UMBAU is an online journal for the promotion of art, research, and design emerging from Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG).
Between 1989 and 1993, a time of major socio-economic and technological change, Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design was founded as a 'digital Bauhaus'. UMBAU, an architectural term roughly translatable as 'remodeling' (to take a given structure and adjust it to contemporary situations) addresses this heritage and introduces a moment of destabilization. UMBAU welcomes trans-disciplinary modes of thinking the situational, the unfinished, the transitional.
Through bi-weekly contributions from international artists, scientists, philosophers, historians and designers, UMBAU captures up-to-date research, while its annual editorial themes enable an in-depth exploration of ideas.
