Light Installation at the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar

100 years of Bauhaus staged with light

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the "Staatliches Bauhaus", the ceremonial opening of the new Bauhaus Museum will take place in Weimar, in April. During this time, the city of Weimar invites you to celebrate the founding of the Bauhaus 100 years ago with a ceremony from 1st to 7st April.

At the beginning of April, the world looks to Weimar. "Without light there is no art". This short sentence by the famous Bauhaus master László Moholy-Nagy shows the importance of the medium at the Bauhaus. For him, art only acquires meaning if it reflects light. Artificial light was perceived as the material and tool of the future. The kinetic light installation "RAUM" gives this special anniversary and the historical epoch in which the Bauhaus was active an artistic form. In the evening hours it connects the venues with each other through a moving play of light and shadow.

The Concept

Light Installation Weimar
The kinetic installation "RAUM", a production of the city of Weimar, creates an enormous brightness and illuminates the entire Gauforum with a single light source in the center of a 3x3 m moving cube. The sides of the cube are made of different perforated sheets. Elements of glass (using colour effect glass NARIMA® and ribbed structural glass RIVULETTA®) and metal moving in the cube create a play of form and movement of light and shadow - in the cube itself and in its surroundings. Temporary light spaces are created, that connect the adjacent buildings with the installation by using them as projection surfaces. The constant movement of the cube changes the appearance of the Gauforum. It loses its fixed, oversized forms and becomes part of the moving light installation.
