This exhibition highlights the iconic German style’s visionary and radical practices in Australia. Included are various contemporary experiments created by artists and students across fine art, architecture, and design disciplines.
Among major works in Bauhaus Now! is Mondspiel/Moonplay, a video performance installation by artists Mikala Dwyer and Justene Williams inspired by the original Bauhaus school that was forcibly closed by the Nazis in 1933. The piece contains a thistle garden at its heart surrounded by banners and video screenings depicting the expelled Bauhaus masters.
There’s also a vast collection of original Bauhaus archival source material in the exhibition, including postcards, drawing, magazines and prints. The exhibition has been curated by Ann Stephen, senior curator of the University Art Gallery, Sydney University Museums.
