Collaborate Textile Artwork to touch at "original bauhaus" - Exhibition celebrating 100 years anniversary of Bauhaus
How can blind and visually-impaired visitors experience the Bauhaus original archive of the weaving workshop, displayed on the wall behind glass frames? The textile artists Sara Diaz Rodriguez, Moa Hallgren, Justina Monceviciute and Evelyn Sitter have developed an installation that is to be touched, freely based on textile patterns by Anni Albers, Gertrud Arndt, Grete Reichard and Gunta Stölzl. The artwork was developed in collaboration with Berlins Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired “Allgemeiner Blinden- und Sehbehindertenverein Berlin”, kept completely in black to focus only on its tactility.
The artwork was a commission from Bauhaus Archiv e.V. and displayed at Berlinische Galerie from 6.9.2019 - 27.1.2020.
Three workshops were also held in the gallery space.
