Bauhaus 100

Bauhaus Museum
Kick-off for Bauhaus jubilee in Dessau
with Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas and Mikael D. Brkic

23 February 2019
2 pm – 9 pm
Bauhaus Museum Dessau
Mies-van-der-Rohe-Platz 1

Nude drawing played a central role in Oskar Schlemmer’s
teaching at the Bauhaus. The artists Siri Hjorth, Sebastian
Kjølaas and Mikael Brkić  explore its limits: The models
become costumed actors, the course becomes a lecture
performance, dressed as the goddess Freyja – and her cats.
The theme; Norse mythology in relationship to Bauhaus.

2019 marks the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus.
In Dessau this year there is a varied program. The opening
event of the centenary year in Dessau is one such experiment:
the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is making the Open Stage in
the new museum building accessible to visitors for the first time.
In music, performances and conversations, everyone can get
an impression of the varied programme in Dessau and immerse
themselves for a whole day in the Bauhaus centenary.
