Project description

The Bauhaus.Module From Field to Skin was splitted into two parts:

Part 1: Understanding the Textile Chain and Sustainability

Conventional cotton vs. regional hemp fibers - what can sustainability mean in the era of fast fashion? In this Part we examined the complexity of the (non-transparent) textile supply chain and raised awareness of its weak points. We aimed for understanding and questioning the entire life cycle of a garment during the seminar. Aspects of environmental protection were analyzed from an easily understandable engineering point of view, but also from an ethical and social perspective and viewed from an artistic and design point of view.


Part 2: Development of Sustainable Concepts for the Fashion Industry

Fast fashion or fairly produced organic cotton Eco fashion? Greenwashing, Eco trend or fairstainability? How much sustainability do we wear directly on our skin? We approached the issue from the cycle and started with the raw materials. Which materials are used and how can the processes be improved more holistically?

For this purpose, solutions should be sought, alternatives were tested and experiments dared. Whether clothes-swapping, filtering water, producing fibers or drafting a concept, practical ideas are required. We worked in an open-ended and process-oriented way with the diverse expertise that students of the various disciplines bring with them.
