40 objects – 5 conversations
The exhibition was realized in cooperation with artist Tilo Schulz (born 1972 in Leipzig, lives in Berlin) that juxtaposes 40 historical Bauhaus objects with five contemporary art works.
For the first time the museum showcases historical objects from its own holdings in Munich including textiles by Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl, but also luminaires by Christian Dell and graphic design work by Herbert Bayer and Lászlo Moholy-Nagy, not to mention ceramics by Theodor Bogler and Otto Lindig. In addition, metal works by Wolfgang Tümpel and Wilhelm Wagenfeld, furniture by Marcel Breuer and married couple Singer-Dicker, jewelry by Naum Slutzky, toys by Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack and Alma Siedhoff-Buscher are also on show.
In Tilo Schulz’s concept, five invited artists each explore one Bauhaus object and develop an independent work of their own which is then included in the exhibition. The international artists come from various disciplines. Invitations have been taken up by designer Ayzit Bostan, poet Barbara Köhler, architect Anupama Kundoo, composer Junya Oikawa, and artist Sofie Thorsen.
With this concept Tilo Schulz succeeds in uniting the past and present – and enables viewers to identify the historical origins and contemporary reflections on them.
