WHAT IS IT?
The BID MEETING is a platform for reflection and debate of the Ibero-American community of Design Teaching Centres, convened by DIMAD within the framework of the Ibero-American Design Biennial (BID).
Come and share: communications, workshops, networking, conferences, workshops for teachers and design students, exhibition of student works, visits to training centers in Madrid, among others.
The figure of Madrid, which takes benefit of its idiomatic and geographical advantage, its vocation as a welcoming place with a significant cultural dynamism, has set itself up as a bridge city and starting city for all the editions of the BID Meeting and the Ibero-American Design Biennial.
The bid_est 2019 is an opportunity to highlight the future designers’ ideas and to know the emerging talent that is appearing from the classrooms. It is a significant meeting in the domain of design for promotion and dialogue between students, teachers and teaching institutions and between institutions and companies.
The Ibero-American Design Biennial presents the 8th BID Meeting of Training and Design / 100 Years after Bauhaus, with the purpose of continuing to support and disseminate good practices that show how to clearly articulate the creative energy of design and its qualified application to create a better society. The Encounter aims to provide a forum for academics and students to share and discuss ideas, showcase projects, experiences and results of teaching and student work and to address the challenges related to innovations and methodologies applied to Education and Teaching Research in the area of design.
This year marks the centenary of Bauhaus, the most influential school of art and design of the 20th century, which meant a change towards modernity and which is still present today in our artificial and material environment. Therefore, reflecting on its founding principles, pedagogical strategies and multidisciplinary ideals, surpassing the principles of modernity currently shared by multiple designers and design schools in their academic programs.
The Design Teaching Center BID MEETING wants to serve as a platform and as a network for teachers, universities and teaching centers, students and design professionals of all Ibero-America.
The Bauhaus was an awakening, a laboratory and a school; a place for research, teaching and creativity; a place for arts and culture. In today’s disruptive context one might ask: are the values enshrined in the founding manifesto as alive as ever before? are the paradigms established a hundred years ago still so today? does their pedagogy still have an impact on us? and in the future? If the Bauhaus model remains as relevant and contemporary as it was a century ago, how does it interact with the new paradigms?
