New York based artist Lucy Raven won the Kunst am Bau competition for the Bauhaus Museum Dessau with her dynamic installation Lichtspielhaus, which consists of floor-to-ceiling glass panels in different colors: a work of art in motion!

Admission free.

Moderation: Prof Dr Peter Bernhard

The reading is part of the Conference Collecting Bauhaus.
