Photographs by Stefan Berg
On the occasion of 100 Years of Bauhaus Stefan Berg – through a contemporary visual vocabulary liberated from previously familiar cultural-historical and architectural discourse – makes it possible for the model thinking bauhaus to become visible in the present. The artist’s goal is to visually display the ideas of the bauhaus: to make the modernisation and formation of a society both clear as well as palpable. Through his concentrated photographic gaze, Berg explores the degree to which the ideas of the bauhaus are manifested in the example of the building in Dessau. Curated by Harald Theiss.
In connection with the exhibition-project the book "bauhaus – seen by Stefan Berg" has been published by Distanz-Verlag.
