In this lecture performance under the title “Anni and the Feline” which was first produced for a Bauhaus symposium at Yale School of Architecture in 2019 and now is re-staged at MOMus-Experimental Center for the Arts, Berlin-based artist Judith Raum deals with the textile workshop at the Bauhaus at the transition to National Socialism in Germany.

Interweaving projected imagery, text and sculptural actions, “Anni and the Feline” addresses textile materials that have long been believed to be lost and were rediscovered by the artist: translucent lace nets for the window, delicate materials that despite their soft appearance did not remain untouched by the changing political circumstances in Germany around 1933. The lecture performance also addresses the opposite professional positioning of individual Bauhaus designers, such as Otti Berger and Lilly Reich, during the Third Reich.

 

The event is coproduced by Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki, as part of the on show exhibition “The Event as a Thread” at MOMus-Experimental Center for the Arts.

The lecture will be held in English.
