Camberwell Space presents until November 9th the exhibition “Bauhaus: Utopia in Crisis” exploring how contemporary practitioners have been drawn to the social, utopian and transgressive aspects of Bauhaus history. The exhibition will be part of the OurHaus festival, which coincides with Bauhaus 100, the international celebration of the famous Bauhaus design school’s centenary.
The diverse collection of artworks presented in this exhibition will investigate the ways in which artists today are reframing the Bauhaus’s modernist legacy as one which includes political and subjective resistance. As such, Bauhaus: Utopia in Crisis addresses how artistic legacies intersect with contemporary concerns through understanding that the Bauhaus was a complicated interweaving of different positions and personalities and never a truly unified project.
Juan Bolivar, David Diao, Liam Gillick, Interactive Media Foundation & Filmtank with Artificial Rome, Maria Laet, Andrea Medjesi-Jones, Ad Minoliti, Sadie Murdoch, Judith Raum, Helen Robertson, Eva Sajovic, SAVVY Contemporary, Schroeter und Berger, Alexis Teplin, Ian Whittlesea are the participant artists.
