Bauhaus100 Bonanza Show 2019

  • Info

The Bauhaus100 Bonanza Show 2019 is 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.

Having found Bauhaus traces in Minneapolis, the idea arose to celebrate the 100-year-birthday in the cultural Minnesotan metropolis in order to connect Weimar and Minneapolis, as well as research on what Bauhaus means today.

For this special celebration, the artists used the opportunity to collaborate with the local Public access TV station, MTN.

Inspired by the attitude of interdisciplinarity and openness that was integral to the school’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.

Artist Bio

Nora Spiekermann & Lee Noble

Nora Spiekermann (Germany) is a Berlin-based artist who just returned from a 8-month stay at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). Focusing on performance, intervention, and video, she gains her inspiration from public space, its issues and chances. While studying in Weimar, the founding city of the Bauhaus, she examined the effects of the Bauhaus Centenary and attempted her own appropriation of this event.
Communicating with the audience and building platforms for participants to meet and exchange is always part of her work.

Lee Noble (United States) is an artist and composer working in between sound, collage, and multimedia. His work is concerned with the exponential accumulation of information in the internet age and the bleeding together of various media forms and cultural expressions. He is a graduate student at Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD).
