europe as a creative and interdisciplinary movement in the making. Aiming to connect the European Green Deal to our living spaces, NEB calls for us “to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes minds, and souls.” Unbauhaus responds to the call by offering a range of critical and creative perspectives on NEB’s values – ‘beautiful, sustainable, inclusive’. Committing to social and climate justice requires dismantling and reimagining the ‘new’. As a contemporary creative university, UAL encompasses many art and design practices, research and partnerships that allow them to approach and engage in societal challenges in unexpected ways. Confronting injustice and unsustainability in our societies and ways of living today, they explore alternatives, make the invisible visible and the inaudible heard, and enable different ways of seeing, listening, thinking and making.
