BAUHAUS 4.0 is a collaborative research project between Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (Produkt Design, Textil-und Flächen Design und Künstlerisch-Gestalterische Grundlagen) and TU Berlin, Fakultät I Geistes- und Bildungswissenschaften, Institut für Erziehungswissenschaft Fachgebiet Pädagogische Psychologie. This project focuses on the development of new digital teaching formats for experimental prototyping and robotic fabrication. The Solid Rapid Prototyping Lab at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, as a place of experimentation and design development, is the central platform for the research and will be expanded to include digital learning spaces.

In four case studies, the students will independently document and reflect on their learning process in the form of ePortfolios developed for hybrid teaching. Open Educational Resources (OER) will be then extracted for basic knowledge in digital prototyping, and continuously expanded by subsequent generations of students – an innovative media-educational approach.

People involved: Prof. Nils Krüger, Prof. Dr. Christine Goutrié, Prof. Christiane Sauer, Jörg Hugo, Agata Kycia, Konrad Jünger, Andreas Grasmück (Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Jan Pfetsch, Alexander Wedel, Verena Graf (TU Berlin).


The “Bauhaus 4.0” project is financed by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung as part of the funding line for digital higher education.

More information about the project you can find on the KHB website or press release.
