Bauhausinteraction Colloquium Interdisciplinary Lecture Series

The Bauhausinteraction Colloquium is an interdisciplinary series of guest-lectures at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, initiated spring 2014, which is to address issues between technology and arts+design and the humanities.

This colloquium is organised by different disciplines at the Bauhaus-Universität, across media-informatics (applied computer sciences), media-design, media arts and product + interaction design.

In design, human–computer interaction, and software development, interaction design is “about shaping digital things for people’s use”, and alternately defined as “the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services.”
Going beyond an interest in the mere form, interaction design has its main focus on human behavior and the interplay between human actions and technology.

Coming from different disciplines in this colloquium we explore the central questions: Do we speak a common laguage? Are we ready for interdisciplinary dialogues and are we prepared for upcoming transdisciplinary challenges?

Through a series of lectures and workshops on interaction design and related topics. A selection of internationally renowned speakers will give insights into their work, current developments and discussions. The colloquium provides a forum for exchange of ideas, impulses for inspiration and interdisciplinary collaboration.

The talks take place on Monday evenings, unless announced otherwise.
All talks are held in english.
