Take a Breath! An Audio Collage on the Bauhaus
31 Mar 2022 – 26 Feb 2023
Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Black Box
In the past, the picture of a new understanding of humankind and its changed relationship with the world was clearly defined. The historical Bauhaus questioned the idea of the socalled New Man – in relation to his spatial environment and in the context of industrialisation. But even in the 21st century, many expectations are still placed on the New Man. The digital age promises tools for continuous self-optimisation. And the Covid-19 pandemic calls for enormous flexibility and speed in the use of digital tools. Time to pause for a moment, to focus on one’s mental wellbeing, is in short supply.
The Intermezzo creates a space for breathing. Visitors can take time to relax so that afterwards they can resume their tour of the exhibition and see it from a fresh perspective.
