Multidisciplinary Exhibition Previews in Berlin to Mark Bauhaus Centenary

BERLIN – As part of the 2019 Bauhaus Jubilee celebrations, the Berlin Academy of Arts previewed on Monday an exhibition celebrating the influence the German modernist art school has had on contemporary arts.

The “Light.Shadows.Traces” exhibition at the Berlin Academy – featuring works by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Tim Lee, Christian Boltanski, Jan Tichy and commissioned pieces by Quadrature and Tim Otto Roth – is one of a series of wider events across the country celebrating 100 years since German architect Walter Gropius founded the revolutionary Staatliche Bauhaus school of art, architecture and design, a widely influential visual language marked by functionalism and a profoundly modernist aesthetic.

“Works by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and other renowned contemporary artists-scientists are counterposed with those of two newcomers,” the Berlin Academy of Arts said on its website.

“They all trace the poetry and magic that evoke the interplay of light and shadow,” the academy added.

One of the installations, “Total Dance Theatre,” questions how humans relate to technology and machines by immersing the viewer in a three dimensional experience of Groupius’ concept of Total Theater – derived from Richard Wagner’s idea of a Gesamtkunstwerk, a work in which music, voice, movement and spectacle combine to create one unified piece of art – and Oskar Schlemmer’s ideas on figures in space which he developed with the “Triadic Ballet” premiered in 1922.

In 2014, the Berlin Academy of Arts commissioned a reproduction of Schlemmer’s ballet working with the dancers of the then Bayerisches Staatsballett II – today Bayerisches Jugendballett – and set to wow audiences again on Jan. 22 at the academy.

The costumes the dancers will wear, also known as sculptures, are made from wood, textiles, plastic, glass, wire, whalebone and papier-mâche, and are on display as part of the show.

The exhibition is set to launch with a music concert by German jazz pianist Michael Wollny, who has composed a piece of music that grapples with the complex question: “what does Bahaus sound like?”

The year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus school and as such the Bauhaus Association is set to celebrate the centenary worldwide with numerous exhibitions, events, research projects and more under the motto “Rethinking the World.”
