The Bauhaus100 Bonanza Show 2019
celebrates the 100-year-anniversary of Bauhaus, the influential German art school and cultural movement. Under the brand “Bauhaus100” numerous events, festivals, and exhibitions are happening in Germany and around the world throughout 2019.
Motivated by recently discovered Bauhaus traces in Minneapolis, Spiekermann and Noble decided to celebrate the 100-year-birthday in Minnesota’s cultural metropolis, as well, in order to not only connect Weimar and Minneapolis, but to also research on what Bauhaus means today.
For this special celebration, the artists are collaborating with the local Public access TV station, MTN.
Inspired by the attitude of interdisciplinarity and openness that was integral to the Bauhaus’s founding, the artists were drawn to the possibility of working with local public access, an inherently diverse medium predicated on access to communication technology.
