FEMMES Bauhaus

This year’s theme, A Femmes City, deals with the feminine view of various aspects of the city. How does urban space appear from a women’s perspective, what potential is overlooked, and what development possibilities are held in public space? Who does the city belong to?

Female teachers and students at the Bauhaus (1919-1933) were mostly unnamed and forgotten. It was only during the celebration of the 100 year anniversary that traces were rediscovered. An idea emerged for a film project using the primary colors strongly associated with the Bauhaus as a catalyst to decode the movement as a construct. It came together in 2016 as a collaboration between a handful of people working in varied artistic disciplines – Matthias Kremer (film), Isolde Nagel (architecture) and Andy Ninvalle (choreography & sound).

Color, a predominantly one-dimensional visual perception, comes together with rhythm, movement, geometry, and space – all of which being multidimensional tangible phenomenon. The three sequences are about self-empowerment, feminism and friendship; sound, robots and mirroring; complexity and zeitgeist.
