Where to see?

Bauhaus Museum Dessau

“Bauhaus Digital” is a transformative experience at the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, reinventing historical art lessons in the digital age, making them engaging and inclusive for visitors of all ages.

Visitors step into a digital playground where they create 3D compositions with a simple touch. This hands-on approach allows to explore design basics effortlessly—by experimenting with geometric shapes, materials, colors, and compositions to design an unique digital masterpiece. The results can be shared via email and visualized as augmented reality sculptures.

This experience offers an unforgettable journey back to the roots of design, helping internalize its fundamental principles. It’s not just about creating art; it’s about living and participating in the world of design in the digital era, all in a contemporary and playful way. 

Die Anwendung war ein großes Highlight im Bauhaus Museum.
Meine Kinder haben mindestens 40 Minuten an dem Touchscreen verbracht und sie wurden sogar von viele Besucher umrundet, um zu sehen was sie kreiert hatten. Es hat ihnen sehr viel Spaß gemacht und sie fanden es sehr toll wie man mit den Fingern so gut in 3D Objekte kreieren kann. Es fehlte nur eine Anbindung an ein 3D-Drucker, und dann wäre es der Hammer! :-)

To bring museum art to visitors’ homes and to be remembered as a museum in times of pandemic, we developed a WebApp. For this, visitors can view the artwork they have created and proudly show it to their friends using augmented reality technology and share it on social media.
