Short Export 2018
We selected 6 wonderful short films from over 500 German festival entries; from bizarre to exciting to warm-hearted and hilarious stories, everything is included. Similar to a kaleidoscope, the films show different facets of German reality and thus offer a multidimensional image of Germany. Some Short Films are in German only.

Scholars such as Barry Bergdoll, Robin Schuldenfrei, and Wolf Tegethoff will connect Mies van der Rohe's projects in Europe to the U.S.

A Little Piece of Bauhaus
Monika Wulfers: Lines and Numbers
09/17/2018 - 12/31/2018, during office hours
Monika Wulfers uses impressive light installations to define space. She works with lines and numbers in a variety of media, most recently neon. Abstract components of space are two-dimensionally described, while arbitrary gesture and capricious “design“ are eliminated. Her work is reminiscent of works by Oscar Schlemmer, one of the great early Bauhaus artists, especially his Triadic Ballet (1922).
