100 international artists reflect their personal attitude to idee bauhaus on a DIN A 4 sheet
C E N T U R Y. idee bauhaus
Anyone who works in the fields of art, architecture, or design has inevitably engaged with the Bauhaus at some point, and in most cases, has developed a position on it.
As a programme and project gallery for conceptual and minimal contemporary art + architecture, drj is planning a project of its own to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus’ founding, forming a curatorial team and inviting 100 international artists to submit their personal reflections on the Bauhaus in the form of a DIN A4 sheet of paper.
These individual contributions will then be brought together in an exhibition called CENTURY. idee bauhaus, which will illuminate a broad spectrum of artistic approaches and attitudes, encompassing both personal closeness and critical distance to the subject.
The exhibition will be an exemplary visual answer to the question of whether [and if so, how] the legacy of the Bauhaus, which itself existed for only fourteen years, can still be recognized in contemporary artistic approaches.
Or is it perhaps more the decades of reception history that were formative—whether continuing and adapting Bauhaus ideas or rejecting them?
A list of the hundred artists who will have a multiple or serial work in the exhibition can be found at http://www.dr-julius.de/drj_projects__CENTURY.html
The curatorial team consists of museum director Simone Schimpf, MKK Ingolstadt, curator Sibylle Hoiman, Bauhaus Archiv Berlin, art scientist Frederik Schikowski, Berlin/Basel and architect and art collector Frank F. Drewes, Berlin/Bielefeld, as well as drj directors Christiane Bail and Matthias Seidel.
