Bauhaus and America

Experiments in Light and Movement

100 Years of the Bauhaus: On the occasion of the anniversary, the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster is presenting the exhibition Bauhaus and America. Starting from the significance of the Bauhaus and, in particular, the Bauhaus stage as an interdisciplinary laboratory for experiments with light and movement, the diverse artistic examinations of light and movement—from light and kinetic art, to experimental film, to dance and performance art—by former Bauhaus members and Americans are addressed for the first time. The accompanying publication documents these fascinating examinations and provides in-depth insight into art life in America as influenced by the Bauhaus after 1945.
