In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the MFA Public Art and New Artistic Strategies will exhibit works by current students and alumni at the Schiller Museum in Weimar, Germany. The exhibition is a collaboration of the master program, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
100 years after the founding of the Staatliches Bauhaus, we, a group of bauhaus master students from 11 countries, will gather at Galerie Bernau to present a unique framework of permanent artworks, performances, interventions, artistic research, and temporal workshops open to the public.
Our presence as international students reveals the scope of the Bauhaus’ influence around the world. We investigate this influence in our work, studying its relationship with our respective cultures to open the Bauhaus to its contemporary context.
The artist’s work will be exhibited in the museum before being put up to auction in support of the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
“How Bauhaus are you? Who is Weimar’s Bauhaus master student? How do you measure yourself against the Bauhaus ideals? We are looking for teams who dare to reinterpret the Bauhaus in different sporting and playful tasks.”
In collaboration with Jakob Wirth (DE), Sophie Foster (GB), and Deniso Rosero Bermúdez, the Internationale Bauhaus-Meisterschaft will challenge the citizens of Weimar to live up to the Bauhaus ideals through a series of playful tasks. In turn the event will question the school’s relationship to its founding city and contemporary culture.
As part of his studies with the MFA Public Art and New Artisitic Strategies program of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Stefan will participate in a public art intervention at the Ruhr-Universität in Bochum, Germany.
More details concerning the project to come as information becomes available.
Since graduating from the University of Oregon in 2013, Stefan has shown his art in a dozen exhibitons, including solo shows at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (2015) and the Kathrin Cawein Gallery at Pacific University, Oregon (now on view). In May of this year, he was accepted to attend the MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies program at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany, where he will begin studies this fall. We are thrilled for Stefan and ask you to help us celebrate and consider buying a piece of art to help fund the move and further his emerging career.
