Gropius Bau Giving Space
Space, both literally and metaphorically, is vital to education. The three-year-long project Gropius Bau Giving Space responds to the current demand for spaces for educational work in Berlin and aims to build long-term collaborations with partners in the city. Within this framework, the Gropius Bau provides studio and exhibition space to independent groups, initiatives or projects for several months at a time, the positioning of which also contributes to greater visibility for educational work in the building. From more than 80 submissions to the open call published in summer, the expert jury consisting of Nevin Aladağ, Çağla Ilk, Clare Molloy, Rebecca Raue, Stephanie Rosenthal and Henry Ward selected the project We’ll be making lots of noise by Catriona Shaw and Frèd Bigot, who use two rooms of the Gropius Bau for their educational work from October 2019.
