The Value of Material l Liz Bachhuber, Weimar

Eine Vortrags- und Gesprächsreihe zur Kunst im öffentlichen Raum und neuen künstlerischen Strategien. In Zusammenarbeit des MFA-Studiengangs « Public Art and New Artistic Strategies » der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Fakultät Kunst und Gestaltung, Prof. Danica Dakić mit der ACC Galerie Weimar.
Vortrag in englischer Sprache. Eintritt frei!

When artists integrate garbage into their work they construct an alternative economy that reveals culture’s mechanisms of devaluation and exclusion. In this lecture Liz Bachhuber will show images of her sculpture and installation work with found objects and refuse as well as student work from projects done in collaboration with the environmental engineers at the Bauhaus-University. The « Bauhaus-Project » legacy promotes crossing disciplinary boundaries to investigate issues from a technical as well as an artistic point of view. The interdisciplinary excursions include artists, urbanists and engineers. Being good neighbors in a climate of mutual respect expands horizons and enhances tolerance of „the other“ for all participants. The disciplinary solutions are related but parallel responses to the same stimulus, based on a particular disciplinary skill set. All contributions are facets of perception and facilitate a complex and multifaceted understanding of a situation. However, our collaboration has evolved over time: in the current „Müll-Project IV“ art students are taught basic engineering principles and engineering students learn to see like artists through drawing and perceptual exercises. Only through a holistic and interdisciplinary approach will we be able effect change and meet the ecological challenges of today’s globalized world.
